Hi I've just joined the group. My first panic attack was several years ago. I thought I was having a stroke and I was going to die. Burning sensation rising up my body, heart racing, dizzy, couldn't breath and my legs shaking uncontrollably. I had no idea what was going on. I ended up going to A&E and thankfully I was ok. That didn't stop me worrying that I was seriously ill though! I constantly checked my pulse, and googled every illness possible. Eventually my anxiety got better and I thought I was cured. However, the other day I had a panic. That weird burning sensation in my chest that spreads across the body, shaking, palpitations, hot, nauseous and dizzy and pins and needles. I knew it was anxiety but my mind keeps trying to tell me it's a heart condition!! My face goes numb and I feel like I won't be able to talk. I'm hoping it settles down again. Anxiety is such a horrible condition 😞
