Question What Happens to You When You Have a Panic Attack?

What Happens to You When You Have a Panic Attack?

I'm just curious about how you experience panic attacks? What symptoms do you have? How do you feel? Anything else you think might be important, like what triggers your panic attacks? Just curious....

I get heart palpitations, my whole body shakes, I break out into a cold sweat and my stomach churns. My mind is filled with an impending sense of doom. If it's really bad, I breathe very shallowly.

Thanks for telling me about it. I'm sure it must be awful!

I have had a panic attack about a week ago, but mine was very different. I had flashing colors before my eyes and kept passing in and out of consciousness. I did not know what was happening to me, so I called 911. They took me to the H. where I was diagnosed with "Anxiety." Yes, I had, had anxiety all day long before the fawning attack, but this was way more than "anxiety!" I read up on panic attacks and they did say on one website that it can take the form of "flashing colors before your eyes and fainting," so that was how I finally came to understand what happened to me. I also had a feeling of doom to some degree too. So I can relate to that!

Oh well, I tried to find that website now, but could not. I know I made a note of it somewhere, I just have to find it!
