Everyone i read about on here's panic/anxiety attacks last for like 5 minutes or so, but for some reason mine have been quick and out the blue! The other couple ive had, my my breath has suddenly been taken away from me, and i panic.
So some of you might have seen my other threads lately, ive had a really really bad time of anxiety the last 4 days. But this morning it ramped up even more when I noticed a dodgy mole and i went into panic mode (not panic attack) i was just getting worked up thinking about, but i'd already agreed to go for a bike ride with my friend. i really didnt want to go i felt so anxious but thought it might do me some good.
So i was biking really slowly, not out of breath or anything i just wanted a stroll, but i just felt so anxious i wanted the bike to be over with. So im just biking along when all of a sudden my breath dissapears/shortens for a second or two, my chest flutters/heart palps, and then bang, gone.. Over in two seconds max
The thing im struggling with is, was it an anxiety attack? Or was it the palpitations causing the shortness of breath?
Hmm i had two apperent anxiety attacks when i was first diagnosed, they was similar in that they took my breath for a second or two but there was no chest flutter or palpitations. I try convince myself well an anxiety attack is a surge of adrealine that could obviously cause heart palpls aswell but theyre so scary!!
I felt like i was dying, for the best of the bike i was worrying whether i was going to make it home i was going to slow trying not to raise my heart rate or get out of breath!
