5. Abdominal discomfort or nausea
During episodes of panic attacks, many patients describe nausea or abdominal symptoms, including abdominal pain and stomach cramps. The gastrointestinal system is closely related to brain function, and these two organs are closely related to each other. For this reason, various mental health problems are associated with abdominal discomfort and ailments of the gastrointestinal tube.
Patients with panic attack are often diagnosed with gastrointestinal pathology, including inflammatory bowel disease or irritable bowel syndrome. Their symptoms may continue for a very long time depending on the disease, but they are often aggravated during panic attack episodes. Patients with no underlying gastrointestinal cause might also feel these symptoms, but they are usually limited to the acute phase of the episode.
