  • All your symptoms are most likely because of you panic disorder. These are the exact same symptoms i had when my attacks where at their worst.

    You need to find ways to calm yourself down, including writting down some soothing and affirming thoughts so that you can pull them out when you are having an attack or a hard time and read them outloud to yourself.

    You can also ask your doctor about medication to help you as well.

    GOOD LUCK! and remember YOU CANNOT DIE FROM A PANIC ATTACK

  • Panic and anxiety are the worst feelings in the world, feels like your world is closing in on you. I would see a doctor if you feel out of control like that and see if they can give you some type of medication to balance yourself out.Good Luck
