A few years ago, I developed a really, really bad sinus infection which eventually led to surgery to correct the problems. A few months before surgery, and due to the infection, my throat went into spasm and closed completely. I couldn't breathe at all, turned blue and as good as passed out. I ended up going to counselling to try and help get over this and, on the whole, it was fairly successful.

But, a few things have been building up over the last few months, nothing too bad, and I've not had a real holiday this year, so I've felt a bit run down. Anyway, I grow chillis and last week bit into an unlabled once and, f*** me, it was hot. Really hot. And it resulted in me having a massive panic attack. I'm presuming that it had something to do with the choking incident a few years ago and some kind of fear related to that.

Since last week, I've been an absolute wreck. Palpitations, sweating, feeling week, the lot. Today has been the worst day - thought something was stuck in my throat/chest and that I would never be able to eat anything again. That kind of nonsense.

I'm presuming that most people on here have had anxiety attacks at some point (going by the thread on depression a few months ago) - so what worked and what didn't? I can't be having these attacks for much longer, it's doing my head in. I'm still sleeping and all that, but it all feels a bit dark at the moment.

What say you?
