I get it. Sometimes when it hits I get so disoriented, I can't breathe or focus. Pacing till my legs ache is not out of the ordinary for me. It sucks so bad. There are times when I can pull myself out of it with deep breathing or with taking myself out of the situation but it only works if I catch it the at the moment of onset otherwise I get lost. It can feel like drowning. I hope it gets better for you.
I hate that feeling! I get it all the time and it’s worse when u eat something ugh
I get that too. It almost feels like Im choking and i cant get enough air in. Then i start panicking and ill roll down the windows to have the air hit me. I also try the deep breathing or ill do this yoga breathing technique were you hold one side of your nostril with a finger breathe in (then hold the breathe in and release finger and place on the other nostril and then breathe out) repeat. This helps me sometimes and ill do it like 5-10 times. I also kinda of remind myself of what is happening at the moment, and kind of talk myself down. Hope this helps! Hope you feel better
Hi Married2015, as terrible as the feeling is, it is nothing more than tense muscles
which can be calmed down by sipping on something warm to drink that is not caffeinated.
Gently massage the front of your neck to reduce the tightness. Breathe slowly to calm
yourself down. It will release in time. xx
Thank you ! Its still bothering me. I think its after i eat i get super anxious as well. 😥
