    I'm sorry you are having a panic attack. sad it's the worst feeling ever. Take a minute to close your eyes and take some deep breaths. Get your mind on better things. There are so many reasons people can be very tired. I am a hypochondriac too - I can get myself so worked up at the drop of a hat. I try to remind myself of how many times I have been wrong in the past! I hope you get through it fast!

      Thank you, yes I do the same thing remind myself of how many times I have felt this exact same way amd that its always the same thing, a panic attack. What started was I have just slept since Friday, and when I wake up im tired again in two hours and then go back to sleep for a few hours and so on, I'm just so sick of this crap, I feel a twinge and I think something major is wrong with me, I get short of breath and it must be a blocked heart valve,  its all just so over the top and yet in the moment it's so real. I just feel like I am never going to be free of this, I just want to be normal again.

      I am the same way! Only my main thing is I am always convinced I have cancer or am having a heart attack. Usually cancer. Then heaven forbid I look symotoms up online because those will say it's cancer too! Lol I know just what you mean about it being so real in the moment. It's just awful. Then I feel stupid telling people about it. Just know you are not alone!

      Mine is always heart attack lol, I have ended up in the emergency room so many times and calling paramedics,  and a feel so stupid after,  sometimes I feel I would be happier if they actually found something and I know that sounds insane but at least then they could fix it and it wouldn't just all be in my head, but if they did find something im sure I would regret feeling this way.

      This is why this site helps me so much, all of us are pretty much going through the same thing one way or another,  x

      It did help, but coming in this site always helps because of all the reassurance,  but I just left my friends house as being inside seemed to be making me worse,  even though my friend new I was panicking and was trying to take my mind off of it

    Sarah you are not dying, I`ve had lots of panic attacks in my life, Im 69 now and still alive. Get yourself a good relaxation cd (they sell them on ebay) you will find it very helpful. Try to think its just a panic attack it`s not going to kill me. Are you on medication.?

      I have been on 40mg for many years. I think it`s a great suggestion from RICHARDT re. writing everything down.

    Write down the way you feel everyday, then make a appointment with you GP, and give him the written notes on how you feel, that way your GP will understand you better bcoz it is hard especially if u are nervous to not prepare what u are really suffering from, good luck.
