In brief: Several ways
Panic attacks can be just that-panic attacks.
Or it could be issues with heart irregularities, mitral valve insufficiency for instance. When do they occur & under what circumstances, or are they random?Does exercise trigger them? Are they associated with any medication you may be taking, adhd meds for instance? Answering these questions with your physician will then determine correct treatment.
