My first one was a couple years ago, I been better but haven't been the same since. It was on and off panic for like a year and I thought something was wrong of course. I know there are thousands of people who are going through this I just wanted to get this off my chest to see if I can get some relief from people who understand it. It's always negative thoughts that bring it on or a strange feeling in my chest and I assume the worst. Lately my chest gets tight and I focus on my breathing which makes it worse and I panic. I panic to the point where I hyperventilate and my hands and feet lock up and go numb. I went to the ER and they of course said I need to talk to a therapist. He gave me Xanax and sent me on my way. I probably should go but it's time and money. I was hoping someone found other alternatives? I do techniques I've found online about belly breathing and relaxation but sometimes I can't do it right and panic more. So am I lost cause to therapy or can I work through it? Thanks again
