last summer i had the worst summer of my life it all started with sinus type pressure in my head,jaw pain like tmj,neck soreness,back soreness,migraines,stomach aches,nausea...anyways long story short i went through a billion tests and everything came back ok...ct scan of my neck,my head,my jaw,my sinus,mri of my brain cause of the migraines and nothing was conclusive...i did allot more tests but quite frankly forgot them all...anyways so i narrowed it down to stress or anxiety related because in all honesty i'm a very stressed person but for nothing i find things to obsess and stress about...so after taking a billion pills nothing seemed to work and some symptoms disappeared and other didnt....yesterday like a couple of months ago i had the scariest "panic attack: ever!!!! i was sitting in a restaurant and all of a sudden
i started feeling really nauseous and all of a sudden boom i started panicking and thinking i was going to faint...theres more but no more room to write more info

Anxiety and Stress Answer A7030
I'm not sure what your question is but I am assuming you want help with your panic attacks. If not, please reply with a direct question.It seems from your description that you have been feeling anxious and may have had a panic attack recently.
A panic attack usually occurs without warning and is accompanied by a number of physical symptoms of anxiety, including but not limited to difficulty breathing, dizziness, racing heart, sweating, chills, feelings of terror, and feeling like you are going crazy or about to die. From what you describe, you may be experiencing either a panic attack or a symptom of a medical condition. Your doctor needs to rule out medical conditions first. If the doctor determines that the cause of your symptoms is anxiety, evidence has shown panic disorder to be highly treatable with cognitive-behavioral treatment. If you are diagnosed with panic disorder (panic attacks with a fear of having them), you might consider finding a therapist who specializes in providing cognitive-behavioral treatment.
