I get all shaky and can't think straight. I start breathing heavily and become really pale. Almost everytime I have this overwhelming feeling I'm about to pass out. Not nice, but you can learn how to deal with this.
Troubles with breathing, dizziness, feeling like something is sitting on your chest, high heart bits...
An overwhelming feeling of impeding doom. A feeling of you are going to die or have a medical emergency. Having difficulty breathing. Crying.

Emotionally, panic attacks feel like a suffocating and frantic frenzy of confusion. They feel like a wave of despair and desolation that is inescapable. Physically, symptoms can include rapid or labored breathing, nausea, dizziness, and feeling hot or flushed.
My personal symptoms are very sudden. I tend to get them all at once, overwhelming me. I have very intense sweats and shivers, and some fear because I feel like I'm dying. I feel like my heart is skipping a few beats, and it really freaks me out. I get really shaky and tense, and feel like i'm going to fall over, or maybe pass out.
When I have a panic attack, it's as if I have to just get out of wherever it is that I am. My breathing and heart rate increase, and I feel hot and cold. I don't want anyone to see me like this, even if they wouldn't be able to tell I was in distress. There's pressure in my head, and my vision narrows.

I can say that with my experiences of a panic attack happening the symptoms that occur are increased heart rate, difficulty breathing, chest pain, tightened muscles, thoughts that make me feel like I must be dying, struggle to conversate and ringing in my ears. In every experience I can remember when having a panic attack is that it has just come on so suddenly, without me overthinking anything or anything that I could think of that triggered it. This was the scariest part because it would happen when I really did not plan for it or know it was coming. I hope this helps answer your question(:
