Yep, they make meds for that.

Yes, I've experienced them during times when I heap too much upon my worrisome self. I sometimes can't breath, other times I feel like I'm having a heart attack, I have freaked out at a family gathering with DH's family before. They are not the most welcoming of people and love to butcher others and I can't take it. The last Thansgiving meal we had with them, I actually got up just as the food was served and announced that we were leaving and we left. I don't like the feeling of anxiety attacks so if I can remove the trigger, then I don't have them. However, I've had to take ativan for them before when they got out of control. They are usually attached to depression as best I can tell from my own experience. Maybe this is the tightenin in your chest and shortness of breath. Those are my symptoms at the onset usually.

Actually, its my daughter who is having them. And its getting worse. She is going for a MRI tomorrow. I hope they can rule out anything bad and medicate what needs to be medicated. She is just not doing well in general. Dizziness, forgetfulness, darting headaches that come and go in ten minutes, and now panic attacks...


Dear Lord,...... please help us. Amen. Thats about all I got anymore.

She had her MRI. Everything went fine, except a raging headache at the end. It was loud.


We will get her results sometime in the next week. The Neurologist should have the report by Friday, and

Yes, I used to get them all the time in my mid-20's. I went to a psychologist who recommended deep breathing. Those breaths do the trick!

I get them every blue moon, and they usually happen early in my sleep. It's really wierd, and in those moments I breathe and pray through them.
