      What your feeling is completely normal, its not nice but you'll be okay. Nothing bad is going too happen. This time last year I was having panic attacks everyday, but I don't so much anymore. I could be having a great and day and all of a sudden it will sneak up on me. You'll be alright. Take care. X

      Yep, that was the one symptom that would frighten me the most. It will pass, the more you panic the worse you will feel, I found distracting myself with music or stepping outside for some air helped. Its hard and did get the best of me sometimes. Do you get any other symptoms? Xx

      No I came off tablets, I found they were making me feel worse, you have to do most of the work yourself, but they were not agreeing with me at all. Everyone is different. But since coming off them even though I still have the odd attack and have anxiety, I've been much more better without them. Xxx

    Ah, good they seem to be working thensmile The numbness will pass, probably because your anxious. If your finding it hard to breathe try meditation, deep relaxation/breathing techniques. You can download apps onto yourphone, to help with anxiety and panic attacks.I use mine every now and. then, it's really good. smile xxx

    Hello

    You have already received some excellent feedback and experienced advice. I have nothing new to add to what you have already been told, but sometimes the more people that have experienced it and tell you it will pass, the more it helps.

    So let me lend my voice in support of the advice you have been given, tell you that like many people here I have had exactly the same symptoms or symptoms very similar to the ones you describe, and yes, it can be scary. But there is absolutely no harm being caused to you at all. These 'feelings' cannot do you mdamage, and as you gradually come to terms with that, you will feel less frightened of them, and that really is the best cure because they feed of your fear and you get caught in a vicious spiral.

    I hate telling people this when I remember how horrible and scared I felt when I was going through the same thing, because it sometimes sounds as though I am making light of your symptoms. But I'm not and don't underestimate the distress they cause you.

    Trust in the advice you have received and don't let these thoughts grow by analysing or dwelling on them.

    I wish you well and send you positive thoughts and good wishes. :-)
