The coronavirus pandemic is affecting the whole world. This is why many people are experiencing panic disorders for the first time ever.
A panic attack happens all of a sudden. It brings with it short-lived disabling anxiety, fear and discomfort.
People´s hearts starts racing and pumping blood so their muscles have the fuel to run and fight. Getting themselves out of danger. Yet, in this case, when people are having a panic attack, they’re not responding to something that requires fighting or running. They respond to invisible triggers. Some of the symptoms of panic disorder — tightening of the chest and breathing difficulties — are often confused for symptoms of covid-19.
