I am just curious as to what everyone's opinion is about my "episodes" . They tell me it is a Panic attack but I just don't know. My most recent episode was yesterday driving home from the store. I had my kids in the car and I felt perfectly fine. We were having fun dancing to music and I was fine. Then out of no where I was very woozy/light headed,weak, my vision seemed darker, I felt.so.weak like I couldn't talk or swallow, I started shaking all over, and my heart started pounding and.racing, I felt a little short of breath. I got home and tried to shake it off. the whole thing went away within 15-20 minutes but it is always so very intense. sometimes I can feel it coming on by feeling really jittery in my chest and stomach and other times, like yesterday, they happen all of a sudden. It wasn't my blood sugar, and I wasn't hyperventilating. Does anyone else have attacks or episodes like these? Are generally panic attacks?
