    Meditation and breathing exercises have help me more than any meds ever have, and I've been on a lot. Taking up a musical instrument and/or yoga also helps.

    I am also suffering from panic attack almost 5 year, It's very horrible experiences for me. I think you try to breathing exercises and yoga. Yoga can help reduce stress.

    I have never been diagnosed with a ligitimate Anxiety Disorder or Panic Attacks but somewhere along the line I was put on Klonopin and I eventually became very addicted. No my Dr. did not tell me this. The Tolerance Withdrawals caused so much anxiety and panic that I was not able to function for months at a time. My anxiety was actually increased 50% and I had no idea why at the time. But the final Klonopin Withdrawal increased my anxiety and panic 100%. I actually thought I was going insane. It felt like I was high on too much LSD without taking anything. And the final withdrawal was so truamatizing, terrorizing, and horrendous I almost killed myself to escape where the Klonopin had taken me. So I guess my message to you is be VERY careful when deciding to take these types of drugs because if you ever have to get off them, remove all the guns from you house.

    Hi all. I'm new to this site too. I'm trying anything I can at the moment to get over this horrible feeling of anxiety. I've been having panic attacks for nearly 5 years on and off. My last one was on New Year's Eve. I don't feel safe anywhere in case something happens to me. I hate it when it gets dark because that's when I have my panic attacks. I've had to phone people in the early hours of the morning so they can talk me down from the panic attack. It's taking over my life at the moment. Anyone else feeling like this?

    Hi there, fist of all i would like to pause , take a breath and wish a happy new year to everyone. What you describe above are several symptoms of anxiety disorders, to my experience these are signals warning us that we are simply not happy with our lives.

    We can hide it from everyone else except from our selves. I agree with timetoletgo and amiyafoster that breathing techniques, meditation, stress management or yoga can be really helpfull but you should also try to find out what realy bothers you and what changes you need to make.

    I know this is not easy but in this way once you find your path these symptoms will ease away.
