I didn't look up your history of post, so I ask: is this something new, or a repeat of past scares?
Are you alone? Can you talk with someone if not in person than on the telephone? The above suggestions about breathing sounds good to me, I am not suggesting something different, just some more ideas on how to cope.
Do you have heart rhythm symptoms at other times, or is this the first time?
Have you discussed any of this with a doctor? That is a good place to start especially if the heart rhythm is chronic.
Panic attacks will make your heart race, pound, beat a million miles per hour, make it hard to breath, and will even make your chest feel tight... For me I sweat like no other when i'm having one. If this happens again, tell yourself this is only a panic attack. I am not having a heart attack. I will beat this. and like others said BREATH!!. I know a few people who rushed themselves to the hospital because they KNEW they were having a heart attack. After a TON of tests it was only anxiety. Sorry you had to go through that.
Glad you are feeling a little better now. I get this when I'm socially anxious and I agree with everyone's posts on the breathing exercises. It helps to calm you down and negate the panic and anxiety. We're here for you:)
