2. Are There Different Types of Panic Disorder?

Panic disorder is a singular disorder in the sense that there are usually not different types of panic attacks, though patients’ triggers, causes, and timing of the attacks vary. However, there are several disorders, such as PTSD, that can include panic attacks as part of the diagnosis.

Other types of anxiety that are similar to panic disorder are generalized anxiety disorder, obsessive-compulsive disorder, and social anxiety disorder. While these patients often have panic attacks, they may not qualify for a true PD diagnosis due to the infrequent pattern of their attacks.
