Do you guys ever get just random panic attacks? It’s been happening a lot recently. It’s not bad, my heart just beats super fast and i can’t breathe. I don’t know what’s causing it but i used to have bad panic attacks when i was a bit younger.. but i’m kinda clueless what causes random panic attacks for no reason??

      Mine are random too. Sometimes it hits during work and it's embarrassing

      If there's no trigger and you don't actually feel panicked (like you're only having the physical symptoms of a panic attack) there's also a chance it could be a heart condition called POTS syndrome. I get the physical symptoms of a panic attack randomly without any actual emotional distress

      Oh yeah. That's basically why my doctor put me on Clonazepam even though the antidepressants significantly reduced them. A lot of my panic attacks are idiopathic and having the PRN helps even if I decide not to take it that time (benzos are known to become less effective if you take them too frequently so when I get a panic attack I have to assess whether or not I think I need it or if I think I can wait it out). Having that control has helped me a lot.

      That's what many of my texts feel like and people always say the wrong thing and ask me what happened and what's wrong and it just frustrates me because I don't have an answer for them. They're also very persistent with the question and they won't stop asking until I break down into tears
