Is this what you would call a 'panic' or 'anxiety' attack?

This started about a year ago when I was on the laptop and my friend and I were arguing, ever since then whenever something intimidating happens my heart starts to beat rapidly, I can't breathe, I get extremely cold, and my legs start to shake. Its been happening whenever something small as "something's wrong.." Is said. It bothers me and I need to know if this is a panic attack so I know if I'm having one or not. Please and thank you.

That's exactly what happens to me when I have a panick attack... It's pretty scary but its okay... I would talk to a trusted adult about it and not rely on the Internet because I could be wrong... Most likely I'm not but talk with a doctor or a parent about it and stay safe! The reason I say this is when I had a panick attack I couldn't get enough air through my lungs so I passed out and went to the hospital and I don't want you to have the same thing happen to you.
Best of luck, See More▼

it sounds like a panic attack,

If it is then remember to calm yourself by remembering that you are only having a panic attack and that nothing more serious is happening to you. Continue to take slow, deep, complete breaths. Slow, deep, complete breaths will relax your body
