I feel for anyone who gets panic attacks - unless you've had them nobody knows just hw bad they can get - I used to think I was gonna die with every one I had. I also couldnt swallow - couldnt breathe and it was horrible. My doctor told me to cool my pulse points when an attack was coming on - ice where possible on the wrists worked good - it shocks the system into working again. If theres no ice shove your wrists under a cold running tap for a few minutes. In case of emergency I used to carry a small spray can of water in my bag (Evian sell it or magicool is good). Spray on your face and pulse points and it stops the attack. Good luck and hope you soon get over the attacks xx

I have been having heart palpitations at night for the past 2 weeks that wake me up out of my sleep. For the past 2 weeks I have been living on no sleep because of this and it is miserable. I have had anxiety issues in the past, but I really feel as though this is different. When sleeping I kind of feel like I "forget to breathe" and get a heart palpitation just when I'm about to doze off. I had heart palpitations 2 years ago and went to a cardiologist in which the doctor did many tests and found nothing abnormal. I have competed in athletics my entire life and am a seemingly healthy 23 year old female.
For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
