sometimes it's part of a panic disorder: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panic_disorder
sometimes it's part of an anxiety disorder or other mental illness.
its really kind of scarey when you have a panic attack...
I had one...first time ever and my breathing was a bit messed up so it got me worried and made me feel dizzy and then my arms started tingling and my head was spinning and I was shaking like mad and couldnt breathe properly...really scarey and made me almost faint AGAIN
I believe they are feeling anxious and maybe having symptoms of this anxiety. Such as : Shortness of breath, upset stomach, and more serious might be fainting or having bad thoughts.. ect.
wow that sounds scary!! know I know waht will happen if I ever have one.thanks
