My Worst Panic Attack...
I started getting panic attacks when I was 13 (I'm now 15), first class of secondary school. My panic attacks are usually me hyperventilating, feeling anxious, my arm and leg muscles twitching uncontrollably, and me playing with my fingers, pulling at my hair and tapping my feet. My heart rate goes up, my vision goes blurry, I get light-headed - sometimes to the point that I can't move at all - I feel like I'm going to faint. Usually, physical or eye contact would only make me feel worse, unless the physical contact is just holding my hand or putting a hand on my shoulder.
So, I had all those symptoms but then it got a lot worse. I was hypserventilating for about 2 hours already. Then the panic attack changed. My throat closed up completely so I couldn't breathe in, breathe out, talk - nothing. So it looked like this;
5 - 10 seconds of not breathing at all,
5 - 10 seconds of hyperventilating,
And again and again and again.
That went on for another two hours.
So that's the story of my worst panic attack.
You can really overcome panic attacks - I suggest trying Chinese acupuncture and acupressure, it helped me a lot.
I haven't had a single panic attack for 32 days so far!
