Hi all…

im just thinking back to 3 weeks yesterday. All week I had a weird sensation in my right eye, a twitch like feeling that would only go away late at night or when I was relaxed. I worked 4 12 hour shifts that week, so put it down to tiredness/stress. That Friday night I was driving home from work and experienced a weird sensation that overtook my whole body. I was having chills/sweats/facial tingiling/headache and heart palps all in one for around 2 minutes. This happened again at home along with chest pain and stayed with me for much longer resulting in me being taken to hospital. A 14 hour wait in hospital later to be told I had just had my first panic/anxiety experience.

Looking back now should I have known it would come to a head? Was the eye sensation a sign that I should of took more seriously? Did anyone else have triggers or signs like these before their first panic attack? I’m intrigued to know..

Hugs, laura x

mine were a worsening of muscle spasms, twitching and shakes in my hands.
I don't think that you should or could have known that you were about to have one. it is only after that you release and recognise the signs.
