I have a fear of thunder(IDK its weird I know. I'm perfectly fine with lightning but thunder gets to me) And I sometimes get short of breath or my chest feels really tight right under my breasts before/during a storm I hate it.

Aw sweetie, that's a panic attack. I know them very well. I take lexapro to help me. You might wanna look into it or something else. unless you're preggers then you'll need to wait til after the baby. I'm here to talk if you need to! it usually helps to talk during a panic attack because it keeps you distracted.

It isn't a panic attack..(I get them a lot.) it feels MUCH different than one its The shortness of breath is  usually to do with my asthma and its like a tightness not like i cant breath or move or anything but more like someone is taking a knife and inserting it in me and twisting it tightening the muscles..its odd cuz it doesnt hurt but it like makes my chest and stomach really tensed so it does at the same time.

It might be a mix of a panic attack and the stress of the fear. I know when I'm stressed it feels like I'm being stabbed in the chest sometimes...

I rarely get panic attacks during storms. and when i do its when the power goes out for more than a few seconds and so i'm sitting in the dark just listening to the storm..

oh god thats the worst. I was really sick after I had my daughter and had like constant panic attacks and like it was when the power would go out cuz of the serges cuz it was so cold. Id flip out when the power went out for a long time at night..I'm glad my mom was there to take care of my daughter when I couldn't cuz I was so scared.
