What is Panic Disorder?

Panic Disorder consists of experiencing panic attacks or fearing recurring panic attacks.  Panic attacks can be characterized as out-of-the-blue, tremendous rushes of fear that are quickly accompanied by heart racing, sweating, difficulty breathing, dizziness, tingling, or nausea.  Sometimes people who experience panic attacks even fear they might be dying.  When not experiencing panic attacks, people with panic disorder can spend so much time worrying about when their next attack will be that they end up missing out on activities and places they used to be able to enjoy. 

Currently, we are not conducting any panic disorder studies.
