    I think mine was in the 120s that's very high for me

    Although there may have been times when it was higher but I just hadn't checked it

    Mine went to 205.

    I didn't seek help, i just carried on working trying to ignore it.Not very clever to be honest.It is purely down to the anxiety bringing on the panic bringing on the adrenalin rush, as once you start thinking about it the fear kicks in the adrenalin surge.

    I fought mine by singing to myself, or remebering some funny comedy or funny jokes.Eventually it passed but kept returning and at times i thought my heart would beat itself to death.I seriously don't recommend anyone ignoring it but the proper techniques do work in shutting down the panic and thus breaking the vicious cycle.

    My techniques are.

    Breathe in deeply through the nose and out the mouth & if you can blow out the air quickly after you have got a full lungs full.

    Sit in front of a fan & blow it to the face.

    Keep one of those small pocket fans (if you are out & about) & waft it on you face.

    Above all else Try not to to pant with breathing as this will hyper-ventilate you.

    I wish you all the best in breaking the cycle &/or controlling it.

    So 190 isn't abnormal for a panic attack??? When mine was happening they said my ECG was normal....does that mean it wasn't my heart causing the fast heart rate?
