I had similar problems when I was 17. Mine would come on mostly by cigarettes and caffeine. I endured them for decades without seeking any medical help, and I did not suffer any worsening health because of them. In fact, I continued to smoke and drink coffee and soda, and I loved to eat chocolate!
I am not saying that I was smart or wise ignoring it, I am just relating my own personal experiences.
I called my parents and they said it might have been a panic attack,
You might ask your parents for more info. For instance, what do they mean by "panic attack"? What do they think caused you to suffer from a "panic attack" and how would you avoid another panic attack in the future? How often would they expect you to have one of these things?
Any advice...I didn't have any caffeine, I was calm playing XBox, I don't do drugs, what the heck happened? |
Do you smoke? Do you eat or drink chocolate? Did you work with any chemicals that morning? Do you eat a lot of sweets?
Do you have allergies? You could have had an allergic reaction to certain foods, drinks or various allergens.
Something stimulated your metabolism causing your adrenals to pump extra hormones into your body, like adrenalin, which stimulates the heart. These extra hormones can also make one feel sick as a dog.
