I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this, but I noticed someone else posted a topic on dyslexia in here. I'm kind of a newb here and mostly lurk the relativity, and brain teasers forums, so I apologize if this is the wrong place. Anyways, I've been having problems with panic attacks especially the past 2 weeks. I think I might have social anxiety disorder. I had a panic attack last night at the movies. We were watching Saw II and the theater was packed. I was sitting next to my friend Filly and some random guy I didn't know. My other friends had to split up because we couldn't find 4 seats next to each other. After the opening scene finished and this guys gets a bunch of nails in his face I started feeling really weird. Then I blacked out and had a cool out of body expierence. Then I had a terrible hot flash and started sweating even though it was pretty cold in the theater. I also had a panic attack at work the other day. I work at a chinese resteraunt, so I just went to the back and layed my head down on the table since we weren't busy anyways. I also almost had one at school last week but left and skipped 2 of my classes. I also recall a time I passed out for no apparent reason in 7th grade, and we never figured out why. I think it may have been a panic attack, although I remember it feeling different. It was a long time ago so I can't really be sure. The reason I think it's social anxiety is because I've always been shy, always been a loner, my friends say I'm anti-social, and I've been known to get really nervous and sweat when out in public. I actually prefer to goto the movies during the week because theres less people. I hate concerts or anything with a large amount of people. I also ramble and mumble stuff when I'm nervous. Anyone else have these problems? How am I suppose to deal with it? Would you suggest I hit up the doctor for more information? For anyone who actually read this I appreciate any input, seeing as how this could be a serious problem at my age. EDIT: Sorry I forgot to include that I'm 19.
