Paradoxically, during an attack, many patients do not always understand what is happening to their body. The syndrome occurs unpredictably and can develop, both after nervous tension, and in a calm environment. Symptoms escalate as quickly as possible to peak levels. Mental manifestations prevail over all others:

  • paralyzing pointless fear – a phobia of death, insanity, an uncontrolled act;
  • depersonalization;
  • stiffness or vice versa, motor excitement;
  • feeling of impending disaster;

Somatic symptoms resemble a vegetative crisis, starting with bouts of lack of air and chest pain.

Frequent attacks-associated manifestations:

  • sweating;
  • chills;
  • nausea;
  • lightheadedness or dizziness;
  • hot flashes and cold;

Due to the constant fear of sudden attacks, the patient’s behavior changes, the quality of life decreases, and problems arise in the mental and physiological sphere.
