Feel like I cant breath

Posted , 5 users are following.

So anxiety has come back with avengence this week. I have had a crap weeks sleep waking in the night so I think that is contributing and also because I'm on holiday in a caravan so somewhere new, no the my safe place which is home. I feel okay for half of The day but for the last half I've been having panic attacks. The normal impending doom feeling, like I'm going to pass out and the can't catch my breath feeling and wanting to escape. I was in the supermarket earlier in the queue and was panicking and so wanted to just run out the shop but I didn't. Now tonight I feel like I can't breathe and I'm not getting enough air, I feel tired and my eyes feel tired so it's effecting my sight and it's scaring me. When my breathing gets affected it panics me more and the fact it's been like This for the past few hours. Is this really anxiety?

    Look up saint johns wort supplement and the effect of bananas on the minds pleasure recepters. Also look up the effects of seratonin deficiency and the foods thats contains this very vital gift from God your mind so craves.

    Emotional note

    find the one true happy place thats lies inside of you. once you learn to truly love yourself and remember that you are one with all of existence. all illusions of anxiety and panic shall fall. Fear has smoke and mirrors but in the end its still an illusion of the wondering mind.

    The symptoms you describe are those of a panic attack.  Something triggers the "fight or flight" response in your body. You then start breathing heavily etc. You notice that you are breathing heavily and that frightens you. That amplifies the fight or flight response etc etc.  A vicious circle.  

    I had an attack for 8 hours in March 2015.  I found that the way to stop it is to UNDERSTAND that your body is tricking you. You have no reason to fight or flee.
