From: Carey Corbin, female, age 31


I believe I may h ave suffered from this earlier today. My symptoms the same as above, but I did not pass out or become unconsious. I also jsut ened my menstrual cycle yesterday. I went to the ER, but was told that I may have a bit of the stomach flu and may have "hyperventilated" which caused me to go into a panic and/or anxiety attack. Which I believe is incorrect. This was different from a anxiety attack. I was unable to move my arms and legs, I was unable to talk or move my tongue, My hands and arms were constricted, and I was sweating profusely. Any suggestions? I am scared that this may happen again.
