Quoting A&J. ♥:" It used to happen to me about every 3 months. It's awful. I would seriously feel like I was dying. You need to get on anxiety medications or start with counseling at the very least. I'm sorry!! "Yes it's the worst feeling ever and especially when it is so severe it's like my chest is going up and down on a roller coaster and my heart is racing and I can't do anything about it... I just took a xanax because that's what I was prescribed for my anxiety attacks but it just has never gotten this far with me before.. .
Quoting Olive ♥:" I used to have that happen every time I left the house. I got a therapist and she taught me different breathing techniques to handle it. I also take Zoloft."
Quoting HopingforaMiracle:" I have them every time I leave the house. I have them 10-15 times a day. Even if I don't leave the house. Alot of things trigger mine."Oh my goodness I would go insane!!! What do you feel exactly with yours and what do you do?!
Quoting Tani.:" just curious, does zoloft work well for you? no side effects?"I just started it a couple weeks ago, but I can already tell it's helping. I feel more motivated and a little calmer about things. The side effects are going away now, but they were terrible the first week. I constantly felt drugged up. Couldn't even drive lol. It gave me a headache, and was a little nauseous. Thank goodness they're going away!!

Right now I drink chamomile tea and it works wonders since my anxiety is very mild."That's what I did for mine when I was pregnant Its yummy and it always relaxed me.
