I am female 21, years of age, about 125 pounds, and a couple nights ago, I had what I think was a panic or anxiety attack. I had rapid heart beats and started hyperventilating. I had a throbbing pain in my chest and thought I was going to faint and/or throw up every time I stood up. I was really restless and couldn't stay still. After i calmed down a bit I would either be sweating or had the chills. I couldn't sleep because I kept thinking I would die if I did. I have had something similar to this before a few months ago; however, this time I still feel mild pain every once in a while in my chest and upper body a couple days later.
It usually happens whenever I watch certain movies that put negative thoughs of death in my mind. I've read a lot of the symptoms for heart attacks and it sounds almost similar to mine. Is it possible that it could have been a heart attack? I'm going to the doctor for my regular check up in about a week, should I just wait till then to talk to him about it or do something about it now? I worry a lot about my health eventhough I'm only 21... any body have some advice?
