Panic attacks can be really scary and dangerous- get to a hospital, let them know you're in the process of withdrawal, and DON'T drive yourself there because that won't be safe.

Today, I,m feeling much calmer, can breathe deeply and tightness has gone. I think cos kids where getting worried, it freaked me out more. Had some massage and did tapping, and it seemed to help.

Glad you're feeling better. When I was withdrawing from alcohol I had such bad palpitations that I actually lay awake for nights terrified in case I had a heart attack. Yeah, pretty sure it was anxiety based - kinda like a pro-longed panic attack? Toss in paranoia and it's quite a party!! It did pass after about 2 days. I tried distraction - exercise and meeting up with people. It was worst when I was alone & thinking too much. Good luck & hope you continue to feel better!
