    Generally they can control your condition, although you may have problems there and then.

    Your GP can give you medications to take the edge of your condition and hopefully you may recover when what is bothering ceases.

    They may decide to give a course of talking therapy and that can assist. One thing that may help is confront your fears although if the problems are caused by your home environment or work it may take longer to sort out. Personally my condition is caused by a disability and the treatment I need to control it.

    So all I can suggest is that you try and work out what is wrong and try and control your fears. Sometimes if you have life fears, many of these can sort themselves out. Other ways is that you try and go around the problem. Try and deal with one problem at a time and that will help you tackle your fears as life is hard when we have to much on the go.

    I understand that the brain can cope with up to five problems at a time, over that and we become more worried and stressed. I this happens attack with little bites at a time until the problem is sorted.

    Remember a problem of worry shared, is easier to control

  • Thanks for the reply bob :). My dr prescribes some medication but it doesnt seem to be working :/. Tbh i dont think i have any stress. I just had a panic attack that i was having a heart attack 5 weeks ago and now i constantly get worried that im gonna have a panic attack again. I felt like i was having a nerveous breakdown or something. I had a water infection at the time and i just got prescrived glasses that im waiting to receive. I hope that solves the headaches. I just feel like im letting my family down. Im just bemused as how i was happy and normal one day and then had a panic attack and just feel terrible now for 5 weeks :(. Thank you for your reply

    Know how you feel I have been having blackouts and they have lent me a heart check machine for blood pressure, Took a wobbler this afternoon and my blood pressure tanked, mind it only lasted for five mins and I was back up and walking around again, it is frightening. I am sixty four and it frightens.

    Good Luck

    Merry Christmas and a happy prosperous New Year
