Seek help: Panic disorder can be very disruptive to an individual's life. The fear can worsen with time and not learning tools or trying medications to manage the level of anxiety. Seeking help for this disorder is very effective and structured.

Panic disorder is sometimes a recurrent illness that can recur in various forms. If that is the type you have then you should see psychiatrist for intervention.

Exposure therapy: Once medical prob is ruled out find a therapist who specializes in panic disorder, esp helpful is exposure therapy for panic, where gradually, w the therapist's guidance, u intentionally & repeatedly bring on various symptoms of panic, interspersed w/ relaxation techniques. By doing this over & over again, physical sensations that accompany the panic feeling will no longer trigger a panic attack.
