I suffer from panic attacks but don t get them often. I am not sure if this is a panic attack because it seemed scarier than ever. I woke up about midnight because it was a bit stuffy and my allergies were bothering me causing my breathing to be uncomfortable. I got up to use the bathroom and got really shaky and my heart was beating fast. I felt a bit of indigestion also. I went and grabbed a mint, and a sip of orange juice because some times I get hypoglycemic. I just started feeling worse and worse. Heart pounding. Couldn t get a deep breath, really shaky. I had to go outside and get some air and just walked around trying to calm down and almost started dialing my cell to 911....about 5 minutes I started to feel myself calming down....my heart getting back to normal, got a deep breath in....now I feel relaxed. Was that a major anxiety attack? Another thing I noticed is my mouth went completely dry. When I started calming down, it went back to normal.

Ive been eating healthy foods but still have tumy problems, either constipation or the opposite. every now and again I get a harsh burning sensation in my chest and armpits as though iv got deep heat rubed on my lungs, usualy just as i get into bed thats the only way i can describe it. my breathing is okay but when i feel sick the whole time i tend to start breathing shallow. what should i do?

Hi I m 45 years old a smoker, this week I have had my heart beat faster and skip a beat when I check. It started on Thurs. at work it lasted about 10min mid day then again late that night as I was sitting and relaxing. the next couple of days it started again while sitting and getting ready to eat and just after drinking water it seems to be lasting a little longer each time. does the skip of a beat damage your heart, cause it stress? I have read that stress brings it along is there anything you can do to help calm this down
