Panic attack/breathing

Posted , 6 users are following.

Sitting on my bathroom floor trying to get my breathing under control. Got the overwhelming feeling that I can't catch my breath. Breathing too fast and not feeling any relief from it. Mind feels tired and foggy. Doesn't help I've only had max of 4 hours sleep last night as was out late and also up early this morning chasing the kids round park all day in th heat. Hate feeling like this. Feel like I'm gonna just stop breathing

    Press down on the diaphragm just under ur ribs at both sides. It will help u breathe deeper. Close ur eyes cos ur heart slows due by a third when u do this

    don't worry....try to drink 4-5 glasses of water (empty stomach) at morning, and then take breakfast after 45 minutes. Do this for 10 days regularly. You will be 100% ok smile

    Somebody told me this and I tried....It really works.

    Sometimes it takes a few hours after the initial attack. I'll start to get calmer and then real. Cold. When I feel like that it's comforting as I no its over for now.
