Just wondering if anyone else on the forum has experienced losing consciousness at the height of a panic attack? I have now experienced passing out during a panic attack on multiple occasions (at least 10 times). It’s frustrating because I KNOW it’s from the panic attack but whenever I’ve spoken to a health professional they’ve told me it’s not possible to faint from a panic attack. All the literature online seems to say the same. What is happening to me then? I pass out for approx 15/20 seconds (my husband is a nurse so has confirmed I do properly pass out) and when I come to I’m extremely disoriented and have a cold sweat all over and extreme numbness/tingling in arms and hands and legs and feet.
