I found an article explaining that fibro patients have a different form of panic attacks. and that it will not kill you. and there is a different machine that tests for it. has anyone read that article? my son has been getting bad panic attacks. says that it feels like his heart is beating out his chest. and he feels like he is going to die. just got him diagnosed with fibro. I showed him this article and told him to try and relax and not to run to the hospital. but his friend called the ambulance last week. now I find out it is related to the disease. comes with the territory.
