Panic Attacks: We were born with natural instincts of our muscles to move. If you are tired, you do not have to do strenuous exercise. You can stroll, walk or just relax in the water. A British Study stated- Panic Disorder with increased risk of Heart Disease. Stress or panic attacks do not lead to scarring of heart. Panic attacks are treatable with good success.
