Some people even feel as if they're dying when they're experiencing a panic attack.
Suffice to say, those are pretty terrifying symptoms. But, just like there are plenty of ways people experience panic attacks, there are also a lot of ways to get through them. Read on for advice from 12 people on getting through a panic attack.
