A panic attack is a: Sudden episode of intense fear that triggers severe physical reactions when there is no real danger or apparent cause. It is a real medical condition. It can occur in anyone independent of a psychiatric condition but may be associated with many psychiatric conditions including an adjustment disorder. Seek treatment if problematic and recurrent. It can help. Best regards.
