Seizure versus panic: Most panic attacks surface when a person is scared, starts holding their breath, become tearful, and frightened.What can you do? Start with taking deep breaths then the brain will have enough oxygen to do it's best to help you think clearly. I enjoy holding my breath in for 5 to 10 seconds and letting it out in 30 seconds. Seizues have more tightened muscles, including an "aura", and falling.

Simple difference: Tampax is a type of tampon. Playtex is a manufacturer. I think playtex makes tampons called tampex. So, tampon plus playtex =tampex. Get it?
