Hello, everyone I am also new to the site and not sure how this works of if this is the correct way to do this but here goes nothing. I have had two panic attacks in my life one about three weeks ago and one about a year ago. This was the first time anything this frightening has ever happenend to me. The first time I actually was told to go to the hospital which happened to be about 10 mles away from my home. This was a bad ideal because i had an accident on the way. Thank God no one was hurt but I messed up my car pretty bad. When I got there they did nothing for me just left me sitting in the waiting room. My heart was racing my blood pressure and blood sugar were way out of control and they did not even give me the time of day I thought I would die. I was told to go home and I had to go through it alone. It lasted about two weeks and I could not sleep for 9 days and nights. The next time was about three weeks ago. This time it took me two three weeks to full go through it. This time I did not go to the doctor. It seems to me I still am having physical problems from it. I would look up symptoms I was having and further freak myself out. I still am having a racing heart at times and constipation. I have been afraid to exercise because of my heart beating to fast and can not sleep at night. I wake up all during the night and some nights only get a couple of hours of sleep. I am afraid I will have a heart problem from the excellerated heart rate and high blood pressure. I have type 2 diabetes and seem to be having unstable blood sugar inspite of a glutn free diet. I only eat protein vegetables and one piece of fruit pre day and still can not eliminate. I was doing research and found this site.
