    hi judy - i have been through this and what really helped me was 'Rebrething techniques'. There are many techniques and you can learn them on youtube or google but one of the easiest ones is by cupping your nostrils with the palms of your hands and breathing slowly and deeply from and to the restricted volume created by your hands. This controls the hyperventillation and brings you out of the panic attack
