Find a Calmer Way To Live With Panic Disorder Services From Bloom

While everyone experiences fear and anxiety at some level, a panic disorder (attack) is a specific and intense episode that can come on suddenly without a specific trigger. These episodes can be extremely debilitating and can come with a variety of physical symptoms as well. 

Panic Disorder can feel overwhelming and isolating, but you don't have to face it alone. At Bloom Health Centers, our therapy for panic disorder includes counseling, medication management and more. Contact us today to request an appointment.

What Is Panic Disorder?

Panic disorder is a distinct form of anxiety. While most anxiety disorders cause panic attacks, these attacks have clear triggers. When panic disorder causes an attack, it doesn’t have a clear reason for happening. The panic attacks become a panic disorder when they cause an individual to change their behavior or feel anxious about future attacks.

A panic attack causes many severe and uncomfortable symptoms, including:

  • Feelings of fear and dread
  • Increased heart rate
  • Trouble breathing
  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Shaking

While panic attacks don’t pose any physical danger, they can affect a person’s well-being, and these symptoms tend to cause additional stress.

How Does Panic Disorder Impact a Person’s Life?

The unpredictable nature of the attacks caused by panic disorder makes the person with the condition fear having more of them. As a result, they can experience anxiety symptoms or develop additional anxiety disorders. Many individuals with panic disorder have agoraphobia because they create an association between their attacks and specific locations. Some begin to avoid certain places or objects out of fear of triggering an attack. Someone with panic disorder also has a high chance of developing depression or medical problems.

They may prescribe one type of medicine or multiple medications. Over time, they’ll also help you adjust your medication dosages for optimal treatment.
  • Therapy: Understanding your thoughts and feelings and how they relate to your panic disorder can help you manage your symptoms.
