iliketoads Posted August 6, 2008 Report Share Posted August 6, 2008 Hello.When I was around 6-7 I began to have panic attacks at night. I run around uncontrollably at worst maybe even for an hour and the next night I was afraid to fall asleep. I had them maybe once or twice per week. They ended a few years later but continued a few years later. They ended when I was around 11 or twelve. School stress one of the main causes I believe.I still have them only on an average once or twice a year. While being still extremely unpleasant they fortunately aren't as powerful nowadays. When I have them I have noticed that they strike when I suddenly wake up from deep sleep and am still very dreamy. They do still manage to ruin the following day. I have become very curious of them on an later age. What causes them, why, how to deal with, any related problems etc. Please give me information.I have all the usual symptons such as sweating, dizziness, terror, fear of "going mad" and the feeling of claustrophobia. One of the most interesting and most troubling sympton are visual distorsions. I possibly can't explain it but my vision sort of feels "pixelated" and extremely zoomed & "claustrophobic". Sounds silly, and its not close to what I feel, but thats how I can decribe it at best. Oddly even on my normal state I feel conciderable stress when if for example an highly zoomed picture, in which one can see pixels, projected on an large screen. Same applies to extremely large numbers or letters written on wall. I quess it reminds me of the panic attacks. I would especially want information related to this since it is one of the oddest things related to it. Thanks. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
