I'm a student in college and i need advice to help overcome my anxiety and panic attacks. From as far back as i can remember i always had no problems with anxiety and i was confident etc.. but a couple years ago i suffered from what i think was an anxiety attack, i got really hot and sweaty, lightheaded and embaressed because of this. Since then i frequently get the same 'attacks' when in social, or awkward situations. I only seem to get these attacks when, for example, i have to present something to the rest of the class, or if i sit near the front of the class so that everyone can see me or even in some cases, when a teacher asks me a question. I also, i seem to suffer from these attacks when i am hot (if the temperate of the classroom is stuffy and warm) i try my hardest to keep myself cool by drinking cold water, breathing deeply and trying to keep my mind off these attacks but my constant fear of potentially having one makes me more anxious. if anyone can relate to this and possibly give me advise as to what i can do to overcome this, it would be greatly appreciated. thanks.
