What are panic attacks?
Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology, answeredYou can almost think of this as acute episodes that are born from things that normally wouldn’t be a cause of stress, like feeling doom when you get in a car. In other words, it’s an exaggerated flight-or-fight response that doesn’t necessarily match the situation. If you get panic attacks, you experience symptoms such as shortness of breath, an elevated heart rate, sweating or chills, nausea, dizziness, trembling, and a sense of dissociation, along with intense fear.
What is mental health?
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Mental health, also sometimes called emotional health, is the ability to be well-balanced and in control of your thoughts, emotions, and actions. People with good mental health generally have good relationships with others. They can keep the ups and downs of life in perspective and handle ordinary stress. They are able to work and participate in activities they enjoy. They may sometimes get upset or feel sad, but overall they are able to overcome negative emotions.
