Attack?

Hey doc,

About an hour ago I experienced pressure in my chest and i immediately started losing my vision and having shortness of breath. I couldn''t stand and felt like I was fainting. Could this have been a mild heart attack or panic Attack? Should I go get it checked out? I feel completely fine now. I''m 19 And female

Hallo Teela
It sounds as if it could have been a panic attack but if you are not feeling well, rather go to an emergency unit for an ECG and checkup
