What Was This?

I've had a stressful day I will admit that. But today I was out with my friends and I suddenly felt weak, heavy and shaky. My heart was going pretty damn fast too. I felt as though I would pass out any minute and my vision was disturbed. I was also overheating quite a bit.

I know these seem like classic symptoms of hypoglycaemia but I'd just eaten

Any ideas as to what this was? I am posting here because I suspect it is anxiety but just would like confirmation.
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell.

Re: What Was This?

It absolutley sounds like a panic attack of some kind. For me, when I go through a stressful situation, a couple of days later, I can get a PA or really bad IBS. K can always get through the situation, but I take a toll days later. You have never had this before?

Hi dizzygirl,

I have panic attacks, but they always felt soo much different to this. I kind of suspected a panic attack because I was under stress and it felt so awful. My panic attacks were always more like they were pumping me full of energy rather than making me feel like I was going to faint any minute...

If it was a panic attack, that's fine. I'll know for next time not to get scared
I'm not crazy, I'm just a little unwell.
