I'm in the middle of a random panic atrack here and feel so alone and frightened. No one i can talk to is answering my calls or texts.. and this was the only other place I could think of to turn to. I feel shakey and my heart is beating so fast I can't breath properly does anyone have any techniques that could help me... please??

Hi,
Welcome to the forum, you need to concentrate on slowing your breathing down. I hope you have a paper bag in the house or flat, try breathing into the bag it will slow your breathing down and essentially stop the panic attack.
You need to find out what triggers you, then hopefully use calming techniques to stop a panic attack coming on.
Take care

Hi,
Can you put on any relaxing music and lie down, try to relax it might help.
I've had panic attacks, they do stop.
Take care
