Common symptoms are; Feelings of pain, fear and uneasiness. The person may also have reoccurring nightmares, uncontrollable or obsessive thoughts, trouble sleeping and dizziness. Of course, it's to a certain extent that it is anxiety and you should try and get her to a doctor.

Other symptoms Include :

  • Chest pain or discomfort
  • Dizziness or faintness
  • Fear of dying
  • Fear of losing control
  • Feeling of choking
  • Feelings of detachment
  • Feelings of unreality
  • Nausea or upset stomach
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Palpitations or pounding heart
  • Sensation of shortness of breath
  • Sweating, chills, or hot flashes
  • Trembling or shaking
  • Racing thoughts

There are often extreme changes in behavior at home, school, work, or with family. People with the disorder often worry about the significance of their panic attacks. They may think they are "going crazy" or having a heart attack. One thing that I feel when having a panic attack is that I'm going to be sick.

Anxiety expresses itself differently in everyone. So you might experience something not on the list above, or more than one object on the list above.
