Your Panic symptoms start at least an hour earlier

Some of my clients report that their panic attacks  seem to hit them out-of-the-blue, without warning signs .  Actually nothing starts out -of-the-blue.   You may not notice some of the panic sensations  but they start way earlier than you think.    Recent studies support that panic attack symptoms start at least an hour prior to the actual full bloom panic attack.   One recent study (Muret, 2011)captured  the changes in respiration, heart rate and other bodily functions an hour prior to the panic attack.
