Hi,

Diagnosing a panic attack yourself is not a good idea considering the symptoms you are having.

It is better, I recommend going to the hospital soon to clarify whether you actually have a panic attack or some heart problem.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Sameer Maheshwari, Cardiologist

I have panic attacks that are disabling. I first thought they were heart problems until I went to the hospital and had blood work done as well as a stress test. I need to find a doctor in the state of Indiana who is willing to prescribe appropriate medication. I have been on a variety of agents such as SSRI s, tricyclics, buspar,& others. none helped my anxiety attacks except benzodiazepines - at different times since I was 19 yrs old I have been prescribed valium, Librium, clonopin, tranxene, Xanax, & Ativan. can you help?

I was wondering if I am still having anxiety attack? At roughly 8 a.m. this morning I started feeling like i was having a panic attack. I took my prescribed med for it. At roughly 10 a.m. my heart started pounding and I worked my way down at about 10:30 a.m. I am now experiencing Tingly feelings all over body and I feel cold. I have never had the tingly feelings and coldness before and just wounded if this was normal with an anxiety attack. Thank you for your help Rat

Hi, Ive suffered a good few panic attacks in the past 2 months. Mostly when I have been on a night out drinking alcohol. But also in the last week I started to get one while I was training. As I wasnt under the influence of alcohol I was able to control it, rather than let it get completely out of hand. On the very first night it happened I collapsed and then had a panic attack.

most nights i seem to have a problem sleeping as my heart seems to be beating too fast and once ive set my mind on it it doesn t stop. to begin with i had panic attacks as i smoke marajuana and im quite a stressed individual but now my chest hurts regularly, and when i try fall asleep at night i ll be woken up all of a sudden struggling for breath. even after a walk or just going out with some friends my heart starts to pound, i m really really worried, if i know i can t die because of it i d be so much more relaxed but i m sure it s something more than a panic attack.

I have been having a tightness in my chest and a feeling of heaviness for about 2 hours now. It also feels a little tight in my throat and I feel as though I cannot get as much air in my lunges as usual. This has happened to me before and last time was a few weeks ago when I was on holiday... could this be something to do with the heat? Just before the feeling came on I was eating chocolates - I m wonder if this has affected my sugar levels or blood pressure perhaps. I am trying not to panic as I am wondering is this a panic attack without me realising its one?? Thank you for reading, hope you can help . Sara
