Panic Attack Circle explained.

The panic disorder test is a questionnaire based on scientific literature. The questionnaire should not be used as a diagnostic tool, but just to give you an idea about your problems and the severity of them. Sometimes people experience panic attacks, but they are not aware of them… sometimes people think they experience panic attacks, but they don’t meet the criteria for panic disorder or panic attacks.

This questionnaire takes only two minutes of your time and you get immediate results. The panic disorder test is set up in such a way that the questions simply require YES/NO answers. For more information about panic attacks and panic disorder, please click on the blue links below.

What is a panic attack?
 
A panic attack is a sudden surge of overwhelming fear and anxiety. You experience shortness of breath, feel your heart pounding and you might even feel like you are dying or go crazy. During a panic attack the fear response is out of proportion for the situation. Often the situation is not even threatening. A panic attack usually last about 10-30 minutes, but more than an hour is possible too. The problem with panic attacks is that they make you afraid for the next panic attack. You start to focus more on physical signs and misinterpret them, leading you to worry more about a possible new panic attack and eventually you will experience one. Over time you develop a constant fear of having another panic attack. This constant fear affects your daily functioning and quality of life.
