Why am I having panic or anxiety attacks?

Every once and a while I'll have panic attack; they'll usually happen in a crowded hall way, particularly at school. (It's not only in hall ways and it's not only at school.) There's one hallway where it's occurred the most. More than once I've had to duck into the restroom to calm myself down. They've been becoming more frequent. A teacher saw me today and sent me to the nurse. So, why am I have these panic attacks? What can I do to avoid them?

Well apparently it has to do with large crowds. First you should see the doctor, yes the doctor. Then from there he will gude you but for now try to avoid large crowds and getting scared, this will make one happen. It could also be linked to stress or loss of someone close.

Looks like you might be claustrophobic. You should go seek help from a doctor

have you described these attacks to a professional,someone that determine whether or not they're really panic attacks? the reason I ask is that I'm under the impression that panic attacks aren't dependant on location. you may find an easier way through this if you know exactly what you're dealing with. whatever these turn out to be, I hope you can find your way through quickly. good luck

Most likely you are stressed. So when you have the time relax listen to some music that you like it helps for me and hopefully for you good luck.
