Screening Tool: Panic Disorder
This survey is designed to provide a quick assessment of whether you might have problems with panic attacks, a particular type of anxiety. However, no test is 100% accurate. No matter what your score is, you should seek help from a health professional if you have any concerns about yourself or your loved ones.
The questionnaire used here is the two question Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) Questionnaire, developed by Dr. Murray B. Stein and colleagues.
