Panic Attack (Anxiety Attack) Symptoms; 10 Most Common Symptoms

7. Numbness in extremities

Patients with panic attacks often feel tingling or numbness in their extremities. They are most often in a given part of the extremities, but they are also common in the face and other areas of the body. It may be caused by a circulatory change, a transient alteration to the nervous system, or a combination of both. Therefore, a good idea to improve this symptom would be to massage the affected area and move around your body to improve blood circulation. Sometimes, these areas feel completely frozen, and this may raise serious concern in patients who are led to believe they are having an episode of stroke when symptoms are located in one half of the body.
