Social Anxiety and Shyness Links Social Anxiety Shyness Info - Social Anxiety Disorder Panic Attacks

Panic attack, that dramatic expression of anxiety, occurs in many disorders and has some peculiarities valuable as references to the diagnosis. In the case of Social Anxiety Disorder / Social Phobia, for example, the frequency of the attacks indicates the degree of the disorder. Greater frequency is associated with a greater number of stimuli that are able to induce the crisis. At the same time, it indicates the greater susceptibility of the person to such stimuli.

The second important point refers to whether or not it occurs in Shyness. You will see that many people, even professionals, consider the panic attack an expression of severe Shyness. Others do not. Indeed it is not, because Shyness is not a disorder. It is not classified as an illness, and panic attacks indicate the maximum severity of the anxiety in any situation. Then panic attacks indicate that the person suffers from Social Anxiety Disorder / Social Phobia, not Shyness.

The third point is a singular question related to Panic Disorder and Social Anxiety Disorder / Phobia Disorder. It is common to describe panic attacks in Social Anxiety / Social Phobia Disorder and in Panic Disorder with the same signs and symptoms. However, the two panics have differences. For example: in Panic Disorder the person feels as though he is having a heart attack or a stroke; in the Social Anxiety Disorder the central need for the person is to get away from the social situation.

 

In the end, you must keep in mind that a panic attack is not synonymous with Panic Disorder.
