    Hi, you were probably just light headed, and anxiety has turned it into a panic attack.

    Learn some breathing techniques, 

    I use, breath in the nose, count 4,out the mouth, then count 7, then 8 and repeat a dozen or so times, It works, you might find a different method.

    Hello Emily

    Bit confused with "bpm in the bath"...........all sounds like a really bad panic attack!

    If it was your blood pressure  reading at 110...that is GOOD.....did you mean something else?   Please reply........ x

      I was checking my pulse. As i read it should be around 70-100 at rest or something like that. So i have an obsession with checking it to see if it is around the same at different times of the day.

      I felt a little bit sick and dizzy before my bath and freezing but that was probably because i had been to alton towers theme park and had walked around in the cold and rain all day.

      I ended up getting my bf to ring me which helped as he said that i should go to sleep as im probably really tired.

    Hello again emily

    Checking your pulse several times a day is a sure sign of anxiety.  I know, because I have done it and still do sometimes.  My friend also does it and if it is a bit rapid she gets a panic attack.  Your pulse rate will vary, but with anxiety it can shoot straight up.  Hope you were able to sleep/rest after this episode, and that you are feeling better. Good Luck!

    Hi Emily, if the bath water was a little on the hot side your BPM will increase to cool your blood and skin, equally if you check your BPM it could rise if your anxious about it, they call it "white coat syndrome".

    Sounds like you've frightened yourself again and brought on an anxiety attack.

    Dont worry petal your just fine.

      I realise now that what I had what a panic attack. I probably didn't recognise it because I haven't had one in a long time, last one was because I ate kebab meat and started thinking it would kill me.. So random haha.

      I managed to calm down by getting my bf to ring and then just going to sleep.
