This is something I have been interested in for quite sometime. I have spent a fair bit of time researching panic disorders and anxiety attacks symptoms on my own. I am not a doctor nor do I claim to be one.
My personal reason for wanting to learn more about panic attack disorders was my husband’s mother. Now I know the age-old jokes about your mother in law but she really had issues that were hard to believe at times. I watched her family fight and bicker about her, some thought she was sick others thought she was looking for attention. I was once told by one of her neighbors that she was “a rather odd one “. She was a rather odd lady to say the least, but she also had problems that nobody myself included understood or knew how to deal with. Little did we realize at the time that she was suffering from panic attack disorders or what she was going through.
When I first met her, Brian her husband did all the errands. I never saw her go shopping in the 20 plus years I knew her. She was a stay at home wife, she very seldom went anywhere, She was happy within the four walls of her house. This is what we all believed not knowing that really she was afraid to leave her house. One morning, I was told that she would try to go shopping with her sister-in-law. These trips always ended the same way with her embarrassing my poor husband’s aunt one way or another. Either she was holding on to the walls of the mall as she was rock climbing afraid she was falling or holding her chest unable to breathe. I am sure we have all gone to the mall and been over whelmed by the crowds. But for her it was very different, she could not stand the though of even being in a store; she had to escape this situation. The look of shear panic in her eyes was unforgettable. Knowing what I now know, I believe she was exhibiting a lot of panic attacks symptoms.
Over the years she started to show other anxiety attacks symptoms. For example one day we received a telephone call that she had been rushed to the E.R. with the shocking news of a heart attack at the age of 45. Her heart was racing; she had chest pains, shortness of breath and felt like she was smothering. After a few days in the hospital they released her, as they found no physical reasons for her condition. Nobody is going to take a chance with this and not take something like she was exhibiting very seriously. This was the start of many trips to the hospital.
