Hi a few yrs ago i had an op for a hernia in my tummy, then 3 days later started with breathlesness, i felt i could not breathe, thought i was going top die,, it carried on and on,, went to gps cause i thought it was related to my op,, buthe said its panick attacks,, but i was not panicked over anything at all other than nervouse about my op,, but this was 3 days after the op,, i was convinced it was not panick attacks,, it was happening a lot and not just once a week it was everyday all the time , i just thought i was gonna stop breathing,, then they sent me for tests for ashma(fine) xray on lungs (fine) ecg(fine) all the tests was fine, then the sent me for breathing excercises as it still was happening,, i learnt to cope by doing these breathing exercises,, its so annoying sometimes,, then i got diagnosed with colitis a couple years ago then got my own hairdressing salon and last year i had clients booked in for hair done, it was hot day i was blowdrying a ladies hair and i felt funny i then could not breathe i was on my own in the salon too, and i had to leave the clients to go out side to breathe ,i rang a friend who came to finish my client off (thank god\) and i went home,, i also was in a large shopping centre on my own again, i was in a que waiting to be served then went funny again , could not breathe i needed to get out of there as i was fast walking to the car park i was shaking my legs where so shaking i could not breathe it was awful i could not even put the car parking card in the machine to pay i was shaking that much, a guy helped me,, i got in car and drove back to salon taking deep breathes to calm down and burst into tears when i got in the salon,,, i had it again one day when walking home from the salon(hubby had car) got half way and my colitis was starting and i panicked,, again could not breathe and was shaking i had to sit on a bench and ring a neighour to get my husband to collect me,,(thought i was going to die) i often get dizzyness its wierd cant describe it, it feels like i,m bit off balance kind of, but then my colitis will start,,, ive had a scan on my heat and ecg;s etc and they say my hearts fine (apart from slight heart murmour i have) which they say isnot the problem,,, i have not had as many panick attacks if thats whay they are? for a while but i have had this dizzyness,,,, i just cant make it out,, all i ever get is its panick attacks but i dont feel panicked, i worry about my kids n stuff but only like others do,,, i just dont know,, any input would be great x

It does appear to me that you have some health aniety. I would suggest you look at seeing a therapist to help you identify ways to help you reduce the anxiety through talk therapy, CBT or whatever the therapist may feel is best for you.

Your story is a bit hard to follow. :)

hi, sounds like these attacks <whatever they are caused from> are overwhelming and draining... My heart goes out to you--compared to you--my anxiety attacks are mild... Going to a psych doc, or investigating other medical concerns would help lesson the stress you must be under--not knowing what's going on with your body... Keep in touch, & take care...
