Anxiety Attacks

Never in my life have I had to deal with my anxiety been this bad.

I have always suffered with anxiety but never to the point were I thought I was having a heart attack, as the pain in my chest was so bad I thought I was going to die, my breathing was rapid and hard to find my breathe, and I had this tingying feeling all over my body which almost made feel very numb.

This happened a few weeks ago and I have had another 3 major ones since then and then I have been getting milder forms of that first episode, and then I ended up having a bad one again the other day.

The worse thing about this for me at the minute is I have been seeing a counsellor for my depression and I seem to be getting on a good level with myself and feeling more positive about life and getting back on track with everything.

Then I have this that seems to of come out of nowhere, my first one was when I was in the supermarket getting some shopping, like I do once a week, and in the middle of the supermarket I just rooted to the spot and at first it felt like someone had stabbed me in the chest repeatedly.

My arms automatically went to my chest and everything faded out a little, like I was going to pass out, everyoone around me stopped what they was doing and looked at me. My son was with me and a look of worry washed over his face.

When I satrted to come round from it (it went as quick as it came), some 10/15 minutes later I felt so drained and exhausted from it that when I got back home I went to bed.

Now everytime I leave the house or the thought of leaving the house I can feel the build up of it in my chest and I feel hopeless and I have to wait for it to pass before I can do anything else. Everytime I get this feeling I am tired and drained afterwards and need to sleep.

Does anyone else feel like this with their anxiety?
