    Hi Clarie,

    Please visit your GP to discuss all your symptoms. You need to take anxiolytic medicines to decrease symptoms. Please don't worry. Medicines along with psychotherapy will definitely help you to recover from panic attack. Please try to change your life style to reduce stress.

      Hi Claire,

      A panic attack is a sudden surge of overwhelming anxiety and fear. You need to reduce your anxiety. Medicine treatment and Cognitive Behavioral Therapy is a very effective to control anxiety and panic attack. If your GP has prescribed medicines, please do not avoid and take them at suggested dose and frequency. Please take an appointment for CBT.

      Additionally, please try to avoid situations or environments which will increase your anxiety (e.g.  Public places and open spaces; going away from home without the company; driving; social gathering; drinking of alcohol, caffeine or certain foods). If you have a shortness of breath or hyperventilation during panic attack, please try to learn to control your breathing. It will help you to calm down during anxiety. Please practice relaxation techniques such as Yoga, meditation. It will help you during anxiety and panic attack. Always be positive and enjoy the life.

    Sending you all my love, been there and am still recovering together with my wonderful trauma specialist. Hopefully what she has taught about how our bodies function regarding stress may help you too.  You get panick attacks when you let your mood and worries overcome you. You cannot get a panick attack if you breath calmy though, so sit down in a calm place where you feel safe and breathe slowly and calmly. You are in control and you are safe. You also need to find ways to relax every time your heart beat rises, so every time you rush to get things ready at home, to get your kids to school, worry about meetings you can't attend too, etc. Calm down, you will survive and get through this. Take one day at a time. Or, one breath at a time, if you need to. First things first, get good routines back into your life again: do everything in a certain order and during a certain time. Always prepare things in advance so you never have to rush. Try to not do everything (of my advice and what you need to do in your life) in one go, instead take everything step by step, little by little. Take care of yourself now, you need yourself to be there for you now. Everyone else has to help out as much as they can now, they will manage. Breathe. Take the time to breathe calmly several times a day. I guess, calmless is what you beat anxiety and panick attacks with. Thinking of you and wishing you all the best. xx

    I know that this sounds silly,but do you have a simple brown paper bag,as during a panic attack this simple object can be of great use to get your breathing back down and stop your heart racing.....

    as Pats121 said ,try to plan your day and write down what you need to do by priority,this way YOU are in control....

    lit does take time to break habits,I am struggling myself,but we must all persevere......

    you know people are here for you on this great forum,which I only discovered yesterday.....it IS good to chew the cud with others and know that you are not alone Claire..
