Honestly that doesn't really sound like a panic attack. Maybe a phobia though, similar to panic disorder- you're so afraid that you're going to pass out again that you're having the symptoms as though you are going to. Have you seen a psychologist?

Hi Blossom3,

You might have agaraphobia. I had it to.. You will not passout. You just have to walk into the store like as if you had nothing. Relax yourself and you will be fine. I used lorazapem for my anxiety and it worked really well for my dizziness. Now I don't have to use them as much because I feel safe going out. There is nothing wrong with you. Unfornately it happens to so many people. Just start relaxing and you will be fine. It will go away.
