I was getting ready for bed, washed my face, brushed my teeth, then went to the loo. Then I sat in bed for a bit reading a book because I wasn't sleepy.
5 mins later I had this really bad pain down below, like a burning sensation, like I needed the loo again. I went but nothing came out even though I felt that I really needed to pee. It was really itchy too but obv couldn't itch it because it really hurt. I went back in bed and started shaking, or trembling uncontrollably, it was like intense shivering but I wasn't cold at all. I put the duvet round me but it didn't help. It was mainly my legs arms and chest which was shaking it was really strange. I could breathe ok though.
I think it was a panic attack, because I tremble uncontrollably when I have had panic attacks in the past. But I haven't had a panic attack in ages, and when I've had them in the past, my mind goes crazy and it takes me ages to calm down. Mainly because I have emetophobia (fear of vomiting) but last night I didn't feel nauseous or sick at all. I felt normal apart from the really bad pain down below and the trembling/shaking.
But is it normal to have that pain during a panic attack?
You know that really sounds like something you need to talk to your doctor about, not to trust the unprofessional opinions of internet folk...
I'd see the doctor for a urine test. It sounds like you may have a urine infection which would be easily treated. If you take a sample with you they can often do a dip stick test there and then.
You can also discuss your other concerns when you are there.
Hope you feel better soon.
