Panic attacks usually subside on their own over the next several hours. Often, those afflicted will experience significant anticipatory anxiety and limited symptom.

Eventually, the pattern of avoidance and level of anxiety about another attack may reach the point where individuals with panic disorder are unable to drive or even step out of the house. This can be one of the most harmful side-effects of panic disorder as it can prevent sufferers from seeking treatment in the first place. At this stage, the person is said to have panic disorder with agoraphobia. People who have had a panic attack in certain situations may develop irrational fears, called phobias, of these situations and begin to avoid them.

Anxiety attacks and panic attacks are one and the same. They are classified as Anxiety Disorders and categorized as Panic Attack Disorder (PAD).

Once established, anxiety attack disorder can be very debilitating. While everyone experiences brief episodes of intense anxiety from time to time, and a great many people experience one or two anxiety attacks over the course of their lifetime, anxiety attack disorder occurs when these attacks become frequent or persistent, begin interfering with or restricting normal lifestyle, or when the individual becomes afraid of them.

Anxiety attack disorder is best treated early. Conditions allowed to persist often become more complicated, and consequently, lengthier to treat.

Anxiety attack disorder generally starts with one unexplained attack that causes the individual to become concerned.
