Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

Panic attacks are due to molecular disturbances (in medical term known as neurotransmitters disequilibrium) in the brain. It is due to some stress or some time normally seen in type A personality or many times it is associated with people with migraine. It cannot be seen in the CT scan or MRI. It can be seen in a special type of MRI brain but it is used only for research purpose only in this time. Might be in future it will be available for routine clinical use.

Now we will discuss clinical part. Panic attacks can be controlled easily with simple medications courses 1 to 2 months course for each clusters with proper mind relaxing exercises and Yoga Pranayam.
