The study of identical twins and completed by anxiety and Clinical Research Unit at the University of Milan, showed that 57% and 43% (respectively) of those with attacks also had siblings with panic attacks. Another study showed that as many as 40% of the risk of panic disorder genetic bases.

Now, it should be noted that it is unlikely that "only" gene causes panic attacks. What is more likely is that the gene causing one more susceptible to other causes attacks, such as hypersensitivity. However, there is no reason to believe that genetics does play a role in the likelihood of developing panic disorder.

It is not typical for people with mental health problems to take disorder as a compliment. But with panic attacks, many experts believe that intelligence can play a role. Attacks are more common in those who "live in their heads", which can also aggravate the symptoms, how the mind seems to rotate out of control. It is possible that people with higher IQ tend to focus more internally, to increase their awareness of their physical and emotional sensations, and the setting for movement disorder panic.

Hypersensitivity is greater general awareness of your body. Everyone feels pain, headaches and increased heart rate every day. Those without panic disorder do not notice, and if so, rarely attribute it to something potentially dangerous. People with anxiety disorders, however, are too sensitive to these sensations. Not only do you notice any - also experience the adrenaline rush and anxiety when they do. Some believe that the panic attacks create hypersensitivity, while other theories that hypersensitivity is in the first place.

Stress can also trigger panic attacks - though interesting that not everyone is necessarily going through attack symptoms of stress. However, those that have severe load may be more susceptible to the first attack, in particular. It is not clear how stress causes attacks, but it probably has something to do with the negative thoughts associated with those under tension. Stress can also increase the likelihood of attacks occur, although much of this stress can be caused by concern over the same attacks.

Most forms of anxiety have something to do with the fight or flight response. In addition, these other forms of the drug may also be more susceptible to attacks. It is possible that those with panic attacks have too much or too little of the neurotransmitter, or too easy trigger for adrenaline, and this creates an environment more prone to panic.

Health Anxiety can also be a factor of panic attacks. It is possible that health anxiety causes the first attack, because the first time someone suffers from a attack often worry that something is wrong with their health. More common, however, is that the formation of health panic attacks and anxiety health is more
attacks and panic disorder.

In rare cases, panic attacks can be caused by medical conditions or medications. It is not very common, but the conditions of the thyroid, thyroid hormones that change and some rare diseases such as Lyme disease are known to increase the risk of attacks. In addition, there are certain drugs can cause panic attacks, either during or after withdrawal of treatment.

The interesting thing about attacks is that the causes are not always important. Despite everything that contributes to attacks in your life could be worth deciphering, attacks themselves can be managed or cured with appropriate strategies for reducing anxiety - even if panic disorder is genetic.

In order to cure these panic attacks, but it is important to look at the symptoms of attacks and how they affect you. Only then you can have treatment to combat these symptoms.
