I got my first Panic Attack at Seventeen.

I got my first Panic Attack at Seventeen. Symptoms usually begin before the age of 25. Although panic disorder may occur in children it is often not diagnosed until they are older. People with this condition often have medical tests and exams for symptoms related to heart attack or other conditions before a diagnosis of panic disorder is made. Panic disorder occurs twice as often in women as in men. A person with panic disorder often lives in fear of another attack and may be afraid to be alone or to be far from medical help.

Well, actually, as long as there is something to panic about, no matter what age, you can always have a panic attack
