Panic disorder is an anxiety disorder marked by sudden and intense panic attacks that involve both psychological and physical symptoms, including increased heart rate, chest pain, breathing difficulties and fear. People with panic disorder may feel as if they are “going crazy” or “having a heart attack” during a panic attack because the symptoms are so intense and disorienting.
