Within the past year or something, things have reguarly started happening to me that really scare me, but it doesn't seem bad enough to be an anxiety or panic attack, so I'm really not sure if it's normal or something to seriously worry about. Sometimes it's triggerd by someting in paticular, for example someone critised me in a harsh way, but mostly it just comes crashing in without an apparent reason. Basically I start breathing very fast and short, withou any control over it. It scares me, it feels like I'm suffocating, like I will never be able to calm down again, even though my brain is willing it to stop. I start crying or feel like I'm crying without actual tears coming out. Every bad memory or worry that I have comes up, I try to block it but it doesn't work. I get really, really scared. Usually, this doesn't go on for very long, maybe a few minutes. Only once I could hardly breathe for 20 minutes, but that might just be because I cried so much. After I calm down, I'm ok, but whenever I think about what happend, it comes back and I have to force it down with everything I have. I don't know, it's probably nothing compared to a real panic or anxiety attack, so I feel guilty calling it that, especially because I don't even have a good reason for having this. It's not like anything really traumatic ever happened to me. Does anyone know what is happening and how I can maybe work on it?
