Ear pressure/heat??
« on: May 26, 2014, 10:04:37 PM »
Had a panic attack around dinner time today but now as I'm calming down (Im trying to resist taking Ativan and just deal with it) my ears feel hot or like there is pressure there. Its kind of freaking me out and keeping the anxiety high. My heart rate and o2 (bought a finger monitor  :spineyes: :spineyes:) is completely normal but I cant shake the feeling that theres something really wrong. Any one else get ear issues during their attacks?

ear issues are an indirect symptom of panic attacks. Whats actually happening is you are becoming extremely tense all over, usually without knowing it. One of those places is your jaw. When you strain your jaw (again, you likely won't notice you're doing it.) it puts pressure on your ears.

If you were eating right before or during it, then it was most likely that.

Thanks!
That makes sense. I know I tend to clench my jaw a lot, especially when I'm stressed. Have to keep reminding myself that its just anxiety & not the multitude of awful diseases running through my mind!
