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.

    Freaking Out Over Nothing

       I keep having panic attacks every time I even think about going to my dad's house. I don't mind my dad's but for some reason it freaks me out and sends me into an immediate panic attack. I don't know what to do to cope with it or control it long enough to stay at my dad's.

    Trying to figure things out.

    Im new, still getting used to anxiety/depression being a part of life. I had a panic attack today, but in those moments I often forget it's a panic attack, and feel like it's something so much worse.. It's the worst feeling :( learning to breathe, colour, take care of myself but it's pretty isolating.. Anyone have any other things that help?

  • Hi - I'm also new here :-)  I'm new to panic/anxiety so I am going to post everything that happened to me in the last 4 months as I don't understand what is happening to me and I am from an area where this is not a common issue. For some reason I had my first panic attack ever 4 months ago (happened a week or 2 after I strained a stomach/core/chest muscle during a sports exercise).  It...

    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. I'm now 21 and am still struggling with anxiety and panic. I was on zoloft for awhile and it kept the anxiety and panic away but I felt like a total zombie so I went off of it. Now that I'm off, the panic is back. I also just started my...

    I need help

But this year I find myself having panic attacks all the time now, I'm constantly leaving the classroom now. I think it may have to do with my step-dad getting out of jail soon but that's not...

    Non-Epileptic Seizures

    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...
