Ok another question I have is I have panic attacks and anxiety out of no where, nothing triggers it, yesterday I was sitting here doing homework and my stomach got really hot and I had hot flashes, racing heart thought I was going to die!!!!!!!!!! I just jumped up and started pacing the floor until it went away, I just wish I was a little more educated about this, I mean what causes our bodies to have all these symptoms out of no where??? It really scares me!!!! sad

hi angela, there are triggers that tend to set me off, but i do get ALOT of panic attacks fresh out of the blue, which to me are the worst ones, im always looking for a reason. I wouldnt wish it on anyone, and im sorry you have to go through this, but i do feel the same. The heart will take off, bad bad thoughts of dying and hot flashes too. I wish i could say why they come out of the blue, and i wish we could make em stop easily. I wish you the best, and hope you feel much better soon. Remember, they cant kill ya, just make us stronger in the end ;) hugs

panic attacks, like other unpleasant parts of life, often just happen

they dont happen when we think they should, and they hit us out of the blue when they shouldnt

dont waste time by searching for some cause of each panic attack, some therapists do

'yes but what were you thinking of before the panic" was and perhaps is a common question, but   this approach doesnt help

panic attacks tend to happen  before or after, rather than during an anxious event

I will try to explain it the way a lay friend tried to explain it to me when I had my first one.I will paraphrase. All throughout the day we have little stresses, ie we can be watching TV and we hear a kids ball hit the outside of our house, we could be trying to take a nap and we hear a car alarm go off, we may get two ppl that call our house accidentally asking for someone else. All of these events are normal, non-threatening, and random.....but our bodies may decide to react to all these things at different times. I think 'out of the blue' panic attacks are just residual emotions or happenings from a regular day.Maybe it's a subconcious thing where our brain is trying to catch up with all the little sideline events that happened throughout the day. I explained it the best I could via the web, and prbly didnt convey it well...but it makes so much sense to me.

I actually think I will have to limit my time here bc I can read something...someone elses symptom or specific issues, then it'll be in my head on and off throughout the day. Don't think that's doing me any good lol.
