im not sure

From: debbie


i came apon this site when searching for what might be happening to me....many times i feel as if someone has come up behind me and scared me my heart will race and it will happen so fast i cant even get my breathing under controll...the anxiaty attack will then within seconds take me to the point of passing out...sometimes i have sat down and fought it off but many times it hits when driving...and this scares me to no end just last week i had to pull over three times at the third time i blacked out for just a second (thankfully had the car in park) im terrified to get behind the wheel now...and will only do so if im not alone ...this will not work for me though i have to work and help support my family that means i have to be able to drive!! i dont know what to do i have set up a apointment with my MD...and hope she will have some help for me...but when i read your site i relized maybe it isnt anxiaty i have never had a prob with anxiaty before in my life...however i did have a hysterectomy a year and a half ago and these symtoms started around aug of this year ....
