Default hmmm?

has anyone ever had a choking sensation while having a panic attack? it's weird, i've never had the sensation b4, but it's the 2nd time it's happened. it feels like there are bands (or is it hands?) around my throat... i keep feeling my throat to make sure there isn't anything there... am i just freaking or what?

aw.. I'm sorry bent.. That sounds awful!!! *hugs* Haven't felt like that myself though.. Hmm.. Maybe it has something to do with your breathing? You should tell your doc about it.. I hope you won't experience it anymore.. Maybe some memories has brought something on?

idk, bent, sounds like a feeling I get a lot - start to gag somedays when anything is anywhere near my throat... doesn't even have to touch... it's almost like claustrophobia, but I'm not phobic of that really - except very occasioanlly when I close my eyes, I feel like things are too close, idk.. it's weird...
today I had a loose scarf on... and I had to pull it off.. bc it was happpening again...
does it happen with anxiety? I have no idea... I never thought about it before.. I never had any idea what it related to - or what caused it...
but.. idk if that sound like what you're experiencing at all...
I'm sorry... ((((((((((((HUGS))))))))))))

yeah, i think it is definitely anxiety related. i am definitely claustrophobic too. i can't have anything tight around my neck... when i have this sensation it feels like there is something just draped around my neck and it is just there. it isn't tightening or anything, just... there. idk. very weird. thanks for your replys everyone.

idk dreamer but they are standing behind me. it is a larger person (or i am small) and they are standing with their hands draped around my collarbones with their fingers resting just where their fingertips hit the indentation...i can't remember what it's called...but, you know, the hollow at the bottom of our throats? anyway, it's like they are standing there behind me and they don't want me to go anywhere so they have their hands on my shoulders draped around me so won't leave or w/e
well, anyway...what's this about fire?

bent, I have had that sensation! It feels like you can't breathe! When it happened to me I would fall to the floor and lay on my back and try to breath! It works
