I am 27 years old and female. I have panic attacks well what I'm told are panic attacks. It starts out my hands get sweaty then I get hot all over and my body feels numb my chest gets hot and feels like I can't breath I get dizzy and my heart is beating out of my chest. Sometimes I feel off balance and almost like I will pass out. Never have passed out. I went to the er a few days ago because I was completely freaked out and they ran blood tests and did an ekg and chest X-ray and everything came back fine. After the attack I feel very off still feel off balance from time to time and detached like I'm not really here and like everything is fake. I think I'm dying I think I have a brain aneurysm or something seriously wrong with me or is it all in my head?? I think the worst medical condition possible I have and googling and reading of course don't help. Once I read it I think I have it and think my symptoms are like that and start to panic again. I also started taking Venlafaxine this past Tuesday 37.5 mg at first just bumped it up to 75 mg yesterday. I feel like I'm way to in tune with my body and when I start to feel a little normal I freak out thinking it's not normal to feel normal lol. Idk how to explain that. Please tell me I'm not alone and there are others out there like me?
