Most common anxiety attacks symptoms
Typically, the first anxiety attacks symptoms seem to appear without warning," happening while a one is doing something he/she is used to like driving a car or reading a book.

Suddenly, you might be deluged by a storm of scary and uncomfortable symptoms. These signs often include terror, , or being afraid you are going to lose control.
those who experience anxiety disorder have feelings of terror that strike suddenly and repeatedly with no warning. They can't predict when an attack will occur, and many develop intense anxiety between different attacks, worrying when and where the next one will strike. And often they are terrified that another attack might come any minute.

When a panic attack strikes, most likely your heart pounds and you may feel sweaty, weak, faint, or dizzy. Some report their hands tingle or feelings of numbness, and they feel flushed or chilled. You may have chest pain or smothering sensations, a sense of unreality, or fear of approaching doom or loss of control. You may genuinely believe you're experiencing a heart attack, stroke or are about to die. Attacks can occur any time, even even when you are asleep. While most attacks only last a couple of minutes, occasionally they can go on for up to 10 minutes. rarely, they may last much longer.

Anxiety disorder a lot of people today, and may be more common in women as in men. It can manifest at any age--in children or in the elderly--but most often it begins in young adults. Not everyone who experiences panic attacks will develop anxiety disorder-- for example, many people have one attack but never have another. For those who suffer from it, though, it's important to seek treatment. Untreated, the disorder can become very disabling.

Signs and symptoms of anxiety disorder are often accompanied by other problems such as depression or alcohol abuse, and may spawn phobias, which can develop in the same situations or places where panic attacks have taken place. For instance, if a panic attack occours while you're in an elevator, you may develop a fear of elevators and perhaps start avoiding them.

Some people's lives become greatly restricted -- they avoid normal, everyday things such as going shopping, driving, or maybe even leaving the house. Or, they may be able to confront a feared situation only if accompanied by a spouse or other trusted person. The bottom-line is, they avoid any places they fear would make them feel helpless if a panic attack strikes. When people's lives become so controlled by anxiety, as happens in about slightly less than half of all people with anxiety disorder, the condition is known as agoraphobia agoraphobia. A tendency toward panic disorder and agoraphobia goes in families. Still, quick treatment of anxiety disorder can often stop the degeneration to agoraphobia.

Hope after reading this, you will be able to quickly spot those anxiety attacks symptoms.
