[QUOTE=AznMax]I have couple of question to ask to my fellow sufferers.

1) How does your panic attack begin? Any bodily sensation? Thoughts? Mine begins with (headache) numbness or heavy feelings inside of my head. If I start concentrating on these sensations, I start having hot flashes inside my head and chest area. Then Panic begins.....


2) How do you feel after a panic attack? Does your body return to normal state? I feel like I am about to have another...which makes me feel very anxious and jumpy all day. Sometime, I get this headache (air head feeling) that last for couple of days, even when I am calm. I hate this....[/QUOTE]

AznMax,
Thankfully, I haven't had a full blown attack in awhile now, but most of my attacks usually start with a feeling like I'm going to pass out. I start to obsess about this feeling and then I panic. My most recent attacks have started with a tingling sensation over my face and scalp. It's the weirdest feeling-it almost feels like my head is asleep. And then, of course, I panic.

After a panic attack, I am usually very tired and have a dull headache. A lot of times, I will feel like I'm on the verge of having another attack for days.

Oh, another thing I sometimes experience is a metallic taste in my mouth right before an attack.

OMG! It is so weird that you said this! I get this too. I forgot all about that metallic taste. I hate it. I start freaking out when I taste this and then my lips feel like they are going numb. How weird.

For me, it starts mostly at night when I'm sleeping. I wake up with this scared feeling and a weird feeling over my skin. I so hate that feeling. That is also what freaks me out and gets me right into a full blown attack. Then I get lightheaded and dizzy. I think it's worse for me cause I'm coming out of a sleep scared to death. I usually sit up real quick or stand up which makes it worse. Then I start feeling nauseted and have to vomit. My ears feel full too. Almost like they are burning. It's the skin feeling that I hate the most though.

I'm glad someone here has that metallic taste like me. The doctor thinks I'm nuts when I tell him this.
