In brief: You may have PD if U
1) experience frequent, unexpected panic attacks that aren’t tied to a specific situation.
2) worry a lot about having another panic attack. 3) are behaving differently because of the panic attacks, such as avoiding places where u’ve previously panicked. Still, even if u don't meet the specific criteria for pd, u deserve to feel better about ur symptoms! consult w/ ur dr. Or a therapist. Gl!
