Panic disorder is a pattern of repeated, unexpected panic attacks. Panic attacks are sudden, strong feelings of fear or anxiety along with symptoms like shortness of breath, dizziness, or a pounding heart.
A panic attack is scary, but it isn't life-threatening. Counseling and medicines can reduce or get rid of panic attacks.
