I've never heard of somebody screaming during a panic attack. Shortness of breath, sensation of not being able to breathe or feeling as if you are choking...racing pulse...palpitations...acute anxiety and distress...those are the usual types of panic attack symptoms.

It seems more likely to me that you had a particularly horrific nightmare and you were still reacting to it when you woke up.

Has it ever happened to you before?

Don't be polite and wait patiently in line if things are getting unbearable.

If you talk to your doctor and explain how much worse things have been for you, he can fast-track your hospital stay - the hospital will prioritise you for an available bed and get you in there quicker. :hug:
