the first episode i had was 5 yrs. ago, my heart was beating out of my chest, i was vomiting, my pulse was thready and i thought i was loosing my mind. when i got to the hospital they put a monitor on my finger and my whole hand curled up and went numb. of course i went crazy until the doctor screamed for me to calm down. they told me it was a panic attack and prescribed valium for 5 days. several years later it hit again. i have problems being in public places and big groups. i aviod places like wal-mart because of the crowds. anyway, i was in a meeting and was called on by an instructor. there we go.. i ended up at my doc's office screaming check my b/p. ( i suffer from hypertension). they gave me a bag to breath in and prescribed ativan for a couple of days. the doc also tried putting me on lexapro, took it the first day when another occured, discarded. they also tried paxil. i hate to admit im scared of pills, and count my b/p medication daily to make sure all my pills match what i wrote on the calandar for that day. i take my blood pressure daily, and obsess about everything my body does. ( like have i urinated enough, are my fingers swollen, ect.). am i going crazy? please tell me someone else goes thru this also and what could help.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
