Panic Attacks

October 31, 2013

One in ten people have at least one panic attack -- a severe attack of anxiety and fear which occurs suddenly -- each year. Panic attacks are real and and can cause even more trouble for future health. A study of more than three thousand older women found that those who reported at least one full blown panic attack during a six-month period were three times more likely to have a heart attack or stroke over the next five years. Experts say panic attacks may trigger heart rhythm problems and stress hormones released during an attack may harm the heart. If you suffer from panic attacks, talk to your doctor about the risk of heart problems.
