    Well, this is my first time posting in this forum, so here goes...

    Recently I have noticed that when I am in situations where I am uncomfortable I act different. E.g. on my school achievement afternoon when I had to go on stage to collect my trophy, my hands were sweating, my hands were literally shaking when I shook the governer's hand (who was presenting it to me).

    I also notice that in these type of situations, (yes, i know it is weird) my eyes go watery.

    I don't know what is wrong with me :confused:

    I used to have the same problem. How old are you? I put it down, now, in retrospect to excessive self-consciousness due to being a teen. and all that.

    Doesn't bother me at all any more.

    I wouldn't say it's a panic attack - I think they're a little more extreme, at least in my experience.
    I'd say it's just nerves really, you might just be one of the unlucky ones who has more physically obvious symptoms than others, heh.
    Here is a good list of the symptoms you'd normally get with an actual panic attack:

    You only seemed to mention two in your post so I wouldn't worry about it. Just try and drink water and relax when you feel like that.

    I wouldn't worry about it. Obviously its not a panic attack. They are a lot worse (this is from experience!). Generally, the eyes watering thing I used to have the same thing but I never heard of it before, its just nervousness I think. Try to relax. :cool:

    What you had wasn't a panic attack, you'd know.
    I'd put that down to nervousness and general understandable anxiety.

    I used to get that when I was nervous in lessons, thought it would seem like I was crying, but it mainly stopped when I stopped thinking about it.
