even though i at am a very young age i have been having very severe panic/anxiety attacks or whatever the heck you want to call them. i havent been to the doctor yet but the first one i had was the very worst. it was after P.E. that i went into the locker room to change and i started feeling nervous and wanted to cry. and eventually i did cry. i told my friends and they thought i was just joking around until i actually started flipping out. i didnt know what was happening and so i went to the gym teacher after i had gotten dressed. he told me to take a seat in his office but i couldnt stand sitting down. pacing around the room seamed to help but unfortunately i couldnt seem to slow down my breathing. i couldnt inhale all the way either. i know it wasnt asthma but i have had breathing problems in the past. i was crying, i felt faint, and i just wanted to be alone and i couldnt stand to answer anymore questions. i dont know what was setting me off. but ever since then i kept on having these attacks constantly feeling gittery even between these attacks. please can someone tell me what it is? we dont need anymore hospital bills!!View Thread
