Panic disorder is an anxiety disorder where a person experiences repeated panic attacks. Intense physical sensations of anxiety are experienced and their mind tells them they are in danger and that they are for example going to die, have a heart attack or suffocate.
When a person experiences panic attacks they start to avoid situations where they might occur, becoming frightened of having an attack. This avoidance can lead to Agoraphobia where the person avoids certain places because of a fear of having a panic attack and not being able to escape the situation. This may eventually keep the person from going out at all.
