(picture is to cheer me up and maybe you too!)
Sorry just a quick rant. I finally have an ENT referral after 2 years of trying to tell the doctor that my panic attacks are brought on by nose bunging up/throat bunging up, not the other way round. Nurse at GPs told me I am inflamed, and what with sinus pain etc has referred me. So that's good. And despite a v stressful work week I coped fine, fending off panicky feelings when aircon/spicy food set off my sinuses/throat.
So v annoying when last night I had the waking without breath again, everything constricted, heart thundering, hard to get in enough air and everything sore and inflamed. Took ages to get back to sleep around 4am.
Then today in sainsbury's just started feeling the same thing, got so I was light headed with not getting in enough air, which made me start to panic again. I had my young child with em so had to pretend it was all fine. Hubby home now so am taking five mins to write this because I know I am not alone but it is hard to remember that when you feel like you're having a heart attack/asthma attack or whatever the hell these weird things are.
Just frustrating when I am actually feeling calm in myself, but the sinus pain, chest and back pain etc etc have all not gone away. V hard to believe this is all in my head when you can see swollen throat/tonsils etc.
Right. Rant over. Hope everyone else is having/has had a good day. I have coped and I will cope because I have to, and so now I have to go and do dinner. I will be fine.
