Do you know now?😊

Imagine if you will, someone creeping up behind you and shouting (((BOO!!))) in your ear...
You no that sudden breathless shock that smacks you in the face... Makes your heart race, and you feel disorientated and a bit queazy...
Now imagine that lasting for an hour or two or all day or for days at a times, suddenly coming on from nowhere , that's anxiety attacks... They could be more mild or more sever ...
Other symptoms are hot sweats or cold shivers, dizziness, inability to sit still, pale clammy complexion ... And vomiting or feeling sick...

Anxiety attacks are physical symptoms (like sudden fear) mostly caused by psychological stress. I'm having one now unfortunately due to my sleep apnea and fear of dying in my sleep before I can get treatment.
