The symptoms of Anxiety may include:

  • Nervousness about a specific problem
  • Racing heartbeat
  • Sweating

These symptoms can also be found in someone who suffers from Panic Attacks.

But someone who is having a Panic Attack, as opposed to Anxiety, may also experience:

  • Crippling terror
  • The feeling of eminent catastrophe
  • The feeling of losing control
  • The fear of going insane
