Keyshia Cole opened up about her overwhelming anxiety after she was rushed to an emergency room one night.

Keyshia, 40, told her 7 million Instagram followers she hasn't slept well due to anxiety attacks.

"I'm so proud of getting a few hours sleep, literally have been getting none! So not ok. SMH. And, have been having the worst anxiety attacks. When I can literally feel my heart hurting. Had to take my a** to the emergency room. They gave me d*mn medicine for anxiety. I didn't KNOW wtf was happening to me.."

Keyshia described symptoms of a panic attack. According to there is a difference between a panic attack and anxiety attack.

People who suffer from panic attacks describe feeling like they are dying. Panic attacks come on suddenly and involve intense and often overwhelming fear. Symptoms include racing heartbeat, shortness of breath, or nausea.

Anxiety attacks build gradually over time and are not as intense as panic attacks. Symptoms include worry, distress and fear.

Panic attacks can happen to anyone, but having more than one may be a sign of panic disorder.

Kanye West visited a hospital emergency room after suffering a panic attack on Saturday. Kanye visited the ER just hours after apologizing to wife Kim Kardashian West following a social media meltdown.

The 43-year-old rapper made headlines in recent weeks due to his unhinged behavior, including tearfully confessing he and Kim considered aborting their first child, North West, and accusing Kim of cheating on him with rapper Meek Mill and trying to involuntarily admit him to a psych ward.

Kim responded to the allegations by releasing a statement, asking the public to respect their family's privacy as her husband dealt with a bipolar episode, which then prompted Kanye to shared a heartfelt apology to his wife on Twitter on Saturday.

"I would like to apologize to my wife Kim for going public with something that was a private matter," he wrote. "I did not cover her like she has covered me. To Kim I want to say I know I hurt you. Please forgive me. Thank you for always being there for me."

"Kanye decided to go to the hospital to get checked out. Upon his arrival, Kanye decided he'd rather be seen at home. He headed back to his home - an ambulance followed. Kanye was treated and his doctor says his vitals are normal. He's feeling better."

The events of the previous week took its toll on the Yeezy star, as he was photographed visiting a hospital near his $14 million Cody, Wyoming ranch amid reports he was struggling with "overwhelming anxiety".

"Kanye has been experiencing a lot of anxiety lately. He has been surrounded by a lot of people and started to feel really overwhelmed," a source close to the rapper told Us Weekly magazine.

According to sources, Kim and Kanye have lived apart since last year.

Nicki Minaj at the 2014 BET Awards

The weekend leading up to last night's BET Awards was marred by violence. 1 man is dead and 5 others were injured in separate incidents in Los Angeles. But the show must go on -- and on, and on... Most people (this writer included) didn't stay up for the almost 4 hourlong awards show. So we missed the part when rapper Nicki Minaj accepted her trophy for best female hip hop artist -- and dissed pseudo-rapper Iggy Azalea at the same time.

Attorney General of the United States Eric Holder

Yesterday, news broke that Attorney General of the U.S. Eric Holder suffered chest pains, palpitations (rapid heartbeat) and shortness of breath during a Justice Dept. meeting. My initial thought was that Holder suffered a panic attack. Especially after it was revealed that doctors gave him medication to "return his heartbeat to normal" then discharged him. If his condition was all that serious he would have been hospitalized, if only to monitor him overnight.

Of course, at 63, he could also be diagnosed with any number of heart ailments such as Ischemic Cardiomyopathy, Coronary Artery Disease, Angina, Congestive Heart failure, mild heart attack, etc. But based on his symptoms -- and the fact that hundreds of black pastors are calling for his impeachment -- I think he suffered a panic attack.

Apparently, The Hufffington Post does, too.
