hospital says I had a "panic attack"

I went to a great New Years party package at a hotel. We had a great time. My Husband and I went to bed. The next thing that was really clear to me is that it was hours later and a nurse was telling me I could wake up and leave the hospital. I had been taken there by ambulance. I remember brief sketchy moments, that's all. My husband says I woke him struggling to breath. He could understand nothing I could say. It was all gibberish except I was grabbing my throat and saying "tight". I was making gasping growling sounds. The next day my throat was painful.
The hospital did bloodwork and a ct of my head and a cardiac workup, even checked to see if someone slipped something into a drink (I remember nothing of this). I did have alcohol that night, but was not drunken. Was feeling fine. I don't know what they gave me at the hospital, but I felt really drugged. My husband thought I was dying.
I can't even give a list of symptoms. I have no memory. Really afraid of something like this happening again. Is this a panic attack? Really?

Re: hospital says I had a "panic attack"

wow, what memories ur story brings back ... 14 yrs ago, I had almost the same experience ... I remember the feeling of not being able to breath right, trip to er ... they too said a panic attack, and they too gave me something that made me feel so drugged out ... since then, I have worried about it happening again ... it is a horrible cycle ... I am now in perio menopause and I have had anxiety attacks, but not that severe anymore, thankfully ... go to ur reg dr and maybe he can give u advice ... sounds like a bad panic attack, but not being a dr, I can only tell u of my experience ... dont give up, there is help out there, we just have to find it ... hope u have a good day today!!!

Re: hospital says I had a "panic attack"

having never had one before, I can only tell you what I have heard others say that is a terrible feeling of not being able to breath. Go to your doc. If it IS a panic attack issue he/she should be able to give you something that will help if it happens again...something to help keep you calm.
