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.

  • Hello,I'm new to the forums and have a few questions related to Klonopin. I was prescribed 0.5 mg for panic attacks that have worsened since I've entered menopause. My main triggers are driving in bad traffic, being over-scheduled, work stress, and rushing.

  • Hi, I'm new here and don't even know if I'm having panic attacks. My dad suffered a lot last year and passed away at the hands of some extremely cruel doctors and nurses (because we have universal healthcare here and they're cutting costs like crazy). I believe they murdered him through deprivation of water and food (he was crying for this) and numerous shots of morphine till he could no longer...
  • Hi Everyone,I have been having a history of panic attacks for about 10 years but after the one I had today I figured it was time to find support as not many people understand what I go through. I had my first panic attack while driving one night about 10 years ago and I thought I was dying of a brain tumor or stroke. I drove straight to the hospital ER and stayed there most of the night while...

    This week has been .. really hard for me. I did a lot of panic attacks, i didn't sleep well, made a lot of nightmares. I hope it will end soon.
  • I know it is a little bit silly question but have a problem and didn't see a doctor and talk about it with anyone. When I am upset or face with an event that makes me feel unhappy or shocked, I suddenly start to feel so cold (even if when the weather is hot) and shake. I cannot control my shaking and cannot keep myself warm. Is this a panic attack?
  • OKAY here's my problem. My sister is my main security... but she HATES it.. she is very active and can't be tied down.. never answers the phone etc. She tries... but will never understand. My friend who is always a backup and typically is always around has become a great source of comfort. BUT... she is going away tomorrow for a MONTH to visit her son. I DON'T KNOW HOW TO HANDLE THIS... it's...
  • I think that I may be experiencing panic attacks and I am scared out of my mind. I went to the ER twice for heart palpitations, chest pain, trouble breathing, feeling like I was about to pass out, tingling on the left side of my face and left arm, and weakness. They took X-rays of my chest, blood work, and did an ultrasound of my heart not to mention many EKGs. They all came back perfectly...
