Hey everyone.

I writing this about 15 mins after I just had something really scary and weird happen.

Basically I have been moving house over the last 4 or 5 days and I have been flat out doing so much stuff. So I am really tired.

But I just left my old house in the car and something I had loaded into the car squeaked and I had a weird feeling and went dizzy for probably 5-10 seconds and driving and turning was difficult. Then I started to sweat and my legs went numb for about 5 seconds maybe. Then the dread feeling came and I thought I was having a heart attack or something.

I couldn't find my propranolol 40mg as there is stuff everywhere. All I could find was some 80mg slow release. I know I shouldn't take something different but I am desperate.

I guess I am looking for some reassurance that I am not dying Basically and has anyone experienced a noise or a trigger that has set them off?

I am Autistic as well so I could have sensitivity to sounds because of that but I never noticed that I did before.

Thanks so much for reading and for any help or support.

Dan

I'm sorry I don't know but if you were seriously ill, I doubt it would have eased.

heart attacks, aneurysms etc seem to be sudden deaths like Chris Eubanks son.

Thank you for the replies. Really appreciate it. I am feeling ok this morning but a bit off still but it normally takes me a week or so to get back to near normal after a panic attack.

I think I have run myself down moving house. It's been hot as well and not getting enough sleep.

I feel guilty when I think something could be wrong with me because there is people that actually do but that's just how it feels to me at the time.
