While panic attacks are not dangerous, they can be very frightening, and many sufferers describe the experience as an overwhelming feeling of impending doom, or that they are about to die.
Some people say they feel an overwhelming urge to escape from the situation they are currently in, for example, they may suddenly feel the need to get off the bus, or perhaps escape from a meeting at work.
Symptoms of a panic attack often include rapid heartbeat breathlessness (hyper ventilating), dry mouth, nausea, sweating, dizziness/feeling faint, disorientated, shaking and for some, an upset stomach.
Some people also experience chest pain and think they are having a heart attack.
Panic attacks can happen very suddenly and while they usually only last for a matter of minutes, they can leave the sufferer feeling very shaken and exhausted afterwards.
