Is this panick attacks?

I've only ever had 1 panic attack when all this started about 3 months ago I felt like I needed to go hospital but I didn't my sister calmed me down and told me what was happening.. I've noticed since Boxing Day I keep choking on air? Like I can't swollow and then I feel myself burning up when I calm myself down I'm okay again.. Happens at least 2 times everyday?

  • Hi. What you described has the sound of a panic attack. However, it is possible that there is a physical basis causing your reaction. If you have not already done so, it might be a good idea to consult with your doctor. Just explain your symptoms in the same way you have done here - dont leave anything out, even if you think it is trivial. They need all the information possible so that you get the correct diagnosis and treatment. I hope you feel better soon..
