What's the weirdest panic attack symptom you have ever witnessed?

Let's see how many crazy odd symptoms we have all experienced... It might help us sometime if we encounter a new one to remember that it is indeed part of anxiety. I seem to encounter a new symptom each time I panic.

Mine weirdest one happened today. After a Sudden surge of anxiety, my scalp started to burn like it was on fire. It started back at my neck and worked its way forward. It went away after 5 minutes.

What is your weirdest symptom?

Numbness of one side of my body. Face and everything. I think that's one of the weirdest but I've had actually that many I don't even know anymore ! X

Everything I ever get checked out always seems to be anxiety I cry a lot when I visit the walk in etc because it's so frustrating hearing the same sentence "it's just anxiety" x
