Panic Attacks

#1
Hi all, this is hard to say without sounding a little crazy, but i have a bit of an issue. less then a month ago or maybe a bit longer i started to have pretty severe panic attacks. nothing has changed in my life and im a pretty happy person. Does anyone know if this is a side effect of xenical because i really need to sort this out?:cry:

this doesnt sounds like xenical to me.

how do you feel when this is happening? how long does it last? what does your heart feel like?

over the last 6 months or so,ive not had panic attacks, but all of a sudden my heart would suddenly start racing.

i think its important that you get this checked at your doctor,get your blood pressure checked too.

this could be down to anxiety,but unconsciously

I feel my heart racing all of a sudden, and feel like i could faint if i focus too much, cant breathe, and start panicing that im going to have a heart attack of go insane or something. very bizzare. i have never had anything like this before, i may go to the doctor on wednesday about it

that sounds very similar to what i was having, but it was nothing to do with the xenical in my case as i wasnt on it at that time.

i wasnt worrying at the time, i was usually relaxed watching the tv and my heart would pound, race and feel awkward and irregular, i was do deep breathing while this went on to calm my heart and myself...

it wasnt never a panic attack,but it worried when it happend.

if what you were having was a panic attack,something would happen to trigger it.

mention it to your doctor when you go.

it is scary and to be honest,when it happens i do feel like grabbing my phone, just in case.

it hasnt happened for a few weeks now, but i was getting them so often that i had to calm myself down other wise i would just make myself worse...im not sure why it was happening,but being over weight doesnt help.

take care!

Yeah it quite a common thing celtgirl, it is a very scary situation. Try relaxation techniques before you sleep, it works for me. It might put your mind at rest just to mention it to the doctor :) Take care love xxx

Hiya hun

Sorry to hear you're going through this, I have personal experience of anxiety and panic attacks so can sympathise. I don't think it's the xenical but as you say nothing else has changed so it is a possibility. Good luck at the doctors today.

If you want to chat feel free to send me a pm:) xxx
