Symptoms consist of heart palpitations, shortness of breath, sweating, dizziness, upset stomach and fear of dying or losing control.

Since the attacks are very frightening, many patients start to avoid situations in which the attacks have occurred, such as driving on an expressway or over bridges, shopping in large department stores or malls, etc. Agoraphobia is the term for such avoidance, which in severe cases can lead to being completely housebound.
