Hey everybody, i recently had my first major panic attack about
3 weeks ago. I had small symptoms starting back to 7 or 8 months ago of maybe once a week trying to get that full breath for about
an hour or so, then a week or so before the big one i started to have that feeling every night and sometimes during the day, thinking about
it constantly. then the day it happened my head felt like it weighed 100 pounds but while my friend was over everything else felt fine, but as soon as he left my whole body started pulsating and the first second i thought i was in trouble i could not get it out of my head and it escalated to where i had to tell my parents i had to go to the ER, (even though at that time i didnt have medical insurance).Lucky in a way my father suffered from major panic and ocd and was able to tell me i was alright, the doctor gave me medication to calm me down during times i feel an attack coming on, but they made me wait about
a month to get in to talk to a doctor
. I just kind of wanted to tell my story and am thankful for all the supporters on this site. I am here if anyone needs someone to talk to also
. and does anyone know if panic is hereditary? since my father had it?
