At night I have a hard time going to sleep because every time I doze off I jolt up gasping for breath. But now I'm having a hard time breathing while sitting up, it feels like when you get the wind knocked out of you and you're struggling to take a breath and you wheeze kind of... But now also I feel like I'm floating almost, like if I stand up I would fall over, like my body isn't supporting my weight and I feel weak. My throat keeps getting tight when I can't breathe and I'm really starting to worry. Just an FYI I have had a sinus infection the past couple of days and my ears have been draining and stopping up which may be causing the floating feeling. Please help in any way you can thank you!!
Your symptoms sound disturbing and freighting for you.
We are not doctors. Have you discussed this with a doctor? Your symptoms could be from a variety of medical conditions and is best diagnosed by a professional. It would be best if you seek medical attention as soon as possible.
Hope you get some answers soon :)
If your panic attacks are getting worse has your doctor prescribed you anything for them? I take lorazepam ( generic for ativan) helps a lot. I agree you need to see a doctor for the symptoms you are having. I'd go right away. Emergency walk in appointment. There are other drugs for anxiety also. Are you on anything right now?
