My panic attacks started 8/21 on the way to work, I was driving and felt my heart pounding, felt dizzy, and I was breathing fast. I didn't want to pull over for fear of dying by the side of the road so I drove fast to the ER. I was given 2 doses of metoprolol IV, and 1 dose of diazepam IV. Later that week had 2 panic attacks a day. Now 2 a week. I have missed 6 days of work the past month and I am very fearful that I cannot function at work
Because I'm exhausted or fearful of another panic attack.
I've been trying to get physical ailments ruled out so I went you my primary care physician, a cardiologist, and GI MD.
I listen to u tube videos on panic attacks, panic Apps, and podcasts. I went to a yoga class, trying to relax.
I know my trigger is fear of death. My mom, my godmother,
Family friends, my cat of 18 years all died in the past few months.
I am so fearful because I live alone and work alone.
