      Typically, panic attack presents with acute and extreme anxiety or fear and physical symptoms such as increased heart rate, shortness of breath, trembling and muscle tension. Person catastrophizes his/her symptoms and has a sense of impending doom such as fear of having a heart attack or passing out. It usually lasts for few minutes up to half an hour.
