Sometimes I get mild hallucinations when I panic

I'm having a bad panic attack right now and it feels like the room is shrinking, some objects look to big and some look too small. Everything is too colorful. I feel overstimulated. Like I just want to curl up under a blanket and close my eyes. And I also have this sense of impending doom like I'm in some  sort of terrible danger. I just started a new medication. :c and I'm getting close to my period, which amplifies my anxiety and derealisation x1000000. I can't grasp any thoughts or remember anything. Everything feels like a dream. Ugh, how can I do anything when I feel like this?

Sometimes when I'm driving I feel like the world is shrinking and going to fall down on me. It's so weird and scary but I think I can relate to some parts of your post.

Sadly, I think that the only thing you can do is ride it out until it's over. Make sure you are somewhere safe, breathe slow and deep, I also try talking myself down, where I tell myself in my head, that it's all right, just breathe, calm down, it's not real.....

But I'm not a Dr, just another sufferer. So, if you haven't already, why not see your GP, as a prescription might help. Good luck.
