I kinda get that, I don't think it's anything serious. Are you seeing a doctor?

yeah  Yes helpingme I do and it is the weirdest feeling ever...you are the first person that has actually put it into the same words and it is almost impossible to discribe to a doctor. The first time it happened I was driving home from work and thought I was having a heart attack I actually drove straight to the ER instead of home. They kept me there for 3 days and found nothing except panic and anxiety. Now everytime I get a pain in my chest I will get the same gushing feeling and instantly think "Heart Attack". I think it is the adrenaline that we feel gushing thru our system, at least that is the only thing i can come up with because when we start to panic the body releases the adrenaline.
I have had all kinds of test and they tell me all is normal but even knowing this if i have a pain in my chest I still have a tendency to panic and bam here comes the gushing. 
You are not alone and thanks to you I am now not alone.

There are times that I have woke up from a sound sleep and have that warm gushy feeling you described and I know a panic attack is about to follow. I have no idea how a panic attack can be triggered when I am sound asleep.

yeah  Hello helpingme1...
 
Yeah the throat thing too!!!! And feeling like it is hard to breath and then I do cry because I am so scared. I know in my head that this is a panic attack but sometimes getting my mind to accept that fact is just plain hard and then the aftermath to deal with...but getting better and praying for you.

My bet would be normal anxiety. If it would make you feel better call up your doc and ask.

Right before my panic attacks, my throat and chest tightens up. I honestly don't know how to describe how I feel during panic attacks because it's so intense and I totally lose myself.

helpingme,  I also get a warm gushing feeling but not in my chest it's kind of all over, right before a panic attack, I chalk it up to adrenaline entering my system in the "fight or flight" response but it still scares me.  I also get the throat thingy usually it does make me cry (if I'm in a place where I can cry) but then after I cry I get lightheaded and that makes me nervous even though I know it is normal then I start my slippery slope.

Hi helpingme,

I used to get that feeling. I want to let you know that it is not real. I have been doing so much work and research into panic and anxiety recently and I have discovered some amazing things. I don't suffer any more. These sensations that we all get are figments of our imagination. By thinking about them we make them so real we believe them. It is weird. Just an insight, did you know the human brain can not actually tell what is real and what is not. By having a thought you can make something feel real but it actually isn't and that is the challenge that we all have. I am so excited by these concepts because for once in my life I feel in control, and I want to share it all with you.


I hope that this helps. I also hope that I can help0 anyone more because it is a wonderful feeling having control again.

Please let me know if I can help you in any other ways.

Ben

So Ben butt, how long have you had anxiety attacks? how long have you been controlling it? Is Joe Barry's panic away the thing that worked or do use meds or other forms of therapy. Just very curious since you're the only one who spoke up about Barry's panic away.

Hi there,

No, I had them for about 3 years. I used to get them at certain times. I used to go out with a girl who was a singer and I used to get panic attacks when she sang. It used to be like a trigger for me. I used to get a sinking feeling in my stomach, start to hyperventilate, all my throat would seize up and I would start shaking and crying. This reoccured for about three years and still sometimes it faintly comes over me, but I know I am in control and it gets easier. I don't use meds I never have, I don't believe that taking a drug resolves anything. All it does is cover up the real problem and the idea of taking pills for the rest of my life was not an option.

My method was to read books that were inspiring, I started to focus on a solution rather than the problem. I read books by Tony Robbins, Lyn Grabhorne on human pschology, I read about people who had been in far worse situations than me and they pulled through. This gave me leverage and self belief that I could absolutely take control. In a sense I looked for a message, what was this telling me. What were these attacks telling me, something needed to change. That was my method and I have made some great progress. Here is the thing with Joe. His method is different and it works if you apply what he teaches, but you have to take action, you have to use what he teaches. You can't expect to go to the gym once and be muscular. It takes dedication and work.

Hi i also have panic attacks, it used to be often especially when i am stress, but i tried binaural sounds and meditation, it helped me a lot. It takes awhile to get the best result, but the instant you listen, you will definitely feel a change. And no medication required just take a deep breath while listening, or meditate, yoga will help a lot too..good luck!
