Anxiety Attack


Published on

Anxiety attack, also known as panic attack, can occur all of a sudden. The general sensation can be related with the instinctive feeling of running away from danger. An unexpected rush of adrenaline sends signals to the brain, which in turn activates that flight instinct. Like when you’re scared of a real and current threat, you sweat, shake, palpitate and feel nauseous.
