I dont know why this happens, when I get tense my mouth goes dry and I can physically feel that my thorat is closing, I then start to panic which makes things worse.

I have read somewhere that this can be used as a diagnostic for CSA, I picked it up from somewhere. I'm sure its learnt behavior but from where?

In the past It has triggered in me a couple of hyperventerlating episodes, they too are also very scary.

Its a bloody frigtening experience I know that. Its nearly as bad as acute alcohol withdrawls where I experienced three nights of withdrawl fits and would stop breathing, my wife had to stay awake for those same three nights.

I dont know if that helps. Im pretty sure its a natuaral reaction to what we all have been through.

I hope the worst of that flashback is over now. They are so real it's like having to live through abuse all over again.

I hope you feel better by now.
