3 hour panic attack

I had to pull over on the motorway yesterday as I had a extreme panic attack again. The police and ambulance came took my car away. I had to take 6mg of diazepam to finally calm me down after 3 hours. I was convinced I was having a heart attack. I'm having these worse full blown attacks every day at the moment. Is this normal for a panic disorder? I'm really scared as they are horrible :(.

It's so embarrassing as the doctor ignored me last night saying your heart ish fine and it's just panic. I just couldn't take it as it's only panic as we all know how severe it feels x


Hi there

I'm so sorry you're going through a tough time.

Cbt is the best way forward and it will help you.

Have you looked into mindfulness?

Check out headspace and

Hope you feel better :) xx


Thank you for the advice I will stay strong x


Unfortunately it can be very normal. Everyone’s experiences can also vary. I’m so sorry you are feeling so bad. Have you tried talking to a therapist to help you tecognize triggers and develop coping and relaxation skills? This can be very helpful in helping you not have so many severe panic attacks so often. They can be so debilitating! Hope you can find the relief you need.
