Joyce offered you some good advice. Please do seek help because panic attacks are scary. Fright causes our adrenalin to increase, causing the effect Joyce mentioned, but also causing an increase in BGs. Panic attacks are not going to take your life, but the high pulse rate needs to be slowed and your adrenalin spikes need to be modulated so that your BGs don't go out of control.

If what you are experiencing is a sudden onset of apprehension or fear and it lasts for minutes or up to an hour, it is a panic attack. I use to have them and my therapist helped me with them. I have ended up in the hospital because of them.

You really should talk to your doctor. I wasn't diabetic when I had them so I don't know how they effect blood sugar. Panic attacks can cause rapid heart beat, raise you blood pressure, can cause you to perspire and make you feel as though you are out of control of your body. For me fighting it only made it worse.

Panic attacks are psychologically based and should be monitored by an experienced therapist. They can be brought on by any number of things that could have happened long ago or the recent past. I have been diagnosed as having Post Traumatic Stress Disorder and I would have them to the point I felt as though I was out of control. Seek help. Good luck to you,
