Oh Sfqueen, I am so so sorry. What could be worse than being out of your comfort zone and having a horrendous panic attack. I feel your pain. x

Are you still on the buspar?

Yes 4 weeks and one day

I don't know enough about Buspar because once you've been on Xanax for as long as I was, Buspar would be too mild so I was never put on it. I would think 4 weeks 1 day is a good trial period for you to have seen some positive results. Maybe it's time to bring it up with your doctor and see what he has to say. You desperately need to have that fear cycle broken. I know what it's like to have those attacks keep slipping through, it makes it harder to move forward.

I know you will Sfqueen. It's a matter of finding the right combination of treatment whether it be drugs, CBT, therapy etc. Then you will have to be in a place that brings it all together. Only then will something change inside of you that will no longer frighten you. Like anything else, it takes time, patience and perseverance to reach your goal but so worth it. xx

My first panic attack was like that it is very common although it is scary as sh**....you're not alone! I've had my BF drive me to the hospital 3x unnecessarily because I reall thought I was going to die.

Did you feel like you're throat was closing and body tingle

Yes I feel like my throats closing all the time. It's completely normal. The body tingling too. To fix the throat issue, It is due to muscles tensing around your throat. Don't worry it will never get to where you can't eat or breathe, so just try to relax. Rub your fingers gently down the front of your throat to help relax the tensed muscles that helps me. For the tingling, that is due to lack of oxygen and co2 balance so get a paper bag if you want and breathe through that just taking normal breaths that should help. Or just focus on regular deep breathing. πŸ˜ŠπŸ‘πŸ»
