In brief: Remain Calm

Panic attacks involve sudden feelings of terror that strike without warning.
These episodes can occur at any time, even during sleep. People experiencing a panic attack may believe they are having a heart attack or they are dying or going crazy. http://www.webmd.com/anxiety-panic/guide/panic-attack-symptoms

In brief: Overwhelming thought

Too many thoughts that are unprocessed that occur too quickly without keeping a running inventory over things the patient does and does not have control over, occasionally resulting in paralyzing panic episodes.
