Health Tip: Panic Attack

Symptoms can mimic heart attack

(HealthDayNews) -- Panic attacks can be intense and disabling. In fact, people sometimes mistake a pounding chest and racing heart rate -- common panic attack symptoms -- for a heart attack, according to Barnes Jewish Hospital.

Here are some other signs of a panic attack:

  • Heavy sweating.
  • Shortness of breath.
  • Sensation of choking.
  • Nausea.
  • Dizziness or unsteadiness.
  • Feelings of unreality or being detached from oneself.
  • Fear of losing control.

If you think you suffer from panic attacks, speak to your doctor. The condition can be treated with medication and therapy.
