I've had this anxiety attack for about five days now. At first, I thought I was having a heart attack (which is apparently what most first-time sufferers believe to be having, since the symptoms for a heart attack and an anxiety attack are very, very similar.)
Needless to say, I was pretty frightened about all of this. (And I actually didn't smoke for an entire day which is amazing for me...considering that I always at least have six a day.) Enough to go to the Hospital only to find out, to my discouragement, that they could find nothing wrong with me at all.
These horrible symptoms continued to press me on enough to go to the doctor right the next day, who told me the same damn thing.
After that, I didn't know what the hell to do. I went online and read up a bit more on heart attacks, and found out that heart attack symptoms only last a few hours at the most. ..At this point, my symptoms had already been going on for four consecutive days..so I calmed down a lot.
It's still frightening though. This isn't a fun thing to experience at all. Throughout this miserable short span of time, I've realized how much I take life for granted.
Too lazy to write any more. I hope i'll end up okay.
