Okay, this isn't an emo blog, I'm asking for advice.

This past week has been a very bad one for me. I've been sick and I've had some really bad women problems. Anyhow, after a particularly bad episode last night, my chest started hurting. I went to bed, and slept well (due to being drugged-out), but when I woke up, my chest still hurt. I self-diagnosed myself as having a panic attack. I have at least a couple of the symptoms, and the causes are certainly there.

How do I treat a panic attack? I've never had one before, and this is really sucking.

All wound up
On the edge
Terrified

Sleep disturbed
Restless mind
Petrified

Bouts of fear
Permeate
All I see

Heightening
Nervousness
Threatens me

I am paralyzed
So afraid to die

Caught off guard
Warning signs
Never show

Tension strikes
Choking me
Worries grow

Why do I feel so numb
Is it something to do with where I come from
Should this be fight or flight
I don't know why I'm constantly so uptight


Sorry. Anyway, TS, ask your doctor.

EDDIT: Sorry again, that seemed douchebaggish. Still, ask your doctor, www.google.com, if you're still around your parents they should do something to figure it out.

I have the same issues and it's usually because of stress. I take Lexapro. But you might want to go see a doctor?

What is a wimp like you doing in a place like this?

its in breathing man thats the best way to cope with attacks... slow deep breaths through your nose and out through your mouth...

panic attacks are also associated with low-blood sugar... im a hypoglycemic and i usually experience them if i havent eaten properly, when my blood-sugar is really low i often find tighteness in my chest much .. so watch what you eat especially since youve been sick..

hope this helps man i know where youre at with how much they suck im almost daily for 7 years

does it feel like there's a tightness in you chest like you cant breathe all the way in? try to breathe realy slowly and from your gut.

if you have a history of anxiety attacks or they wont go away then go see a doctor

Ive got a bad cold right now and i had one earlier when i was asleep =\ i had a temperature too so i was shaking to begin with and i couldnt stop shaking, i had to focus really hard on stopping shaking and finally i did it.

It's weird, i was shaking at first and knew what it was cus i'd had panic attacks before and i never understand why i'm doing it and it dosnt worry me at first im like 'wtf?' then as it goes on i get all paniced because i dont know :|

Horrible stuff
