We often find the following signs:

  • Palpitations, tachycardia
  • Sweat
  • Tremors or sometimes even muscle twitches
  • Feeling of breathlessness, choking, strangulation
  • Chest pains
  • Nausea, abdominal pain, vomiting
  • Feeling dizzy, headless, feeling fainting, unwell
  • Feeling of depersonalization (as detached from oneself)
  • Feeling of intense and inexplicable fear
