I'm shaking like a leaf, cold sweat, breathing heavily and feeling absolutely terrified. My knees are trembly when I try to walk too.

Is that a panic attackk?

I think it does sound like one.

Are you better now? sorry this happened xx

Thanks quirrel.. I'm hoping it was a one off? lasted about 40 mins I think :/ x

40 minutes of that is awful, I do feel for you. Has it happened before, do you know what the trigger was?
hope today is a great day to make up for it!

No, never had it before and I was just sitting quietly reading on here - nothing happening at all - bizarre.. today was uneventful.. which is a good thing, lol.

violent literary reaction! grin
I've had isolated moments of panic where I didn't have another one for over a year (still had low level anxiety tho).
Maybe you're stressed?
no probs hon smile

haha.. quite possibly grin

Yeah I do have quite a lot of things to worry about at the moment.. I guess it could be that? Seeing my fab gp on Monday so maybe he'll have some insight into it

Hope you're ok Quirrel
