I'm hoping someone can answer me. Today, while sitting at my desk I had a panic attack. However, how it started is what puzzles me. I work at a computer for 8-9 hrs a day. While working, I was looking down at some paperwork and as I started to turn upwards to the computer screen my eyes seemingly 'froze'. I'll try to explain clearly. I did not experience any pain, dizziness, light headiness, no spots, no blurriness, nothing. It felt as though my eyes were paralyzed. It lasted maybe 3 sec, it seemed a lot longer but doubt it was. It kicked off a panic attack, 2 others were in the room with me and noticed nothing. Since then I've had muscle tension around the eyes.
I have chalked it up to stress/neck muscle tension.
