Does anyone ever feel panic when they are experiencing allergies or congestion ? I'm experiencing that right now and I'm hoping to read some of yalls stores or experiences with this.

YES! I get that way a lot. Can you take a Benadryl?

That is what I do and it relaxes me. Check to be sure you can take that if you are taking other Meds. Call your Doctor and or Pharmacist. Smile

What the heck is normal? LOL Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing Laughing

You are not alone. I get that way too. It is annoying!

Like a panicky feeling then do you ever feel like your throat is like closing? Dizzy

I get that way and then I try to work on my breathing and I take a Benadryl.

You are not alone sweetie. We are all in this together! Kissing

Mandieo, that is so normal it's incredible. The mind is a strong thing and that is not always good. When you don't feel well,you will tend to think everything is a panic attack. I have done that so many times. Be smarter than I am (be quiet Angel! lol). I finally learned that. Here is a conversation that has played out in my own mind many times. "I don't feel well. This is another panic attack!! I am so over this! Wait a second. I really don't feel well. Maybe I am just sick! I feel crappy, but no, it isn't a panic attack! Yay!" Pretty silly, huh?

Yes Kildare you're so right! Everything feels like an attack. It's so weird the things our minds tell us..,.

When I am sick with a cold or have congestion my heart will go fast and yes I will have anixety. I seem to be the most sensitive to any little thing too while sick. And with allergies. I think allergies make us super sensitive to anxiety too.

And I want to add that I am the same way you are. WHen I here that I am not alone and other people feel the same things as me with the anxiety I get so releived because it assures me that I am ok. Because they are ok. Even though we don't feel ok. Smile
