Is it normal to have a "body" panic attack (is that what you call it? your body is freaking out but your mind wasn't beforehand?) and then feel the aftermath for days? I had the right side of my body go numb-ish, weak, and hot for 10 minutes a few days ago, and my right arm, hand, and leg have been feeling sore, fatigued, and sometimes hurt ever since.

      I have had this happen! Like all the sudden I can't breath and my heart is racing even though I thought I was doing fine!

      This is the only way I experience panic attacks, my whole body gets numb and tingly and I start to heavily dissociate

      This is day 4 of still feeling the after affects in my right side. I've never felt the after affects for this long!

      I have had this! only it happened every day for 2 years. I learned to deal with it but I’m happy I didn’t get all doped on meds. Made some life changes went where I knew I’d be happy. Haven’t had many since.

        @KratomEater I'm going on 10 months. It doesn't happen every single day, sometimes I get relief, but it had happened every day this passed month 🥲

      Panic attacks are also a physiological condition, not to be confused with anxiety attacks

        @WeirdNerd I haven't been exactly diagnosed yet. I have an appt with a psychiatrist for the first time on Tuesday, but every doctor I've talked to and my therapist say it's panic attacks.

      YES!! Personally it gets on my nerves, haha. I've had panic attacks while trying to relax in a hot bath. Quite ironic if you ask me!

        @WeirdNerd mine hit out of nowhere! I'll be walking around the store, watching TV, or just playing on the floor with my son. Then BAM all my symptoms hit, and I feel like I'm dying.

      yes that’s totally normal! My body often panics even when my brain seems to be doing fine because of triggers that the body isn’t quite passed handling even when the mind is. The best thing i can recommend is finding calming activities that you can use to relax your body when this happens (i.e. breathing, meditation, joint massages, etc.). i hope this helped :)

        @gloomie Thank you! That makes me feel better. All of my panic attacks are in the body and not the mind. It's been happening since my 3rd trimester, and now I'm 7 months post partum, and it's just gotten worse and worse. This past month has been every single day, and it's been preventing me from going out and even driving. It's been out of nowhere. I've had the right side of me go numb like that before, but never that bad, and this after affect had me honestly worried.

          @JadynStorm i typically use the in for 5 hold for 5 out for 5 breathing technique when im driving and that usually helps my muscles relax a bit :)
