Re: Please read. Could you please tell me if this has happened to you!
Okay, my Dr was telling me why sometimes when I have a panic attack I feeli like I am going to pass out. It's due to breathing too fast and blowing off too much carbon dioxide.
She said that it could even be so bad that, get this, your hands can turn inwards and get stuck like that and will stay there until your carbon dioxide level is restored. I kid you not. Your probably breathing so fast that you are releasing too much carbon dioxide.
Try beathing in a paper bag, I myself breath in for 3 seconds, hold it for 2-3 seconds, then release for 3 seconds. Then repeat.
She demonstrated what it looks like, and it's exactly how your describing.
