I get these adrenaline rushes. The can be really brutal when you're not in a situation when they are of any help ie running away or fighting. I usually know when I'm about to get one - I would be watching the tele, in complete relaxation mode, when all of a sudden something on my body would twinge. For example: I would get a slight muscle spasm on my chest, I then get a huge dunt of adrenaline in my stomach because I think it's a twinge from my heart, signalling certain death. Some other times I would feel a weird sensation pass through my face up to my head and that what has triggered my full blown panic attacks. I have that well under control now and not had one in ages, maybe twice in the last year. I sometimes feel it coming on, but when I don't react like I used to, it just goes away. The adrenaline is what I seem to get all the time just now, just about every day i get some sort of rush in my stomach. To be honest, I prefer that feeling to the panic attack feeling any day of the week.
