Hey guys. I've had panic attacks since I was little and I'm 15 now. when I was 9 me and my siblings were taken into d.s.s custody and thats when they really started. My biggest fear is not being able to breath and any time I have a panic attack I get problems with my breathing and feel like I'm about to die. Lately it has felt like something is stuck in my throat and I want to know if it's possible that something could really be in my throat or if it's psychological whenever I have my panic attacks and I freak out cause I think I'm going to die or something. I'm hoping for a professional opinion and helpful tips or if anyone can relate to me it would make me feel so much Better to know that I'm not the only one. Thanks guys it would really mean a lot!View Thread
When I have anxiety or my panic attacks what really helps me is taking really really deep breaths and holding them in for a few seconds. And the biggest thing that helps me is talking to somebody about anything to get my mind off of it. And I pray. see when I have my panic attacks I get shaky ands lightheadedness and I feel like I can't breath and like I'm going to die and I just completely freak out.View Thread
