Conditions with symptom: 'panic attack'
Hello, I am a 14 year-old girl that has grown up with Autism, but that is not why I am on this website. Last Sunday 28th of March, I went to the Kessingland Car-boot sale with my mum, and I think I may have had a panic attack. My heart rate was quickened, I was very scared, felt a bit sick and I just REALLY wanted to get back to the car. When I got back, I shoved a muffin in my mouth and just ate it madly, it may have been the panic attack or it could've been because I just hadn't had any breakfast. Still, it scared me... I want to know if I'm right and I did have a panic attack.
I have recently developed an irrational fear of the dentist. I've never been worried before, but in the last year or two I've had a lot of work done, and I think this has triggered me to be scared. I found out a couple of months ago that I need to have a wisdom tooth extracted, I've never had a tooth out before and this absolutely terrifies me. Another one of my wisdom teeth has been causing me pain now too. My fear has become so bad that it provoked a panic attack, which I have never suffered with before. I am so absolutely terrified of having wisdom teeth out and I was wondering if they would do this procedure under a general anesthetic? I'm really worried that I won't be able to go through with the procedure if I am awake during, or if I do go ahead that I'll have a panic attack or something, I'm so scared!
I'm a 50 year old female, I just recently had a massive heart attack. Since my heart attack I wake up every night between 11 and 12 midnight in total panic I'm dreaming about horrible things I wake up everyone in the house yelling, swearing, crying. I don't know what is causing it and I don't know how to make it stop. The dreams are so real and there so horrifying that I can't get back to sleep. Anyone out there have any suggestions? Lori
Try sleeping with a light on, that helps when you ooen your eyes in a state of panic to see where you are and you are safe. Also, something like the low hum of a fan, tv turned down low or some light constant noise tends to helo too. I have had night terrors since I was a young kid. I am 34 now. These two things have helped me a lot. I hope this helps.
hi im 19 and for the last year i have been suffering from panic attacks every time i go out because every time i go out i get the feeling of urgently needing the bathroom and most of the time but every time i leave my house and i know there isn't a bathroom near by and even when there is i am over come with the need for the bathroom to pee and some time i even feel like i am wetting my self when im not and because of this i end up having a panic attack and it has gotten so bad some time that to go out side i have to wear a nappy and it has even prevented me from having sex iv been to a few doctors and they don't know what is wrong with me does anyone know what is causing this or has anyone else have this happen to them ??
I have this too! I feel like if there is no bathroom in sight, I can't go to certain places. Especially if I'm sat in an audience or a room full of quiet people, I suddenly need the toilet. I have started to walk out of church because of it and I feel so uncomfortable and embarrassed. I haven't gotten to your stage of going to the doctors, but I feel like if I carry on, then I might have to. My last year of school was terrible, because I couldn't go to a lesson without pretending that I felt sick, just so that I could walk out of the classroom and go to the toilet. I need big help as it's affecting my social life and my mind. If there is an explanation to this, please tell me!

I am 14 years old. 3 years ago while taking an 11+ exam, I had a panic attack and was taken out of the exam where I fainted. I have my GCSE's in a couple of years and I am petrified of having one during an exam. Is there any way I can be helped or will I just have to learn to cope?
Iv suffered with panic attacks for as long as i can remember. I suffer from depression...which when my daughter was taken from me due to a family member lying about me...became much worse and my panic attacks became more intense and more frequent. My depression is much better now but im having very intense panic attacks still. Is there anything that i can do to make them at least less intense?

I am 57 and had a heart attack last year before which I had been on HRT for a number of years. I have now had to come off the HRT and am experiencing vaginal dryness and night sweats. I have tried all the usual lubricating gels without success and don't know what to take which won't conflict with my heart attack medicines. Has anybody been in a similar situation and found any solutions?
