I see that it has been several years since anyone has posted here, but hopefully someone is keeping tabs and will respond.
Alright, I have been having some episodes that I think might be panic attacks, but I'm not sure. During a stressful situation, I will begin to feel a tingling in my chest and a tightening in my stomach. The tingling will move into my face, my legs and down into my fingers, to the point that I cannot move them. I will begin to feel very light headed, get tunnel vision, and become intensely nauseated.
I first began experiencing this about four years ago, and though it was blood sugar, but since it only happens when I'm nervous or scared, I think that it might be a panic attack. Also, it happens mainly when I'm driving, and I'm not sure why. I was in a wreck when I was 7, but it was mild, and I am a safe driver, so I don't know why I would be afraid of driving.
Also, social situations bother me. I don't have quite the same panic attack feeling, but I have an intense fear of throwing up, and am always afraid that I am either going to throw up or pass out, and because of all the people, I will not be able to get to the bathroom fast enough, or I will make a scene.
I also have several other fears, but I think that those two are quite enough for now!
If anyone has any ideas as to what may be causing this, I am open to any suggestions, and just ready to start living a less fearful life!
