I feel like I have something stuck in my chest and could faint. Just took DSs out to the soft play place and while I was sitting down reading the paper, I suddenly came over all shaky, felt like I had something stuck in my chest, lightheaded and as if I would collapse. I have had panic attacks before but nothing like this!!

I had to grab the kids and get out of there. Managed to drive home whilst terrified I would crash the car and now don't know what to do. Am worried about being with the kids alone (DH at work and not back until late tonight)as I am worried I am going to have a heart attack!! My GPs surgery are not answering the phone.

I started taking Prozac 5 days ago thinking it would bloody help and I have felt worse since I started taking it. Any advice please??? I have also posted this in Mental Health.

Call NHS Direct.
And calm down, just in case it is anxiety-related.

can you call NHS 24 and let them know how your feeling? It may be a side effect of the medication but I don't have any experience of it

Do you have any family or friends who could come and sit with you?

No one to come sit with me unfortunately. I will try NHS Direct. I have a feeling it is anxiety related but I cannot understand wtf this happened when I was relaxing, reading the blooming paper!

anxiety is a bugger at times....comes and bites your bum when you least expect it

hope you feel much better soon
