I went through the same thing when I was having panic attacks , which went on for 33 years , I'm 45 now so believe me when I say, if you worry about having another attack, it will trigger them. You have got to find a distraction. Drink chamomile tea ( it works) I wasted so many years worrying about dying that I wasted a large portion of my life. You will be ok. once you realize how strong your mind is.. If you can convince yourself there is something wrong , than you can convince yourself that nothing is wrong and that you are fine. You have more control than you think. ps. I'm serious about the tea, there is tones of research supporting the fact that it acts as a natural antidepressant, which I have never used.

Hi, sorry you are feeling so unwell. Distraction, Mindfulness and breathing techniques really help.

Camomile tea really does work, it helps with sleeping problems and calms you down. I buy Camomile tea with spiced apple, but there are different flavours, I don't like the plain Camomile. I add teaspoon of honey, and sometimes add my own fresh ginger.

I hope this helps. xx

Down load the book "at last a life " by Paul david. It helped me I. The first day I read it. I have the same thing and now I only get it once every dew weeks. The more you try to control it the bigger it will get. If you try and figure it out it gets bigger, if you try and think what cause it this time, it gets bigger, you need to accept it. Find a doctor in your area psychologist or other who teaches the acceptance method.goes along with what the book says and it works I promise. I still won't leave home without my Xanax but I practice my acceptance for an hour before I take one and usually it will be gone by then. In sorry you are going through this. You have anxiety over getting anxiety and it is a vicious cye until you learn to accept it for what it is, welcome it, focus on the outside world and not your feelings and keep mo I g throughout your day. Breathing excercises make it worse it is another way to try and control it. When you try to control it it gets bigger and bigger. Stop pushing it away and get the book. Contact me at any time.
