All that you should know about Anxiety Attack
There is a huge misconception that panic attack and anxiety attack are the same. A panic attack is the sudden start of genuine fear or burden that accomplishes a best inside minutes and fuses no under four of the going with signs: Palpitations, pulsating heart, or animated heartbeat.

What Are The Treatments For Anxiety Attack
For the treatment for an anxiety attack, you can either consult a clinical psychologist or a psychiatrist. But blending both is better. In case the patient is not ready to visit and there are certain things which you can do:
Keep reassuring them completely. (It might be about anything that bothers them).
Keep them in the loop of your life.
You need to keep a check on what triggers their anxiety.
Just be there. (Doesn’t matter on call or in person if you are close to the patient just let your emotional support be there).
I have suggested these above 4 things from my personal experience. I am a severe anxiety prone person and I exactly know how terrible it feels. It doesn’t even take a second to have an anxiety attack. Maybe that is why I keep a distance from everyone. It kills when anyone walks away from you. Even a little change in the other person’s (who means something to you) behaviour affects a lot.
Take Care, Stay safe.
