hi i was diagnosed with gad a few weeks b4 xmas...i had no warning signs of anything unitl i had a panic attack then the same day i had another 3 which made me concerned enough to go to a+e who did bloods and ecg and told me what it was...i was sent on my merry way feeling a bit silly and was told any problems visit my gp.....the next few days after i felt a bit detached and had physical symptons so i went to see my gp who advised me that all the symptoms i was experiencing were normal and i needed to break the cycle of thinking about it!!! i joined up to a mindfullness awareness class and they taught me how to turn off the head chatter and how to breath etc which is going great and i dont fear the attacks and if it happens it happens noone in the room even knows its happening but the physical symptoms are a bit different even if im not thinking about them they are always there, they dont hold me back as i work full time and keep busy outside work...how do i break the cycle of the physical symptons?? im told not to think about them which i dont but they are always there i wake with them.. so im after some tips etc on how to deal with this part as im not on any meds atm
