I have had 3 panic attacks in the last few days and they were very scary indeed. My symptoms are a feeling of dread and dizziness coming over me which causes me to panic - I am thinking I wiill pass out and die. My heart beats faster and I try and breathe deeper, and it then starts to ease. The attacks seem to eminate from my groin area for some reason. I find my thoughts of feeling anxious only make it worse so when it happens I try desperately to think of something or someone nice to help calm me. I don't know why I am suddenly having these attacks. It can happen anywhere. Today I was in a large shopping centre sitting down and having a drink when I suddenly starting getting the early symptoms. I got up and walked around and it eased. I don't know whether I should consult my GP or whether there is anything I can do to stop these attacks happening. Any advice appreciated.
