Last night I had quite a long seizure about 6 minutes so was carted off to the hospital feeling the usual post seizure self.
Went into the MRI and that’s when it hit, I was sweating, couldn’t get any air in. It was awful!!
I’ve lost count of the amount of mris I’ve had, they’ve never bothered me before, has anyone else any experience of a totally random panic attack.
I’m usually quite chill as well.
I have had 2 random panic attacks over the years. The one that stands out to me is when my mom and I went out black Friday shopping. We were going to a store for 2 video games and the people where nuts. I just stood there and could breathe couldn’t move was like omg I need to get out of here but unable to move. My mom had to pull me out of the crowd of people. Now I just get anxiety in big crowds so I stay out of big areas and stay to myself. Just never know when an attack, seizure or anything can happen to us. It can be scary but we still have to try and live our lives as normal as we can. Glad your good and remember to smile everyday!!!
Thanks for the reply, it was so random and out of the blue! Now I’ve got the fear of having another one. Like you said, at least we are still living life and are able to smile!!!
Weird you say that after 6+ years post surgery and countless MRI’s the last one i had this year in July i to had a panic attack and the same thing happened to me… like you also i dont fear doing them but it was very random… i think at times we overwork ourselves up without realizing and we can only take so much mentally… I got through it on my own terms in my mind and thought to myself cmon now youve done this millions of times just get it over and done with… God bless!
HI there i am mom to a 27 yr old son COLTEN who has a AVM on the right side of head he was to have radiation on october 4th had a really bad panic attack broke out in tears and took off from me is afraid but i am there for him emotionallly as well as financially as he lost hisjob due to medical reasons and waiting for SSI OR SSD. i am tryin to cope the best i can but feel like he doesnt appreciate me or what i do any suggestions anyone??
Will he talk to anyone? Family friend or a thearpist? Possibly even come on here? We have all literally been where he is and can help him with any worries or concerns he is struggling with!
he is seeing a therapist so hopefuly that will help radiation is rescheduled for the 25 of octber
Hi, I was in a similar situation in the beginning, except I was in your sons position. I pushed people away because I thought it was best, then I’d go off on them if I had a hard time because they didn’t know how I felt. All I can say is that it’s a very scary, confusing time for him and fear makes us irrational. It must be so hard for you to be trying so hard to make everything work and getting no appreciation whatsoever, but he does appreciate it, it’s just so hard in the beginning.
If you or him ever want to talk just give me a message.
This site has helped me loads. It’s amazing what a quick chat with a stranger can do when you’re feeling a bit down.
Thx Lesley F71

Hey pamm, sorry for the late reply been in and out of hospital all week. That must be so frustrating that his treatments been put on hold, do you know when the insurance will come through? It really sounds like you have a whole bunch of stuff going on at the moment. Sometimes the sh*t all hits the fan at once!!! I hope you can try and take some time for yourself to relax! Even if it’s just half an hour reading or going outside for a bit. Something just for you! Xx
