Worst panic attack

I woke up yesterday with tight breathing I worried about it and decided to go to the doctors. On my way their I got pins and needils in my hands and as I got their all he'll broke loose. I couldn't breath I went numb my heart was goin a million miles a hour. I thought I was going to die! She gave me a bag but all I could think about was the intense wave after wave of panic and adrenalin shooting in my chest. She said your having a severe panic attack but that oversaly didn't help matters. It took me 45 mins to finally calm down abit. I felt on edge all day and I've just had 3 more mini attacks in the night. I'm worried and upset that it's getting worse. Especially at night :( has anyone else had this? X

Sorry to read of your anxiety.

I can sympathise as I too have been a shaking mess unable to think straight due to it on a good few occasions.

Nights are the worst for me too. I'd love to go to bed, have a deep uninterrupted sleep and wake up refreshed in the morning but it's been many years since that happened.


Yeh I feel the same. A few months ago I looked forward to sleep as it was the only time I could relax but now it's like it's shifted the opposite. Luckily I get full blown panic attacks every so often. It's just the waves of nervous energy all day it's like I'm on the edge all of the time.

I'm sorry about that horrible panic attack you suffered how are you feeling today? X


Feeling better than. Yesterday. Woke up a few times in the night with panic and feel tired but I practised deep breathing when I felt bad and it seems to help. :) it's just hard to accept I'm having them every day and not knowing why x
