Yes, I have the same feeling when in large crowds. In fact at a political rally in the 70's was one of the first times I fainted (actually right afterwards when I was home). At state fairs and even in crowded museums I would lose track of one of my kids for a second and would have what was probably a panic attack but I think was also related to the sheer number of people around. Even when there is no reason for a panic attack I get symptoms that a something like the ones before a VV episode but mostly if I drink water and sit down for a while I am fine.
