The anxiety attack can last only a few minutes. But it can also last several hours, leaving the person completely exhausted, as the symptoms can be significant. This crisis usually occurs suddenly, either in a dreaded situation or unexpectedly.

We often find the following signs:

  • Palpitations, tachycardia
  • Sweat
  • Tremors or sometimes even muscle twitches
  • Feeling of breathlessness, choking, strangulation
  • Chest pains
  • Nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting
  • Feeling dizzy, headless, feeling fainting, unwell
  • Feeling of depersonalization (as detached from oneself)
  • Feeling of intense and inexplicable fear

The symptoms of an anxiety attack can be very impressive. They can sometimes look like a real heart attack. It is therefore very important, in the early days, to eliminate serious organic causes. To avoid the risk of missing out on a real heart problem. Cardiac arrest, we die. The crisis of anxiety, no!

Anxiety attacks can also be manifested by physical symptoms such as repetitive digestive disorders. Nausea or vomiting, stomach pain. Difficult, then, to determine if the discomfort associated with the crisis is related to the digestive discomfort ... or if it is the cause.
