    Hello I just had to write to you. I too have these kind of feelings. I try to tell myself that tomorrow is another day and I may wake up feeling ok.

    I do not wish to preach but for myself I find just saying a quick prayer asking for strength to see me through this ordeal helps.

    ​I am not a religious maniac by the way.

    Breathing exercises also help. Just a few deep breaths hold in for about three seconds and then breathe out. APPARENTy it changes the rhythyms in your brain to ones that cause relaxation. Think they are called alpha rhythyms but unsure.

    Take care. x

      I've been taking metoprolol for 9 years 50 milligrams twice a day that's stopped working so I raised it to 75 milligrams but then changed it to Atenolol but the side effects of too much so I'm back to the metoprolol 75 milligrams trying to give it time to kick in I know it's just anxiety making me shortness of breath but I always think it's the medicine but I'll take it for 2 more days and if it doesn't take my palpitations away then I gotta call him to change my medicine I thought if this ever happen again just raising my medicine would work but it's not that simple

      Well the beta blocker was prescribed for a heart condition but it is causing peripheral neuropathy which is driving me nuts.

      I am going to get my dr to change it.

      If you want my e mail address let me know. I may leave this forum that is why I suggested it. If you do not want it that is okay, no pressure.

      Sorry you asked about my anxieety. ell it is now manageable but when stressful events arise I feel unable to cope. I usually repeat the following mantra 'I am going to be alright'. I usually feel a bit more able to cope after that. I find moving around helps as it stimulates the production of endorphins which arethe bodys natural painkillers and anti depressants.

      ?Let us know how you do.

    Yep I am in the same situation as yours sleeping is something that I look forward throughout the day but it is gotten better since I started with the some medicines. I also kinda having trouble with my short term memory or any kind of memery to be honest it started as my mood become bad about a year ago after my second panic attack in my life(drug induced). Chillout man it can always get better as it can always get worse,see a psychologist or something and don't over analyse your condition! 

    Good Luck
