    Why isn't a panic attack a cardiovascular exercise?

    The facts, according to science, is prolonged panic attacks will not do any damage to the heart. So a panic attack isn't harmful physically. In which case why can't you consider a panic attack a cardiovascular workout? Medical professionals say to do some activities that increases the heart rate to avoid things like clots, and hardening of the arteries. A panic attack can cause my heart rate to rocket to 150bpm for a good 30 minutes at times. This means my blood pressure increases, my heart is being fast, and my muscles are getting a workout from being tense

    You get what I'm saying?

    I'm pretty sure it was one of your responses to me in the past that caused me to ponder that.
