When I experienced my panic attack, I had dizziness, heart palpitation, fatigue and rapid breathing. Although I've never experienced a heart attack, I think it feels similar to one.
Feeling like you need air. Sweat Fast Heart Beating Dizziness Fuzzy sight Thoughts of death Nothing make sense.
Well their are symptoms for diffrent people. But for many it is a speeding up of you heart and breath. Somtimes you can get shaky and dizzy.
Panic attacks can have several different symptoms. Initially you think of hyperventilating, hysterical crying, that sort of thing. Still, panic attacks begin when your brain is convinced that it is in danger. Due to this, your "flight-or-fight" response is triggered. In other words, it really depends on the situation on which symptoms show up. Sometimes it's having trouble breathing, shaking, rapid heart beat. While some people may experience a rapid heart beat, sweating, becoming pale and just freezing in place. It really just depends on the person and the situation.
The main symptoms of panic attacks are... 1)sweaty palms/hands 2)fast heart rate/pulse 3)heavy and fast breathing 4) shakiness 5)sweating
Spike in adrenaline, fear or stress in no prewarning if this was not the first PA. Regular medications are not effective, a benzodiazapam will help calm the attack. Racing thoughts and psychosis are accomanied during and after a PA. Heart palpatations are prevelant and so are thoughts of dying from the PA.
Sweaty palms Shaking Raspy breathing Crying Confusion Those are some that I have experienced when I have a panic attack
You feel:Short and rapid of breathes, constricted chest, hight levels of anxiety, sweaty, rapid heart beat
dizziness, hyperventilation, fear, shakiness, crying, thats they kind of thing i experienced and i know those are common symptoms, a lot of people also get the feeling in particular situations (i got them in lines when buying things in shops)
Increased Heart rate. Sweating. Anxiety. Feels like your chest is caving in. Shaky. Uncontrollable crying. Tense muscles.
For me, I either completely shut down and don't talk or move, or I hyperventilate, cry, and go numb. Accompanied by 'thoughts of doom.'
Heart palpitations, sweating, trembling/shaking, tightness in chest (hard to breath), feeling nervous and or scared.

From my personal experience, i'd say obviously an overwhelming amount of a panic feeling which is kind of like fear, heart racing/Difficulty in breathing, very tensed up muscles and the need to "get away" from whichever situation you are currently in. Although a lot of people can have more, less, or different symptoms.
Panic attacks symptoms vary between different people. The most commonly shared ones are the shortness of breathe, shaking or trembling, sweating, feeling like you have an upset stomach, possible chest pain. Aside from the physical symptoms, mental symptoms feel like you're detached in your situations and you need to get out.

For me its flashbacks, hyperventilation, rapid heart rate, and shaking. I've thrown up maybe 2 or 3 times. Afterwards I just feel completely exhausted like I just ran a marathon.
Feeling like you can't breathe, not being able to control your emotions. Personally I also get a weird symptom where I feel like everything touching me is a bother, and if I'm safe and alone all my clothes comes off till I calm down. It's frightening but you can get past it.
When you experience a panic attack, you might start shaking and hyperventilating. Feeling like you have to force yourself to breathe or become as small as possible
It's different for some people, but you usually can't breathe, your mouth gets really dry and you can get chest pain. Also, you sweat a lot.
