Sudden onset, yes, but not sudden end. These feelings can last literally for weeks on end. I've been in therapy for 4 years trying to get to the root of the problem. I've made some progress, but still haven't been able to, a) see a cause and, b) do anything about the feelings.
And there is a physical component in that all of this takes place in the front of my head. Meaning, the front of my head often feels like it's full of wet concrete, or that I'm wearing an old fashioned diving bell. There's a lot of anxiety and fear involved, not surprisingly.
