So many people suffer from Panic attacks some point in their life! You are defiantly not alone!!
Last year, I got to a low stage and was having up to eight a day, on bad days of which would last around 30 minutes to an hour. I've had a few this past week too. One I've had recently, left me passed out for around an hour. I was at home on my own and my mum found me on the floor. For me panic attacks make me hyperventilate, my heart rushes, Ill start to burn up. My body will go tingly and then its like I go numb, and ill feel dizzy and start to struggle to stay awake and on occasions, have passed out.
You don't have to do it on your own. Hopefully its just a phase and it will pass. However, if it carries on for a while, you can always speak to your doctor for help with it. He will be able to help you.
I'm wondering if there is something which could be triggering it? Maybe its something to think about.
Hope this helps.
