If we knew the answer to that question Mike we wouldn't be here on the forum. We'd be all out making a living as shrinks. Panic attacks can about in various ways. With me it used to be a change in things like sound. If it was quiet and got loud, or loud and got quiet. Were it seemed like it was hitting me for no reason, when I looked more closely I found a reason. So they are not just coming from nowhere. There is something triggering them. Finding out what is what we want to know. And at times can be the hardest part of all. A lot of people keep journals of when they panic and it can help find the cause. The thoughts that were going through your mind when the panic attack hit. Your reaction. Etc, etc. The mood. To try and find a pattern. And more often than not one can be found. When we do look that much closer and deeper. As it stands you probably panic and are just glad when it passes and then try and forget all about it. This is more like the reverse of that. You want to know everything about it. To see is there any one thing that is always present. Be it just a thought or a noise or even a certain place. Can be hard to try and understand why they kick in. Bit like having a head full of questions and no answers.
