Integration of EMDR and CBT techniques in the treatment of panic disorder with agoraphobia - A case report

Description

Panic disorder is a term reserved for a panic attack with a sudden onset in its earliest stages, which is not conditioned by a particular situation or position. There is a widespread belief that a panic attack is a symptom of a more serious condition, such as a cardiologic one. A panic attack encompasses a sudden appearance of four or more aforementioned medical and physical symptoms that are characteristic of major anxiety; high heart rate, shortness of breath or choking sensation, chest tightness or pain, shivering and twitching, alternating sensation of coldness and warmth, perspiration, pallor, dizziness, feelings of fatigue and mild migraine, nausea and gastrointestinal symptoms, sharp pain or numbness of limbs, a threatening fear of loss of physical control, threatening fear of „madness“, feeling of dissociation and derealization, and sensation of impending demise.
