my attacks happen before bedtime and there is a rush like being on a roller coaster and it comes in waves followed by extreme diarrhea. These last 4-5 hours with pacing,shortness of breath and they need for someone to be awake with me. I feel them the worst when I am in a hotel knowing that I am trapped and not being able to pace and the guilt of having to wake someone up to watch me. I want someone to stay awake so I can sleep it's a race to prepare the night and make sure I am 1st to go to bed. I often want to go to a hospital and sit in the waiting room just to know that people are alive. The night attacks are so lonely they intensify the attack.
