Panic attack listening to music on headphones

I love music and I enjoy wearing my headphones when I go for walks, exercise or relaxing but recently I visited my local electrical store and tried out a new pair of headphones in the store.

When a I put them on and played the music on my phone I started to freak out. I started feeling dizzy, really tense, shallow breath and I started to panic which made me feel temporary DPDR. I quickly took the headphones off and I felt a bit better.

I tried another pair and the same thing happened again. I don't know why I felt that way but maybe it is because I am feeling stressed out with being in a busy shop and being incased with the music and headphones finally triggered a panic attack.

Anyone else experienced similar?

I would say that your passion to music causes an emotional reaction within yourself, this makes you anxious and results in a panic attack. Also the surroundings maybe a lot of people and artificial light makes you also anxious. When I am experiencing high level anxiety various things can trigger a panic attack......
