Default A lil story and some questions

On sunday I went for a ride with my brother and his friend. On the way back home my chest started to hurt, I didn't really think much of it until it started to feel like my heart was going fast and it hurt. Felt like I couldn't breathe and my hand tingled and I felt hot and was sweating. I told my brothers friend what was going on and they rushed me to the hospital by the time i got there it was pretty much died down and I felt stupid for being there. The doctor looked at my blood pressure, and temperture. Turns out both were high, and I ended up having to stay the night. They gave me some pill to help lower my blood pressure and they also given me a pill called clonazepam. The next day they started doing tests on me, and I had to stay another night. During the night the same thing happened, but It didnt last as long and so, the doctor ended up increasing the clonazepam and keeping me another day. The next night i woke up and my chest felt like that again but it didnt last long, and I didnt want to say anything to the nurses because..well I just wanted to go home, I'm not sure if I should of done that but I dont like hospitals and I didnt want the doctor to try increasing the dosage because of how it made me feel. Anyway thats my lil story of the current event that happened to me but...last yr I had my 1st panic attack and it was far worse than this and also different. I'm not sure if panic attacks r always the same...or could be diferent. I've been put on wellbutrin xl (i think thats right) by another doctor and told me that I should help with my anxiety. So pretty much...I want to know if panic attacks r the same everytime?...or if they could be different?...Also if taking clonazepam and wellbutrin xl would actually help?...I'm still not sure how to handle them on my own, I dont really have anyone to talk too about them. I would hope for someone to help clear some stuff up for me because at the moment...I'm just scared and not really sure whats going on.

that sounds scary... sorry im unable to answer your question as i dont have panic attacks, and altho u hate hospitals i think u should tell the docs again if it continues... so they can keep an eye on you and monitor it...and they can do whatever they feel is best to help you. if u are honest with them they can help you better and hopefully make these moments stop
