Anxiety Attacks
#1
If someone has the anxiety attack symptoms of heart palpitation, is it normal for them to last the majority of a day? How long does it normally take for them to disappear after an anxiety attack?

Many panic attacks are indisinguishable from heart attacks, even among ER physicians.  Lab tests are required to look for cardiac enzymes.  Unless you have them regularly and are sure it's a panic attacks, go to the ER immediately and complain of chest pains.

If it is a panic attack, obtain Ativan (lorazipam) sublingual tablets.  They dissolve rapidly under the tongue and come in 0.5, 1 or 2mg sizes.

If you have any question, go in to the ER.  Like Allan said, it can be difficult to tell the difference.
