Quoting the non-profit American academic medical center Mayo Clinic, De Guzman explained that a panic attack is “a sudden episode of intense fear that triggers severe physical reactions when there is no real danger or apparent cause.”

“Panic attacks can be very frightening. When panic attacks occur, you might think you’re losing control, having a heart attack or even dying,” he added.

He then reminded others that “if you have this, remember, you’ll be ok.”

According to Mayo Clinic, a panic attack can be caused by several factors, namely: genetics; major stress; temperament that is more sensitive to stress or prone to negative emotions; and certain changes in the way parts of your brain function.

De Guzman has always been open regarding his panic disorder and anxiety. In one post in August 2020, he shared with fans that he copes with such attacks by soaking his face, head and hands into a basin of ice and by taking deep breaths.  /ra
