Allot of us talk about being faint with a P/A, or "I thought I was going to faint". I would just like to know how many have fainted many times with P/A's.
I used to crash so often, it was terrible, I got so sick of being scraped off the ground that I became housebound. Of course I thought I was dying, or having a heart problem. I had always been told you may feel faint but nobody ever does when having a panic attack. I really disagree with that. I'm not housebound anymore and enjoy my freedom of being able to live a fairly normal life, I just wondered if anyone else had this problem of fainting when panicing. Thanks

I have never actually fainted during a panic attack, but the "almost fainting" is my most common symptom.

I have fainted but usally I just almost faint. It got so bad over the summer I could not plan out anf give my little girl a birthday party with friends, just a small home party with family so if I passed out,it would just be close family who saw.

When your anxious your blood pressure rises therefore im doubting that a panic attack caused you to faint.
