anger during a panic attack anyone else

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi everyone been having a hard time dealing with panic attacks for months now but has been a ongoing issue since I was 15. Today I become a bit annoyed by someone and this feeling lasted about 10 minutes then i started to get anxiety symptoms such as breathlessness and faster heart and butterflies in my stomach with the feelings of anxiety i felt very annoyed or agitated and when people asked me questions I felt I would snap at them also urges to yell and go nuts at them the agitation was intensified by my feelings of panic this lasted for roughly half an hour. Has anyone had similar symptoms with agitation or anger it was very unusual for me and its been hours later and still feel uncomfortable by the feelings I experienced. Any input would be appreciated.

    Does not sound unfamiliar at all. Look your busy feeling all weird inside and someones chatting with you so yes it can be annoying from your end. All you want to do is feel better and calm down. The last thing on your mind is listening or being involved with another person at that time. Its all part  of anxiety. Maybe if you would have said to the person im have a anxiety attck right now and need to calm it down excuse me i cant talk to anyone right now.then you wouldnt be angry. And if someone improperly, even with good intentions, tries tocalm you it can feel fake and it can be irratating. Not a time for you to concerned with people pleasing.

    Yeah I've had that before. For me, I always wonder why I have to struggle with this. Why me? It just feels like it isn't fair.

    Is that similar for you?

      Life is full of stressors, these stressors cause our anxiety levels to fluxuate.  I have been so worked up with anxiety myself, that I lash out.  Sometimes we need to just walk away if it permits. Or explain to the person now is not the time to deal with a stressful event.  Choose your battles wisely.  Because they can cause us to become bitter and resentful, and take it personally.
