You’re not the only one suffering from panic disorder.
More people are suffering from panic disorder than I thought and are maintaining a healthy life through treatment. Most panic disorder shows great improvement in symptoms due to treatment, and in many cases, complete recovery is possible.
It’s a disease that can be cured with just a simple medication if you get an accurate diagnosis and start treatment at the beginning of a panic attack.
In addition, there is another effective treatment called cognitive behavioral therapy, even if medication alone is difficult.
Don’t be afraid by yourself.
If you come to the nearest psychiatrist, you can go back to your old healthy self.
Panic disorder is a form of anxiety disorder in which severe anxiety attacks and the various accompanying physical symptoms suddenly occur without notice.
In the past, panic disorder was not widely known to the public, but it began to become known these days, revealing that many celebrities and celebrities were suffering from panic disorder. But many people don’t know exactly what the disease is.
Panic has a similar meaning to fear, which is called ‘panic’ in English. The etymology of panic begins in Greek mythology. Pan, a Greek myth, is a woodcutter of half-humanity, whose personality is so fierce that when napping is interrupted in broad daylight, the word ‘panic’ was created because it instilled fear and panic in humans and livestock.
- History of panic disorder
It took almost 150 years for panic disorder to separate itself from heart, nervous system or other internal diseases in modern medicine. The first person to record about panic disorder patients is J. A. Hope, a British cardiologist. His 1832 cardiology textbook describes patients with neurotic heart attacks.
• There was nothing worse than fear and anxiety in the patient. He had a preposterous imagination that he would die of a substrate heart disease, which shuddered with fear. The patient’s thoughts were very hard to shake off because the depression and despair caused by the neurotic condition that caused the patient’s symptoms further fueled his imagination.
In 1871, U.S. military doctor Jacob Mendes DaCosta found that some of the soldiers who fought in the Civil War had sudden heart attacks, pain in the heart, difficulty breathing, and so on. DaCosta named the soldiers “Irritable Hearts” because they had no real heart disease, but were more than autonomic nervous systems that were sensitive to the heart due to extreme activity or frequent excitement. This became more known through subsequent wars and has been called “Dacosta syndrome,” or “Soldier’s Heart,” or “Effort syndrome.”
It wasn’t until 1940 that these symptoms were accepted as a form of anxiety reaction that became known as a disease that was supposed to be treated by psychiatrists, not physicians, and became a psychiatric disorder.
Since then, panic disorder has been treated and treated like a common anxiety symptom and has been treated separately from chronic anxiety by Donald Klein.
Klein recently discovered a decrease in panic attacks on patients during clinical trials with imipramine used as an antidepressant, and also confirmed that panic symptoms occur regardless of depression or other psychiatric symptoms.
This has led to a new kind of disease known for panic attacks, which are completely different from chronic anxiety.
In addition, a more scientific approach to the stagnation of panic attacks has been taken through tests to induce panic attacks through the injection of lactitis by Pitts and others.
- What is panic disorder?
Even if it’s not a medical condition, when we’re suddenly surprised or in a state of extreme anxiety, we’re often called ‘fantasy.’ But the panic attack that we’re going to talk about is a little different than the sudden surprise.
Panic is a sudden fear that comes from a life-threatening situation. Therefore, panic is the body’s response that can appear normally in anyone under life-threatening conditions.
However, panic attacks are a morbid symptom that causes the body’s alarm system to malfunction and feel threatened, even though they are not particularly threatening.
For example, imagine going on a lonely road alone at night and seeing a robber with a knife. Everyone will experience a tremendous fear of “I’m dead” as they react with their hair standing on end, their eyes growing as big as a drop of a king, their mouths wide open, their hearts pounding, their breath-taking, their hands and feet shaking.
In fact, anxiety in dangerous situations has an important function that helps us protect ourselves. If we don’t feel any anxiety in extreme situations, we will be difficult to maintain our lives or are likely to be seriously injured. Therefore, the primary purpose of anxiety is to protect oneself from danger.
However, if you are not in a situation where you have to feel dangerous or anxious, you will find it difficult to keep up with your daily life.
This is the state of panic disorder!
