Every person experiences panic attack at some point in his/her life. It is something which we just have no control over. Basically it is just a feeling, felling of depression or fear or similar.

You probably experienced mild panic attacks when your teacher asked you something in lower grade, you just not remember it. You had a panic attack when the girl you liked and always want to talk to, suddenly came right up to you to talk. The causes are just endless, they are simple, but you don’t have control over them.

Most of the times, panic attack is a temporary condition and as soon as the situation changes it ends. But there are cases where it may become serious issue; these serious attacks are given the name of anxiety panic attacks. This situation is generally due to some unknown threat or fear. Something of which you are afraid of real or imaginary, the feeling of such attacks is quite different and severe than ordinary attack.

There is nothing you can do about these attacks as these are just the natural reaction of your mind and body when you face some real or perceived threat, danger or things which you are not expecting. They are just the signals of some sort of an impending danger that may lie ahead.

Below are the top three panic attack causes!

1. Danger

Danger or harm is one of the most basic and primary causes of panic attacks. You may feel danger while you are on your way to home at night from lonely path, or you may feel panic when suddenly you hear a voice that calls for you while you are sitting at your home. Danger can be real or it might be perceived. No matter whether real or perceived you will feel an attack of same magnitude in both cases.

2. Depression

Depression is another root cause of panic attack. Being depressed means that you are missing something or someone in your life, and this is a perfectly normal feeling. A depressed person just can not controls his or her feelings and emotions, which provides the basis for panic attacks. When your emotions are out of your control you are most liable to such attacks.

3. Phobia

You may be asked by your boss or teacher to give a presentation in public or class about something. Suddenly, it seems that you have no tongue to speak, no lungs to breathe, your heart starts beating fast. These all are symptoms that you are having phobia associated with public speaking.
