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.

    Panic attacks without symptoms of fear/anxiety?

    2
    I've been feeling strange lately and have had two episodes of what seems to match up with panic attacks but I haven't had symptoms of fear or intense anxiety characteristic of panic attacks I've had in the past. Both times I kept losing track of my thoughts and was dissociating, which might have led to reduced sensory information, but I was wondering whether or not anyone else has had similar...

    Horrible panics, feel like I can't breathe, throat is tense, body shakes, dizziness and confusion and more and I don't know what to do about it.
  • My nightmares started around the time Nan got sick. They would always start the same way I was always running from someone or something and would always end with me falling off of something. I would wake up in a panic, sweating, shaking, hyperventilating, heart pounding and tears running down my face. The more Nans cancer progressed the more frequent the nightmares became it got so bad that i...

    My attacks

    Most of my attacks happen at church. I feel overwhelmed by how awful I am and how I don't belong there.  I feel loved there but also so ashamed (my own thoughts, nothing my church does) it's hard and I feel so sad.

    Hello

    Hello! I am new to the group. Like all or most of you, I live with panice attacks. I have, thankfully, learned to do most of the things I want to do despite the attacks, but I have never been able to make them go away. I hate having them. No amount of experience seems to improve how terrible they feel. Whenever I have one, I also always feel so humilitated and wonder if people can tell there is...

    Prozac

    Prozac just increased from 10 mg, on this for 2 weeks, to 20 mg for the last 3 days. Take Zyprexa too which that helped with the mania. I have been on 5 different meds to get stable. How long until the depression goes away with adding the Prozac?

    While at work today, I had another panic attack. Normally my attacks are at home and in private, but the last few days they've been in public. Luckily, where I work there is a stock room and I have a legitimate excuse to go back there (Usually I'm doing a task that needs to be handled within 24 hours) and so I can go back there while I work and freak out. No one at work has seen me have an...

    My first

    2
    My first panic attack was at my first concert (due to claustrophobia, which I found out I had then and there)(and btw we saw The 1975) I was enjoying it until the crowd pushed. Then, as my friend was jumping around and singing with the crowd, I stood silently. I couldn't breathe nor could I talk. I felt really warm and I was shaking. And, at first I didnt realize it but after a while, I was...

Just started therapy and I'm also taking Elavil.Lately I've been having attacks more severe than ever (I've had a lot of major life...
