The number of panic attacks a person has and the amount of time between them varies greatly from person to person. Some days, you might have no panic attacks, while on a really bad one you might have several. There are lots of ways to help get through and control panic attacks; the best thing to do is to talk to your doctor about what might work for you.
I get panic attacks maybe every other week. During high stress times (finals week, big events) I get them more like every three days.
It depends on the day. I have gone 3 days without one and I have had 4 in a day. When I am busy I tend to have less and when I'm alone all day I tend to have more.
You have panic attacks without know it so probably everyday, a panic attack can be just staring, crying, hyperventilating(not being able I breath), or stuttering.
It defers from one person to the other. Some could have them a couple of times a day, other could have them once a year.
Its just depends on you... you cab control most of the things happening inside us.. I know it gets more difficult when somethings happen quite often... but its okay.. loving yourself will help.. a lot eventually. . Medidation..letting things go off ..all these will make things better slowly steadily but it will... good luck .. :)
I have somewhat severe panic disorder that is medicated, and usually get 1 to 2 panic attacks a month. I get anxiety attacks (less severe, usually have a direct cause and are more manageable) about twice a week at most with medication. Unmedicated, I can have anxiety attacks almost daily and about 4-6 full on panic attacks a month.
depends on how much we allow them to contol us instead of controlling the panic and taking its power away becomes less and less of them
it really depends on the person. my panic attacks do not follow a set pattern, though sometimes they door others.
Panic attacks can come anytime, anywhere, when we feel excessively stressed and worried, whether it is a real or imagined fear. There really is no timeline for when they will happen.
I get panic attacks basically everyday. I can get triggered by loud noise, or too many people near me
I think panic attacks occur when we have the worst experience of our life in any case like if we are working somewhere and suddenly the unexpected news come to our knowledge that our office is overtaken by terrorists so the news may gave us panic attacks not to all of us but may be a specific person with the weak heart or with certain chronic disease like diabetes or blood pressure.
Panic attacks can happen at any time and sometimes even multiple times a day. The number of panic attacks a person experiences depends on a multitude of factors including: stressors, physical wellness, emotional well being at the time and environmental factors. The number of panic attacks you have can also be biological depending on how your genetics are set up. The reason our body experiences panic attacks are when the fight or flight response is kicked in.
It can differ from person to person. Some people may never experience one in their life, or experience only a couple. In other more extreme cases it can be almost daily.
It all depends on the person. This means that some people get attacks more frequently than others. Often we have panic attacks when we experience a situation that we find stressful or uncomfortable. Because we all find different things stressful or uncomfortable we can get panic attacks in different frequencies (for example a person who finds lots of different day-to-day situations stressful is more likely to have panic attacks than a person who does not easily get panicked)
when in school, it's between 3 and 5 per day, but i have some probs like agoraphobia and social phobia that doesnt help
Panic attacks can vary from person to person. Many things can affect if someone has a panic attack and how often, it isn't something that can be predicted too easily
I get them once a week and l can have up to 4 or 6 times on the same day
For some, it happens on the daily. For others, it can happen once a month, or even once a year. Panic attacks are often caused by a lot of stress to the body, so whenever there is stress, it can happen. They also occasionally happen for absolutely no reason.
Panic attacks generally happen when a person feels overwhelmed by anxiety, so can happen as frequently (or infrequently) as we feel overwhelmed.
I think it depends for each person. Some people get many panic attacks daily, some people only get them when triggered by certain things. It depends I think.
Not everyone gets panic attacks so this is a tough one! Usually panic attacks happen randomly and as often as a person has a trigger that occurs
