Panic attack while eating dinner

What the heck.. I was eating dinner and out of nowhere my heart started racing because the food was spicy and my anxiety thought I was having an allergic reaction because I couldn't feel my mouth. I knew it was just the food but it was to late. My panic attack got the best of me and I thought I was going to have to go to the hospital. Why does this happen out of nowhere? Why can't I calm myself? This is so frustrating. I will literally be sitting on the couch doing nothing and my brain thinks I'm in danger and freaks out. Ugh. Can anyone relate?? 😕

It feels like it lasts forever. Sometimes I think I'm actually going to die 😕 it is very scary. I wish I could control them better.

Thankfully mines are quick I just switch my mind and start looking at my phone and distracting . I think everyone suffers from this type of stuff. God only knows why try switching your mind set when it happens that's what works for me. But yeah it's a very scary feeling like mines feel like the world is dropping on me really strange heavy 😱 feeling :( .
