Yikes! Panic attacks aren’t fun. I’ve never had them but my older sister who is 19 (she doesn’t have PKU) started getting them about 3 weeks before she started college…she was really stressing about college. Anyway, I remember atleast 2 nights she litertally woke me up in the middle of the night because she was crying and freaking out and needed me to calm her down. nBreanna
