      You never tell a person to calm down. First of all. People who do not have this do not get it. They don't know how horrible the symptoms are unless it happens to them. Its awful. I struggled years, 27 about. Meaning I didn't like the Dr. Treatment help, he didn't care, its about money to some. Over medicated and never available, I stayed strong and went elsewhere years ago and have had the best quality of life functioning like me again. Better doctors. I was in ER three times in less than month. Scarey, I start new med tomorrow. Please ask anything as I will be glad as well as everyone else to support you.

      Ativan is a life saver, about 15 years on it. Dr. Wants me off, why I don't get. .50 twice day. Until this mess 1mg twice day. I'm not a drug user and never would be or abuse meds, but you can't take someone off ativan that quickly. It takes months or longer. Yes there are bad doctors, if you get one, run and find another good one like I did. Never give up.

    Hi there. First of all, yes I have same thing, symptoms, can't breathe, crying cause I'm scared. Running out of places the attacks were so bad.anxiety sky high. I suggest if you are not no any meds for this the hospital is best place to get safely started on appropriate meds. For a few days. And relax and be around people and feel safe. Your young, and yes you will be yourself again. And will overcome this. Stay strong. You can go to ER even to be admitted. Its very relaxing, nice, food, people to pull you through.

    I've had two ulcers over the years after diagnosed gad. Seriously you worry when and if it happens, where you will be when and if the attack happens, plus hiding it from people is stress.
