So this past week i have been really bad. I have had severe panic attacks for 5 years tey stopped getting really bas about 1 year ago. I still get every syptom and still get really panicky however i would only get full panic attacks rarely. However my grandad passed away a week ago and since then i have been extremely bad. All the symptoms and full blown panic attacks have come back. I now cant drive as i feel funny and im scared every second because i cant breathe. Heart palpitations. Missed beats. Short of breath. Tongling. Feel dizzy. Feel like im going to pass ou and so on. I just dont know what to do as i have a 3 month old baby and need to be okay for him. I cant live like this i need help

I'm like this everyday to I hate it and I get no support

Your body and mind is responding to your grandad passing away. You were beginning to calm down as you went almost a year without having severe panic attacks, so do not let the fear get in the way of you this time. Breathe... understand that it will get better again once you recover from the death in your family. Be strong for yourself and your child. I have these symptoms, a lot of us get these symptoms but they do pass.

Also, maybe speak to your doctor. A therapist or If you can, buy some Chamomile w/Lavender tea it works wonders!! It is super calming (and I am not just saying that to give you advertised advice). I go through the same thing and I'm still here to regain my strength everyday. You got this!! Stay strong!

Thank you. I have pure lavender oil which is ment to calm you down but doesnt do anything. How can heart palpitations be normal. Thats my heart and its beating wierd it scares so me much its taking over my life

I totally get it. It's so hard to accept, but fortunately it is "normal" under the circumstances. I had the same questions you have when I speak to my Dr., once I started researching and reading up on the way the body works... it's a it bit more settling. I'm sorry you are going through this, I wish I can be more help but I too struggle. The only thing I know for sure is that you will push through and be okay... even if it doesn't seem like it.

Thank you xx
