    Hi Tracieann,

    I am having a panic attack for 9 years. I tried all sorts of therapies and medicines. I even used xanax for 2 weeks. I diagnosed anxiety disorder 2years ago. I was non-stop gagging, my legs were shaking, feeling sick, fast heart beats, all kinds of stomach promlems, insomnia etc. I lost a lot of weight when I was really bad back in 2years ago. I was only drinking water and soup and sometimes yoghurt. I did not eat anything because of my gaggs. My doctor changed my medicine and perscripted me paroxetine and I have been using it for 1,5 years. However, I started to feel anxious and sad again 4days ago. I had a headeche and it kind of caused me to feel anxious and panic again. Since yesterday night, I feel terrible. I have shakes and gaggs. I'm really scare to go back to my old bad days with anxiety sad

      I am going to GP in 15 mins. I couldn't sleep well last night, woke up with shakes and trembling I still have one :'( I am feeling really desperate.I hope he GP can help me immediatiely. I couldn't go to work yesterday and today and couldn't say to my manager that I am having a anxiety disorder and panic attack. I didn't even say to my mum because she is back in my home country. If I do say her she will be panic and she needs visa to come to UK, which is nearly impossible to get. I don't know what to do

    Tracieann, have you ever had counselling? In my experience tablets will take the edge off but they cant actually change your thought patterns. even a bit of self help cbt may work wonders for you. have a look into it x
