    Today’s panic attack

    Today I felt I can’t breathe and I was breathing but was very aware of my mouth being closed and felt a bit freaked out by this.

    Past few weeks I have worried I will die of some horrible death. Today I worried it was asthma or something? Can anybody reassure me?

    Honestly, it sounds as though you're just overthinking things. When I think about my mouth being closed I suddently find it a bit harder to breathe, too.

    Thanks these flare ups are often when I have too much fizzy drinks. And you are correct when I over think things I become more aware. Problem is was out and felt a bit funny and started to over analyse. Sometimes I get images of me having a heart attack which sort of doesn’t help the anxiety to go away. Sure none of these things may never happen but it’s the anxiety again.

    Which soft drinks do you have? Cola in particular can have quite a lot of caffeine. I had a couple of glasses of Coke Zero today and I really felt it.

    It's horrible when you visualise awful things happening, isn't it?

    Caffeine definitely makes me anxious and panicky, I avoid it as much as I can now, I'd recommend you do the same
