Hi boo
I'm very pleased to hear you are feeling much better. Well done. What you describe sounds like a panic attack, which happens out of the blue, and is both unpleasant in itself, but also causes one misery in the way you anticipate and worry about other attacks, which may never even happen. I'm not remembering som of the details --- mwas your Cipramil prescribed by a general ( medical ) physician, or by a psychiatrist ? It sounds as though it'd be sensible at this stage to see a psychiatrist for a formal assessment as regards the posibility of Panic Disorder, and to discuss its traeatments, both medicinal and by CBT
