hi mimi, hope u well. i did few times thinking it is my heart which then they did ECG test and they said it is normal. this was before i knew that these are anxiety/panic attacks. it is awful waiting with all those people for few hours waiting for a nurse to call your name and feel some compassion as i am shaking from fear!!! ahhh hated it.

are you ok hun??

Just having a few bad days ideally don't know what to do anymore plus the phobia of meds! I'm just so sick I don't know what to do! Sorry for being so down.

why you are sorry for love, we all feel the same from time to time, sometimes we try to cheer up and crack a smile sometimes we just can't help it.

just remember:

Hope will give birth to Joy in the heart :)

big hug

i am here mimi to check on you, so whatever you need, it is probably better off if you go to a park and walk for sometime and maybe listen to some relaxing music while walking.

if not go to the kitchen and bake something that takes few hours from your time, something complicated that you never done before and you fancy, that will engage your brain and you will have a cake for tea :) cheer up hun

i will check on you every now and then

Hi mimi. Yes over the number of years i have had them i have been quite regular. We have fairly decent days but some we feel so breathless were not even sure ourselves if it is down to panic or not, so off we go. It will get easier honest. xx

HI, Yes, I went once when I really didn't know how to cope. I was seen to straight away and as soon as they said the readings were OK, I felt relieved. I've never been back since as that was quite a bad attack so I think if I was OK then, I will be OK now.

Hope you're OK.

Thank all of you for answering my question I just get so embarrassed especially because of the phobia of meds! I really thought I'm just going to go but didn't stayed in my room an slept most of the day! I hate this so much I even told my doc an therapist to have me admitted an they said no because they would force meds on me. Thanks again have a blessed evening!!! I don't even know what time it is there you are the sweetest bunch of people and so kind !!!

yes i've been to a&e once a few months back with my anxiety..i thought i as having a heart attack but turns out it was just a panic attack. I actually went to the out of hours doctors surgery at the hospital first as i had been going there quite a lot with "health problems" i thought i had (anxiety again) and i came out feeling more anxious as they weren't reassuring. So i got halfway home and turned the car round and went straight to a&e. There was actually a queue for the ECG machine :/ so had to wait a bit to get checked over. They did the ECG, bloods and sent me for an xray and all came back normal. the nurses were great but the doctor i saw was a bit arsy with me and made me feel a bit stupid but when i found out everything was ok it literally felt like a weight had been lifted of my chest. x

I hope you are feeling a little better now...when I first started with panic attacks a long time ago , we used to send for the GP to come out. Needless to say my GP was always being called as I thought I was on my last legs and going to die. I had never even heard of Panic attacks or anxiety! and was amazed when it was suggested and diagnosed. Unbelievable!! but I'm still here to tell the tale lol xx

Thank you yes feeling better it can be very frightening at times just wish they would stop! Have a blessed day. xx

Yes twice with what turned out to be panic attacks but I must say that I did have a heart attack two yrs ago nothing to do with the panic or anxiety symptoms i have and I've got to say the panic attack symptoms I had FELT worse than the heart attack I'm assuming you maybe had chest pain or breathing problems or some other what you thought were life threatening symptoms if you worry about your health a lot have a word with your dr it maybe health anxiety and he'll get you tested to help reassure you I've had them a long time because didn't get help you get some help and reassurance good luck to you wishing you well....Mel
