Anxiety or panic attack
I was recently on a trip in Hawaii. We went to a location to see waterfalls. The area, over a deep cliff, was fenced with very high fences. Just walking closer to the fence I started feeling shakey and light headed. My niece took my hand to draw me closer to the fence to get a better view of the waterfalls. I got lots of shortness of breath, pain in my chest, crying, pulling back and was yelling No. After walking away it took at least 20 minutes to breathe normally and steady my nerves. This has never happened so extremely before. Is it an anxiety or panic attack or is there any difference at all? In April I have my annual medical appointments with my Mayo Clinic doctor team and am wondering if this is worthy of mentioning or not?
I appreciate any comments and suggestions.
