For many individuals it begins suddenly with an unexpected “panic attack” which is not triggered by a major life event.

However, some people can pinpoint the overt onset of their disability to some incident or situation, such as losing a baby, the death of a parent or spouse, or fear at work or at home. What Are The Symptoms? The panic can cause adrenaline to surge through your body. The adrenaline causes physical responses that would occur if an individual were confronted with a physical threat.
