I have had them...I wasn't sure what was going on with me, I thought I was having a heart attack or I was going to die! It a feeling of "doom" total fear...you get sweaty and real nervous for NO reason. They would come and go for for a long time ..probably about 3 months or so..before I actually went into the ER. I just couldn't take it anymore and didn't know what was wrong....they put me on medication, which helped, but it took a while to get over them. What scared me was that the doc. said they usually come back after a year...and I wanted to be off the medication...so thankfully, they stopped and I went off the meds before I got pregnant. ...NOW my fear is that I'll have one or a heart attack or something when I'm in labor! ohhh...I hope not. Hope I explained that well enough .

My first panick attack felt like a heart attack...extreme pain in my chest, breathlessness, and numbness along my arm and shoulder...Consequent ones made me feel like I couldn't face the day, wanted to stay in bed and not deal with anyone or anything, and left me with a complete sense of doom, like life was dark and difficult to handle...It was a difficult period for me and the doctors diagnosed me with post traumatic stress syndrome...Thank God it's now a thing of the past, although I got an attack halfway through my pregnancy because of thoughts of the baby not being healthy...
