Panic Attacks Support Group

A panic attack is a period of intense fear or discomfort, typically with an abrupt onset and usually lasting no more than thirty minutes. Symptoms include trembling, shortness of breath, heart palpitations, sweating, nausea, dizziness, hyperventilation, and sensations of choking or smothering. Panic attacks can be very sudden, appear to be unprovoked, and are often disabling.

    Hi all, I'm new to the site and just looking to chat with other people that understand what I'm going through. I first started having panic attacks when I was 15.

Now that I'm off, the panic is back. I also just started my...

    Instead of me having panic attacks I have what is called Non-Epileptic Seizures. What triggers my seizures are children's high pitch noises, them talking and when people give other people attention. Professionals think I have these seizures because of my PTSD from being in a Russian orphanage when I was younger. I never got much attention from the care givers in the orphanage and there were...
