So I'm 18, finished college and supposedly have no worries in my life but I've now had 2 panic attacks on consecutive weekends and ever since then I've been scared to go to bed. My first panic I happened to be drunk and have nearly a complete blackout in my memory, however my second I was completely sober trying to sleep and I suddenly felt like my heart was stopping and I was going to die. I'd been struggling to breathe for the last few days and have struggled ever since. (I am asthmatic but only very mildly).
I had an ambulance come to the house but the paramedics said everything was fine and I'd just had a panic attack and it would wear off soon.
But ever since I have been terrified to go to sleep. I have better days but most nights I feel so anxious and tight chested and sick, I get indigestion and chest pains etc. and I normally can't fall asleep until I'm physically too exhausted to stay awake. I'm also much worse at my boyfriends house where I had both attacks but obviously can't avoid staying there.
I try to distract myself but it's a lot easier said than done and I feel exhausted. Help?
