When it comes to a P T S D panic attack I do not pass out. Through out the panic attack my shortness of breath and pounding heart makes me feel like I am about to have a heart attack but I have learned how to slow my breathing, refocus, and eventually calm myself. Some are harder than others, but eventually I am able to get it together and calm my nerves and breathing. I have had a few instances in the past where I did feel like I was going to pass out but I have never had that experience.
