Strangely, the patients fear that the mental disease will bring on a panic attack, in which case they start their own panic attack, because of this they arise unpredictable and typically in situations that the patient tries to avoid. In short, it is a vicious circle and Overcoming (Understanding panic...) states that it is because of perpetuating factors. There are certain influences that keep the panic process going and even make it worse and more
A panic attack is an unexpected, strong experience of fear joined with an irresistible feeling of threat, escorted by physical symptoms of anxiety. A person with panic disorder may have frequent panic attacks and feel stern anxiety about having another attack (Rosemary Purcell, Paul Maruff, Michael Kyrios, and Christos Pantelis, Arch Gen Psychiatry 1998). The disorder characteristically begins in young adulthood, but older people and children can be involved. Characteristically, a first panic attack appears to come suddenly, occurring as a person is busy in some normal doings like driving a car or walking to work. Unexpectedly, the person is struck by a barrage of scary and painful symptoms.
Having obsessive thoughts and performing their compulsive behaviors can be very time consuming. They interfere with the daily activities that the person with OCD is planning to do. Not only does this affect the individual, it also affects the individual’s family and friends. It dominates a person’s life and can destroy their ability to function normally at school, work, and even at home. A person with OCD may feel ashamed of his/her illness and try to hide it instead of getting treated.

The impact of PD in veterans is usually greater than in any other group. About 2.7% of individuals in a given year will suffer from PD, with occurrence rates of 6.1% to 8.3% among veterans, (Barre... ... middle of paper ... ...hiatry, 54(3), 256-261. doi:http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.comppsych.2012.09.001 Choy, Y.

People who experience panic attacks over a prolonged time period may become victims of agoraphobia, which is a psychiatric disorder that is closely associated with the panic disorder. Patients with Agoraphobia avoid certain places or situations such as airplanes, crowded theaters, a grocery store or anyplace from which escape might be difficult. It is said that Agoraphobia can be so severe that it has made certain individuals housebound. Some people argue that there is a genetic basis for these anxiety disorders. Research shows that there is strong evidence for a genetic basis for anxiety.
Patients with a panic disorder can develop agoraphobia; an irrational fear of large crowds. Phobias are considered a part of anxiety disorders, a phobia is an intense and irrational fear of a certain thing or situation.
