i'm in school, and today while in the hall waiting for someone, my heart started to race. It felt like it was about to beat right out of my chest...it was pounding. I had a little shortness of breath, and then everything started to feel weird...like a sense of impending doom.
I was walking to my class and everybody walking by made me feel so squished. I wanted to get out of there. I started to get hot and it felt almost as if things were going by in a haze. When i got to class i was lightheaded...and then it went away.
Can someone please explain this?
It has happened to me before. It just suddenly comes out of nowhere; it's not just social situations. It has happened when i was alone in my room. It's a sudden wave of paranoia with a racing heart and i just feel so freaked out.
