Drawing attention to yourself by breathing loudly, holding your hands on your neck, and disrupting class. These are mainly done by 14 year old girls who fail at life so they have to make people feel bad for them, ironically, these people that have "panic attacks" are made fun of much more than "normal" people and have a very average lifes but like to make it seem like they have big problems in their life, for example, saying your dad is an alcoholic or that your dad makes you do math problems in the middle of summer.

A panic attack is basically one of the worst things that anyone could ever experience. If you are having a panic attack you feel nauseas, very hot like you have a fever, feel like you have to go to the bathroom, and feel very scared/worried all at the same time.
Panic attacks are some of the worst things that you could ever experience.
The absolute worst possible feeling a person can ever experience. Period. Basically having a panic attack feels like impending doom even though absolutely nothing can be going wrong in the outside world. Symptoms include, but are certainly not limited to:
Fear of heart stopping
Spinning/Spiraling sensation when you close your eyes
Basically, it just majorly sucks balls to go through a (real) panic attack. Panic attacks are one of the most misunderstood terms in today's vocabulary. Commonly in today's society people will make the statement "I'm having a panic attack because I have so much work/school/other issues to think about", this of course is not true, because someone who is going through a panic attack is literally so scared they can't even speak. It is actually a mental disorder that should be treated immediately because literally NO ONE deserves to feel this shitty.
If I met the man who murdered my grandmother, and had the option of making him experience panic attacks as punishment, I don't think I would. Literally crushing his nuts with 2 bricks would be a less severe punishment
Also known as anxiety attack. When something so worrisome that makes you anious till it effects you physically. It can be consider one of the worst but most common mental horrors. It affects many who have overcome traumatic experiences when something triggers their mind/brian to "rexperience" it to the point it makes them physically ill. Can be triggered by word, feeling, sound, smell, etc. Most who suffer from panick attakcs cannot be left alone if its so sever. Might be considered like a seizur for its usually sub-consioues and unpredictable. It may last for seconds to days. Many can sleep it off or take sedatives to get over it. Many can over come it by mind tricking method's, such as extreme detailed sensory stories, singing, focusing on one thing etc. Some may cope with then symptoms by merely breathing slowly, holding someone's hand(s) or talking. It is sometimes very hard to find what triggered the attack but when you do you can use the information to prevent an attack.
OMG, that girl is having a panic attack.Hold her hand and tell her to breath slowly while I call her shrink!
An attack of anxiety or fear which triggers the body's fight/flight response.
This can give rise to a number of unpleaseant physichal and mental symptoms.
Contarary to some belief, medication is not needed to "cure" panic attacks.
They stop when you stop trying to fight them and just accept them and patiently wait for them to end.
Also a healthy diet, excercise and thinking about other people/things and not yourself helps greatly. Another thing that helps if you practice it is observing your feelings and not engaging with them.
"Why is she freaking out about every little thing and why does she think she has a brain tumor/heart attack"
"Shes having a panic attack"
"hey man how are your panic attacks?"
"I don't get them anymore, I realised I was just making them worse by worrying about them and trying to fight them, when I stopped doing that and started accepting them they went away in a month"
When a person falls to the floor and slips into an un-controllable, OTT, attention seeking fit to gain sympathy. A panic attack will normally happen over something very small and the intention is to blow it out of all proportion.
Symptoms include eyes-widening, writhing, breaking surrounding objects, hyper ventilating and screaming.
"Oh my god she's having a panic attack!"
"Help me! I thought they were going to hurt me! They were going to throw me in a pool"
"Oh thats a shame. I thought it was something exciting."
