7. Panic disorder Abstract Panic is a common feature of all anxiety disorders, and other psychological problems too, but it takes centre stage in panic disorder where a person experiences recurrent, unexpected panic attacks, involving four or more of a range of sensations, including palpitations, pounding heart, sweating, trembling, breathlessness, chest pain, dizziness, and fear of dying, losing control, or going crazy. The biological and psychological causes for panic are considered; the success of Cognitive behavioural therapy as treatment indicates a strong psychological cause. Beagle , the 28-year-old Charles Darwin began to experience a number of puzzling and distressing symptoms,
