Hi everyone, this is my first post. On Friday I had a panic attack and since then have not felt normal. I have felt constantly heightened since. My chest feels really tight, I can feel my heart beating through my body. I got an ECG done at the hospital and they said it was fine, they still wanted me to wait in the ER but I couldn’t cope being around all the people so I just went home. I feel fine mentally but my chest and these, I’m assuming palpitations, are so annoying. It’s not painful it’s just constant. The only time when I’m okay is when I’m asleep. I wake up with a heavy feeling in my chest and I go to sleep with it. In other people’s experiences, have you had an anxiety attack that lasted this many days or is this something else? My anxiety keeps making me google it which doesn’t help! It’s also important to note that I have had a complete loss of appetite. I felt this way since before the panic attack and even had some vomiting happening. On Saturday after the panic attack I had diarrhoea all day and a bit of vomiting. Can someone please offer any advice or experiences? I’m so scared I’m always going to feel this way.
