Sounds like it: The missing usual symptom is the sensation that you are going to die (during attack / as result of it). Unfortunately, only long-term resolution is to address whatever is triggering them. This requires seeing a therapist/psychologist to identify problem. Your dr or a psychiatrist can work with you & therapist to rx meds to reduce severity of symptoms while working on problem. Get seen.
