On the verge of a panic attack

Have seen this clip from the Today Show the symptoms of a person having a panic attack.  Shortness of breathe, nausea, tingling of hand fingers, blackouts.  And when I thought of my previous days, those were the very things I had experienced.  Thought it was just the weather, but then, I still don’t know if I have the official panic attack.

Also, they said that panic attacks are easily treated by prozac or any anti-depressants or by going to a therapist.  Well, I’m not a big fan of therapy sessions and I don’t really want to admit that I have a disorder.  But with all the work and the pressure, I think I am on the verge of having one.  Everytime I get out of the house and see the building where my office is located, I feel my heart building up and about to explode in my chest.
