Depression and panic attacks are often correlated as cause and effect. Often PA appear in neglected cases, when the patient prefers not to seek help from a specialist. So PAs are quite a bright symptom, and a depressive state is a fertile soil for their appearance. At the same time, they seriously aggravate the suffering of a person and prevent him from leading a full life.
In this case, the methods of treatment of panic attacks should be aimed at identifying and eliminating the cause of depression. Often, medicines are used to relieve symptoms. This is just a temporary measure, so without the help of a psychologist here can not do.
Depression and panic attacks: what is the trigger?
First it is necessary to understand what led the person to a depressed state. Given that this disease affects people of both sexes and any age, there are many options. Sometimes this is an external factor: the death of loved ones, loss of work, failure in the personal sphere.
But in my practice it happens that the causes of depression are hidden. In such cases, I identify the source of the problem using the methods of psychotherapy and choose the appropriate treatment. If you do not do it in time, the person becomes worse.
A prolonged depressed state leads to bouts of anxiety and increased anxiety. Here panic attacks begin to develop. They are manifested:
- Sharp pressure jumps;
- Nausea and vomiting;
The methods of treatment for panic attacks should be included in the process of getting rid of depression. It provides a search for the cause (which was the trigger) and work with it. I also teach a person to manage their emotions, control them during stressful situations, overcome apathy. This helps not only to get rid of depression and all its symptoms, but also significantly reduce the risk of its occurrence in the future.
