Has anyone ever had these symptoms?  The best way to describe it is that my chest feels like it's just pounding crazy-like but my heart rate is not much more elevated than it normallyu is.  I feel almost shaky and slightly dizzy and can't figure out why.
 
I normally don't feel like this when I have panic... usually it's waves of extremly dizziness or extreme feelings of terror...
 
but this is new and bizarre.. it's almost like I'm having a heart attack but there's no pain?! Can anyone help me figure out what's wrong with me?  I don't like feeling like this and never have.

Hello and I am sorry you are having new symptoms with the panic attacks. You will find many members here that have the same symptom. If you feel for any reason that it is cardiac related you need to call your physician or present to the Emergency room.

I think with panic attacks you can have any variety of symptoms and they can change, not always be the same. This is my own opinion and I am not a physician.

Take care and please follow up if you feel the need. Bless you and I wish you peace.

I've had the same issue, for me its total panic related. It can happen when nothings going on, just sitting in bed watching TV. I've checked my blood pressure when its happening, and its normal for me.

Tell your doc about it. They can do a simple xray of your chest to check for blockage. It sounds like panic realted to me. Been there, done that!

hmmmm. I've had that before. Question for you. When this happens, and you lay down do the symptoms immediately go away?

I've felt all those symptoms before and the only way to get rid of them, for me, was to lay down. I'm curious if the same thing is happening. If so, then its not panic. If it persists even when laying down or occurs while laying down, then chances are it is panic.

I'm no doctor though.

best
Dan

hey.. sorry for taking so long to respond everyone..

my ma got sick ... her heart valve failed and had congestive heart failure but she had surgery and now she is doing SO much better so I've been really out of sorts.  She's coming home Sunday to my dad's house. 

She's going to need a LOT of extra care.

Meanwhile my panic has been thru the roof worrying about her... especially the first day when I was so panicky in the hospital from everything and not knowing what was wrong that i had to take an extra Lorazepam/Ativan.

 

Other than that... the panic is good... but my OCD with the idea of people trying to kill me is awful.. .  I'm wondering if it's because I bought this book called the "serial killer files" and it talks about all the awful ways all sorts of people were murdered.  Half the time I'm wondering if someone is going to poison me or if my boyfriend wants to kill me.

 

I think that book needs to go in the garbage immediately. lol

I am doing well with stores.  I go into Target on one ativan/lorazepam now and forget I even have panic disorder.... which is WONDERFUL cuz then I can think clearly about all the things I have to buy.

I'm having a problem with malls still of course... and slightly still with restaurants... but it's step by step... and a day at a time..

All things appear frightening in the beginning of recovery from Panic Disorder... but with true effort only success can prevail.

 

:)

 

Take care all.... *HUGS*

 

P.S. Those symptoms have subsided... now I have food poisoning... YAAAAAY diarrhea lol

 

LOVE

Twiggygal~
