So in the last year I've had these incidences that I can only deduce are panic attacks because I have to drop dead. Every medical professional will tell you that there are differences between panic attacks and heart attacks. According to Docs, heart attack symptoms can last for hours on end, include pain in the chest that radiates throughout the jaw, neck, back and shoulders, sweating, nausea, vomiting, etc... panic attacks are usually a lesser duration and less severe in terms of the variety of places you feel pain. Well in my case, either I'm having heart attacks and they're not killing me or Im having some serious, SERIOUS panic attacks. I'm very active, very healthy, in the gym 5-6 days a week and have a muscular, athletic build. When I train, I feel great, no chest problems. It always happens when Im just chillin, trying to relax or in a dead sleep. Yesterday I was going to have a nice relaxing friday off, record some music, play video games etc... I was looking for an extension cord when I suddenly felt short of breath and really dizzy, then my heart started racing super fast and I felt like I as going to die. Not in a dramatic way but in a "okay, let me start saying my goodbyes in my head" type of way. I instinctively went outside in my bath robe in the hopes that if I were to fall out, maybe someone would see me and help. I ended up pacing in my drive way for about 20 mins until it subsided. The rest of the day I felt very anxious, nervous, short of breath and dizzy.
Anyone else have this extremely powerful experience and feel this incredible sense that you are knocking on heavens door?
