     Here today I have experienced very vivid De Ja Vu is the only way to describe it. It feels as if I can't control it, I am going to come out of my skin, and I have had severe head aches today. I do not have an anxiety disorder, however when I was younger (maybe 10yrs or so ago, I went through councelling for childhood trauma and abuse) The episodes only last a minute or two but is brought on by an extreme feeling of de ja vu. It makes me dizzy, sweat, head pound, hot flashes,heart race and my asthma gets affected. I feel as if I am dieing. With as short as the episodes are could this truely be a panic attack? Could it be something more? Please help me. I almost can not even function, this is making me nutts. It happens and is over quickly but it is really scaring me.

hiya and welcome, i agree with lyn, it does sound like some a/p and some ppl do go days and weeks without them and bam, they will strike again. I have had alot of episodes over the years that were short like that. Although i was glad they went away fast, they are still so very scarey. The longer ones even worse. You should go to your doc and tell him all the symptoms. Hopefully they will come and then go away as fast as they came, my doc says that can happen, good luck to you and let us know how you are doing. Take care

I think I do need to talk to my doc about this. I have had 8 episodes today. I haven't had this problem in years. Thanks for your support.
