At the end of December I was rushed to hospital with what they thought at the time was possible heart troubles, but turned out to be a massive panic attack (although as part of the investigations they did discover I have 40% soft plaque in one of my arteries, but I digress!). Through CBT it was eventually discovered I was suffering PTSD from a road rage attack. Just identifying that was a huge move into recovery for me from panic & anxiety attacks. I have been having insomnia problems for a few months (with horrible 3am adrenaline rushes that seem to be hormone related), but in the main the anxiety & panic have pretty much gone away, until a couple of days ago!
Now I seem to be feeling anxious most of the time again, and I really don't know why! I can't identify what may have triggered this again. The only thing I can think is that I have a wedding consultation to do tomorrow, and I haven't done one for some time (and always hated doing them when I did). My doctor is of no help, she just keeps wanting to give me antidepressants.I don't want to take them as I am afraid of the side effects, particularly weight gain.
