Just only less than an hour ago i had my first bad panic attack in more than i guess 6 months! Been on Lexapro a long time now and that seemed to have made them go away but today OUT OF NOWHERE i got one of the worst kind of attacks i used to get! It was hell, still feeling it a bit as i write... :( I was painting my apartment today and i guess i must have pulled a mustle or something cos i got this really bad pain in my back, then it spread to my chest (its still there now) and down to my tummy making me feel sick, i started to freak out a bit and my whole body started to tingle, i felt like i was going to faint and thats when it started i started to shiver uncontrollably. (used to get this kind of panic attack all the time like a year ago! its one of the worst types i ever had to go through) My whole body was just shaking i couldnt even hold my tea (peppermint tea relaxes me when i used to have attacks) i nearly dropped it, it lasted a while and now im trying to relax and control it! i got so scared, i know i learned everything about panic and all, and i though for the most part it was all gone but after this one all those old feelings came flooding back! I felt like i would die... But in my head i said no! This is normal for panic,,, didn't seem to work, thank god my wife was here to hold me, she made me feel so relaxed and calm... hope my attack don't come back and this pain in my back and chest go away, (hopefully just a mustle and nothing more..) Not feeling to good right now, tight chest dizzy sick, pains... :( hope it will go away soon...
