I been having panic attacks for 7 months and when I first started to have them I felt hopeless. I felt like I was going to die everyday so I went to the doctor and he told me I was fine. I didn't believe him so I went to another doctor and I was told that I had an Irregular heartbeat, the doctor told me not to worry It was normal In some people. He also gave me some pills to relax my mind they do help but I choose not to really take them because when I ran out what was I suppose to do I didn't want to get hooked on them. I still think that something Is wrong with my heart and Its more than just panic attacks so I'm going to get checked by another doctor until I feel confortable. But when my panic attacks come on I try to think of my baby and how I have to be here to raise her and that I'm not going to die and everything will be fine.

I am 21 and its my first time smoking indica weed. about 15 minutes after i smoked it i started getting a panic attack and feels like i am losing conscious. I tried to relax and closed my eyes but suddenly everything started fading away and it feels like my heart i going to stop beating and losing conscious. I don t know if this feeling is passing out or going to sleep, but i freaked out and fought out of it to regain consciousness. Later i went to bed but just laid there and too afraid to sleep. Every few minutes while laying down i get a weird sensation going through my body. If i resist that sensation and fight it nothing happens, but since the feeling keeps happening every few minutes i tested to see what happens if i do nothing. Then when the sensation occurred again, i didn t resist, when this happened it seems like my mind is sucked into a black hole and losing consciousness, i couldn t move any part of my body and couldn t breathe. it lasted for 10 secs until i desperately tried to regain movement. Could this be some sort of stroke or sleep paralyis (i was still widely awake)? it is worrying me all week because i m afraid it will happen again. I went to emergency room and they tested my blood pressure and said i was fine. I am just worried about that weird sensation that feels like i am going out of conscious and cannot breathe of move any parts of my body.

I have them every night, several times and if they are particularly bad, I have to catch my breath. Almost like hypervenitilating. Trying to get scheduled for sleep study....any other suggestions?
