More About Panic Disorder
Doctor’s don’t know exactly what causes panic disorder, but one possibility is that the brains of people who have it may be especially sensitive in responding to fear.
A few things can make you more likely to have panic disorder:
- Someone in your family has it
- High levels of stress
- Frequent negative feelings or trouble dealing with negative emotions
Pain disorder may start after:
- A serious illness or accident
- The death of a close friend
- Separation from family
- The birth of a baby
People with this disorder often also have major depression, although there is no evidence that one condition causes the other.
There isn't a lab test specifically for panic disorder. Because the symptoms can feel a lot like those of a heart attack, your doctor probably will start by examining you and ruling out other health issues. If no other condition is causing your symptoms and you’ve had two or more random panic attacks and live in fear of a repeat episode, you probably have panic disorder.
