jalyn m molz's insight:

A panic attack is a sudden surge of anxiety or fear. You do not have to have a panic disorder in order to have a panic attack. Some people may have only one panic attack in their life time, but many people experience repeated episodes. Panic attacks feel like you are having a heart attack or you may feel like you are dying.
