I have only had one panic attack, but I am still dealing with some issues that arouse from the horrible experience. The panic attack woke me up from my sleep and I thought I was having a heart attack. I am 21 years old so the idea that my heart was giving out made me panic even more as it would not be a common medical issue for someone at my age. I ended up calling 911 on myself because I thought I was going to die. This panic attack happened about three months ago. I have only recently realized that it was not the tight chest or the racing heart that terrified me, but it was the idea that I truly believed I was dying alone and losing my mind. When I have feelings that remind me of my attack, I realize it is my fear of experiencing that trauma again. I am just wondering if anyone else has felt this way and how they deal with those feelings.
