Dealing with the classic disorder panic attack
Dealing with classic disorder panic attack? To some people is like trying to get an elephant off you – well, let’s just say “the feeling aint nice”. People who have recurring persistent attacks or who often feel severe anxiety about having another episode are said to have a classic disorder panic attack – a panic disorder is extremely different from all the other types of anxiety disorders, that’s because panic attack episodes are often very sudden and unprovoked. However, studies have shown that the fear of having an attack is enough to trigger a panic attack and some underlying factors can also be responsible, but these attacks just suddenly happen for no good reason.
How do people deal with classic disorder panic attack and lead normal active lives? There are several ways to treat this condition but most times people often jump to medications, because they think it is the fastest and surest way of treating their panic disorder. Well I have got news for you - You do not need to pop pills in other to deal with a classic disorder panic attack (did I hear a “yippee skippee?!”).
Here are the most common remedies for dealing with classic disorder panic attack:
1) Cognitive Behavior Therapy
This therapy will help a panic attack sufferer deal with this condition because it focuses on thoughts in addition to behaviours. It helps patients identify and challenge their negative thought patterns and irrational beliefs that may be fuelling the sufferer’s anxiety.
2) Exposure therapy technique
Patients of this disorder confront their fears in a safe, controlled environment. As patients are exposed to their fears either through their imagination or in reality, they begin to gain a greater sense of control because they have faced their fears without being hurt. This therapy will help make classic disorder panic attack gradually diminish.
Medication is thought to be more effective when combined with behaviorial therapy. Medication does not cure anxiety disorders, it helps sufferers relieve symptoms of panic attacks and help calm the individual. You must consult with your doctor so that he or she can tell you if you are a right candidate for anxiety medication (these drugs can be habit-forming and you do not want to be known as the pill popping guy/girl that lives across the street). Anxiety medicines are also known to have side-effects, some of which include:
- Memory loss
- Suicidal thoughts
Other home remedies for dealing with classic disorder panic attack include:
Aromatherapy is an effective treatment for anxiety, and great part is that you can do it all by yourself. The most effective oil is lavender – you don’t like lavender? – You can use jasmine or sandal wood, it’s your choice.
5) Vitamin supplements
Are you getting enough vitamins? Because vitamin deficiencies (particularly vitamin B) often lead to anxiety episodes, so try taking B-complex supplements daily.
- Drink lots of water every day
- Take it down a thousand- avoid stress causing situation
- Cut down on smoking, alcohol and caffeine
- Eat lots of fresh fruits, veggies and complex carbohydrates.
