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?

I've got health anxiety.. I'm always panicking about something happening to me! When it happens I feel my heart racing.. But I quickly try and calm myself down by having some water of something! It's horrible xx

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..
