Panic from PTSD
Panic = Intense Fear.
Panic Attack = panic +4 or more Symptoms.
Panic Attack Syndrome = chronic panic attacks.
Panic isn't necessarily hysterical behavior or losing control. Fear doesn't always show, and neither does panic. Some people train themselves to seem "normal". They might even believe they are "normal"
Being "Normal" Having PTSD from untreated trauma is normal. If you went through all that without trauma, you'd have to be a robot.
I used to think my panic was only stress. I thought everybody felt like I did. I hid my feelings very well. That's good up to a point, but it blocked me from getting help, and it created misunderstandings.
