DxD Admin from Singapore asked a question

Should I go to a doctor for a panic attack?

I think had a panic attack while in class. I started feeling anxious and stressed out of nowhere so i told my classmate and she said my face was very red. She had to remind me to breathe cause i wasn’t. I started hyperventilate slightly and she had to go call our teacher. My mouth started getting tingly and numb then my whole face then body, i was sweating alot and couldn’t stand. I dont think it lasted that long. Maybe 5-10 minutes. My teacher said i should go consult a doctor, but should i really?

Hi there, your description does sound typical of a panic attack.

Hyperventilating will make your symptoms worse, as well as cause the tingling and numbness that you’ve described. Try to consciously slow down your breathing for about 20 minutes the next time it occurs.

Panic attacks are usually completely harmless, although there are other conditions that can mimic these symptoms.

This is especially applicable if you have a family history of heart or thyroid problems, or feel that you have an irregular heart beat.

As it’s your first panic attack, it’s worthwhile going to your GP to have it checked out.

He can do the necessary tests and refer you on to see another doctor if needed, including a psychologist or psychiatrist.

Your doctor will also be able to better explain your condition, how best to prevent its recurrence, and what to do in the event of another attack.

Cheers
