    Could be, could be something else, best get things like that checked out.

    :yes: it is a sensible idea to go to see someone about this lil_krissy. It could be a panic attack, but as G-Raffe said it could be something else too, so best to talk about it with a GP.

    Are you feeling particularly stressed at the moment, or have things on your mind that are worrying you and could be leading to your feeling a sense of panic? There is some good information on TheSite about panic attacks and how to manage and try to reduce them. It's really important to be eating and sleeping properly and make sure you have some relaxation time.

    Having said that it is still really advisable to get it checked out. Do you think you could book an appointment and speak to a Doctor about it?
