101. I know! I had one, too, and it was on an international flight...
JFK to Finland, so it was one long nightmare. It's a horrible feeling. You feel like you're dying. :scared:

I just desperately had to get off, but I was told that it was six more hours! x(

And I had Xanax, too. I took 1 1/2 of them and that did me no good. Usually one will put me to sleep... :-(

I definitely wouldn't have made it if it hadn't been for the kindness of the flight attendant who sat with me and humored me through the rest of the flight. They brought me up into a room with a curtain and gave me some oxygen, but mostly kept me company, talking to me the whole time. They were amazing. I still felt like hell, but it made a difference to have someone there. Fly FinAir! :-)

I do have to say that I had never been afraid of flying before. But now I avoid it, haven't flown since before 9/11... :-(
