The person can feel the crisis happen, with precursory symptoms: tingling in the face, lips, under the nose, in the hands and feet. She feels the crisis coming, starts breathing quickly, panting. She panics, shakes, her heart beats fast, can have a lump in her throat that suffocates her. One or both hands can contract strongly and take the form of the "midwife's hand" with the fingers tightened, a little bent, thumb in. The mouth, if it is affected by the contracture takes the form of a "snout".
