panicking over things like feeling sick watch

    Im comming up to my mid twenties now and I still get very panicky and feel like crying at things like going dizzy, feeling/being sick, period pain It just makes me all restless and results in me having a panic attack. Ive never been drunk Ive no idea how Id cope with that people just seem so calm when these things happen to them but I can't stand feeling/being ill. Unless its something like a cold. I remember as a kid I used to panic and think that I would stop breathing. Ive fainted several times for various reasons and comming round to consciousness was for me one of the worst feelings ever Ive had a phobia of faintng or going out on a period (which is what caused the cramps fainting) ever since.

    In other ways Im quite tough I go to the gym and run and can stand this type of pain but Ive no idea why I feel all trembly and panicky when I have period cramps. Its not something I can help its not like a conscious phobia its just my body goes all panicky and trembly. I don't know how I'l cope when I have to live on my own or say in old age when my mum (who happens to be a nurse) isn't around to help.

    I know it sounds pathetic but Ive always been like this I want to know though do most people get the trembly/panicky horrible feelings when feeling sick/on a period but just think 'oh well' and some how cope with them or do you not feel panicky in the first place:confused:

    I sit for around three hours every Saturday and Sunday morning worrying that I'm going to be sick.

    It's probably normal.
