Hello everyone... I have been suffering from panic attacks for a few years now... Sometimes I can talk myself out of them, but other times they are just too overwhelming. I have alot of the typical symptoms: rapid heartbeat, dizziness, feelings of passing out, impending doom (feeling like I am going to die), etc. I recognize these symptoms... However I have a strange symptom that I have not read ANYWHERE through all my research. I get this weird tingling/warm sensation in my neck and head (feels like in my brain) that makes me feel like my neck is going to just collapse or that I'm having some sort of hemmorage or something. I also feel like my eyes aren't focusing and I'm overwhelmed by sound in general. Also, chewing food contributes negatively to this sensation. I realize that being a hypochondriac is also a symptom of anxiety disorders ;) Anyway, these sensations really freaked me out and I ended up having a CAT scan of my brain, an EEG and a few other tests all coming up normal. However, I still continue to have these weird feelings/sensations and I wonder if I have something seriously wrong with me... a brain or neck disease? If anyone has experienced any of these sypmtoms or has any information or suggestions, please let me know. Thank you in advance!
