Zusammenfassung

In allgemeinärztlichen, internistischen und neurologischen Praxen ersuchen oft Patienten um Behandlung, die über anfallsweise auftretende körperliche Symptome wie Herzrasen, Atemnot, Brustschmerz oder Schwindelgefühle klagen, ohne daβ sich eine organische Ursache dieser Beschwerden feststellen läβt. Die körperlichen Symptome sind in der Regel von starker Angst um die körperliche oder seelische Gesundheit begleitet. Andere Patienten suchen Psychiater oder Psychologen auf und klagen über Angstzustände, die sie überraschend und scheinbar ohne Grund in vielen Situationen wie beim Autofahren, beim Einkäufen in Kaufhäusern, beim Besuch öffentlicher Veranstaltungen oder beim Alleinsein überfallen. Obwohl die Patienten körperlich gesund sind, leben sie in der ständigen Angst, in einer dieser Situationen in Ohnmacht zu fallen, an einem Herzinfarkt zu sterben oder ein ähnliches Schicksal zu erleiden.
