I was led in bed and all of a sudden had a burning sensation come over my whole body. Like it was rising from my feet up towards my head. My head is pounding and I can’t stop crying. I sort of have it under control but these attacks are new to me and sometimes I feel like I’m going to pass out. (Dramatic I know) is this normal? My medication seems to be slowing my heart rate but this is terrifying.
Please anyone distract me
