anxiety attacks out of nowhere?
« on: June 01, 2014, 02:36:56 PM »
Has anyone just had a random anxiety attack?  I wa walking out of church, no anxiety what so ever and my throat starts to feel super tight. It wasn't affecting my swallowing but I felt like it was kind of hard to breathe. Not an allergic reaction. It's gotten a little better but my throat is still super tight, my heart has raced and skipped beats and my head hurts.

Absolutely.  I had one come out of nowhere last Friday.  Sweating, shaking, nausea, trembling, rapid heart rate -- all the classics.  I actually even threw up from it.  I was just home, reading, minding my own business when it hit.  I understand it's rather common for them to come out of nowhere, which makes them even scarier.

Before this episode of Health Anxiety I used to only experience anxiety attacks at complete random. 'Attack' infers suddenness.

Yup, mine can be caused by something or just totally random.  Some doctors will put you on a regular low dose of an anti-anxiety drug to keep it from happening.
