It will pass. You said you haven't had one in a long time so you have proof you will get through it. I understand how you feel. I worry about having panic attacks and cause myself to be anxious. It is a true nightmare. I try to eat healthy...food high in magnesium and potassium might help. I've read deficiencies can cause anxiety as well as adrenal issues. Find the sources of the stress in your life and see if you can make changes. I hope the best for you. We can all get through it together supporting each other.
If you haven't had one for a while you kind of forget just how debilitating these things are. Like others have said it does pass eventually but can leave you shaken for days. The more you think about it, the more it happens. Mindfulness is good. Panicking about panicking is unhealthy, try and keep yourself occupied. I know its hard but try. Also try breathing techniques in every day things. It comes in handy when the dreaded things come from nowhere. Have you a local mind charity local to you. They are great also when you do have a panic attack you could phone the Samaritans for reassurance, sometimes thats all we need. Take care.
Thanks everyone for replying to my post means a lot I have had counselling don't seem to help and also on medication mirtizapine which is an anti depressant and also on propranolol, I just need to try not think negative because I know I do it to myself thinking I'm having heart attacks and blood clots but it's just the way I am, I hate this anxiety I can't even work no more through it as I don't leave my house I hope everyone is ok with anxiety x
Anxiety/panic attacks are nothing to take lightly. Something happened that triggered the attack. You will get through them, by relaxing, taking a few deep breaths and calming yourself down. I teach people to use their emotions to access their subconscious so they can get the results they want. To help them deal with their anxiety emotions and how to control them. When you're ready for change, I can help! vanwyckconsulting.com/chang... All my best!
I hope you are feeling better, I know what you're going through though. I had my first full blown attack back in May of last year and I went to the doctor convinced there was something wrong with my heart and I was put on Zoloft and Klonopin to get through it. Luckily for me, I only had to be on the lowest dose of each one to feel more like myself. I had gotten off both medications in November and felt fine until a few weeks ago and the shortness of breath and some of the other symptoms had come back. I've been having a hard time the past few days. But keeping busy with cleaning and my son is making it a little easier.
Yep - thats anxiety! The more you worry about the symptoms you have got - more symptoms pop up - you now have more to worry about! Vicious circle!
