You very well could have had a panic attack, even though you didn't have the "common" symptoms. Attacks vary, and the symptoms aren't always the same. My first panic attack was also after doing a drug, though mine was x. At the time I didn't feel like I was going to die, I just felt completely overwhelmed, hot, dizzy, tingly, and my heart rate was out of my control. It was my second attack a week later in which I actually felt like I was going to die, and the attack was much more intense then my first one. Like the other people said, it's probably best to lay off the drugs altogether. Some people can do drugs for years and never experience a panic attack and others, like me, can try it once and ruin everything. I should have known better, my family has a history of anxiety disorders, but when you're young you think you're invincible.
Drugs can have really real, horrible consequences. In my nonmedical opinion I think you did have a panic attack. You may never have another one, or you may develop an anxiety/panic disorder and end up battling it for the rest of your life. Just be careful. If you experience anything like this again or if it gets worse, you should definitely go see a doctor to make sure it's not something more serious.
Fools don't learn from their bad experiences.Suggest that you take the greatest care you can of your brain & general health.Mental illness can be much more distressing than anything you have so far experienced ~ the choice is yours. Look after yourself & avoid playing around with substances that are proven to be harmful. Jolting as you are about to fall asleep's not unusual for anyone, riding out the storm may not always be possible if you don't make a positive step to stay well. Good Luck
Why not lay off of the skunk? If you had an experience like that with this, then I would probably not do it anymore. Drugs can definintely increase your anxiety in my opinion, and can bring it forward. Also, you may not know exactly what is in the stuff you are smoking...keep us posted!
