Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Had it since Saturday. Having Anxiety attacks, then randomly in a good mood, my brain feels like it's going on overdrive, constantly feeling like I've been here before. Face muscles contract and relax spuriously, and have thoughts of death.
