I have what I think are small panic attacks. I get extremely freaked out, but I wouldn't call it panic attack. Well Sunday after leaving the gas station I had a long wait to get on the road. It's a 4 lane with heavy traffic. And I had a few people behind me. That made me nervous and I misjudged a few times and could have gone. After about 5 minutes of waiting I got extremely nervous, sweating, breathing hard, and dizzy. I felt like I had lost it and just wanted to get out of the car. It was like I was somewhere else and couldn't get out of a bad dream. I came extremely close to just running out of my car. I just took my chances and gunned it. Almost wrecked because I cut it so close to the cars coming. Was that a panick attack? I've never experienced that. This was on day day 5 of xanax and day 3 of paxil.
