HANOVER, VA (WWBT) - Extreme stress can lead to panic attacks. That is something Dr. Aisha Alsam is helping her patients with at Primary Health Group - Montpelier.
Much like migraines and stress, panic attacks can be triggered by things such as alcohol and stimulants like caffeine and cocaine.
You can reduce the number or severity of panic attacks by getting-regular exercise, enough sleep and eating regularly scheduled meals.
Panic attacks often include chest pain, dizziness, fear of dying, and trembling in the hands and feet.
