"Panic attacks feel different for everyone, but typically include sensations like a pounding heart, sweating, a feeling of terror, constricted or rapid breathing, and feeling as though the room is closing in on you or spinning. Regardless of how they present, a hallmark is that the normal things we might do to manage anxiety (deep breathing, CBT strategies, talking with a support person) often don"t work because our bodies and brains are too dysregulated to tap into those skills. If you"ve tried those things when a panic attack comes on and have been frustrated that they seem to not help, or even that they make things worse, you are not alone! Below you"ll find a few strategies that may be more successful in the midst of a panic attack, and can help get you to a place of nervous system regulation that will make it possible to tap into those other skills."
