When living beings are in danger, they react instinctively with three types of behavior: petrifaction, flight and attack. This is exactly what happens in a panic attack, except that there is objectively no obvious reason for it, as there is no immediate danger. The body goes into a state of alarm for a few minutes and only then can it be calmed down again. For those affected, such attacks are usually a great strain. They have the feeling of losing control and make their anxiety even worse. However, there are ways out of the misery.
