How do you tell a panic attack from a flashback? I'm not sure if full visual shifts are required for it to be considered a flashback, but I'm having issues differentiating.

Flashbacks and panic attacks can manifest differently for different people. Flashbacks often involve intrusive thoughts or memories, which can be just as debilitating as a full visual shift back to the traumatic event. They don't always trigger a panic attack but can disrupt your day and put you in a weird headspace. Panic attacks, on the other hand, often feel like you can't breathe and might give you a feeling of dying. Anxiety during these attacks can become overwhelming to the point where it's hard to handle.
