Hi I was just wondering has anyone ever had a really bad panic attack? And I mean a really,really bad one :evil: The type where you think your going to die or you think your going totally insane because of SA/SP? I myself Have experienced a few panic attacks that were very bad. One of them or my first one,was in the middle of a very busy and crowded Macdonalds restaurant at the age of 13 Another one was on a crowded train And my last one was last summer when I thought I heard a couple of girls the same age as take the piss out of me when I was walking outside to carry out an errand. I just blocked it out of my mind until I got home and then I totally lost it I had another full blown panic attack which came on unexpectedly and completely out of the blue Suddenly I couldn't breath I was hyperventilating and gasping for breath,I felt extremely dizzy and light-headed infact so much so, that I thought I would actually faint or pass out 8O Also add to that the other symptom of my heart beating faster than a drum and I also felt my head was going to explode because of the pressure :x Has anyone else had a similar experience? If so what triggered it off and did you have the same symptoms as I experienced?
