10th grade terror :O

i'm new here but it always helps to share your stories and i got some time to kill :P

i was in 10th grade, 16 at the time and i had just come back from lunch to my western civ. class. i remember getting a test handed out to us, i looked down at the test and all of a sudden felt a sharp pain in my kneck (which i'm farily sure was just a cramp) and it escalated from there -- i had a copper taste in my mouth for a second and started freaking out.

i thought i was having a stroke. i remember being stricken with such terror i couldn't even move and i looked over at my friend in the desk next to me and he goes "whoa you dont look so good." so naturally i asked to go to the nurse without causing too big a scene. the journey down the hallway seemed forever, i passed a friend , once again "wow you look really white."

i finally arrive at the nurses, they lay me down on the crappy little bed, and take my blood pressure -- 190/110. i remember my father coming in and asking if i wanted an ambulance, which of course i said no and just wanted him to bring me to the walk-in...the whole time i kept thinking something is wrong with my brain, saying it over and over to my dad. after a long time in the waiting room i get sent in, they take some more readings and tests, eventually i get sent to the general hospital

<edited: do not post real names or location such as hospital name.>

keep in mind, this whole thing went on for like 8 hours i was so freaked out. they take an MRI, all sorts of other stuff -- everything turns out normal. i thought this was pretty funny -- the doctor asked if i had been doing cocaine at all that day. long story short, crappiest scariest most terrifying day of my life (and i've been in the military!).

i didn't feel the same for weeks after that, losing tons of sleep, and so focused on thinking i was dying that i'd keep giving myself panic attacks. i still suffer and deal with anxiety to this day from it, but i think i'm learning to cope a little bit -- i was put on paxil but took myself off of it because i felt it made me act out and made me a different person. i just wish there was an easy button to hit and get rid of all this
