Hello, so i have been wondering what a panic attack really is and if it is different from an anxiety attack?
What happens to me is that i suddenly feel like something going upwards through my whole body and its really uncomfortable, i get shaky and sweaty hands and im usually pretty sure im going to faint. My way of getting out is talking to someone (literally anyone, if im on the bus it could be a complete stranger) about anything like weather or smth like that to get myself out of my head. Afterwards when everything has passed i just get this really intense "need" to cry. Is that a panic attack?
