    I do sometimes, but i dont think there's a cure. you just learn to deal with it.

    Do you have a therapist or a cousnellor or someone who is trained to help?

    Check your messages. Β learn to breathe using your belly. Bellybio app can teach you. When having an anxiety grab a straw using belly breathing breathe thru the straw. That will ensure you slow it down. They teach young kids that but it is very jseful for all. If you are in public or car ice chips. Place the ice chips under your to gue it halts the anxiety attack and do breathing. Your body cant process two major sensations at the same time so it eill deter the adrenaline rush for a bit. Never ever feed into the attack, you have to let it run its course abt ten minutes. Its unpleasant but once you feed into fear ot recycles and get worse each cycle. Anxiety attacks kind of have to be accepted and surrendered too so they become self limiting. Easy said then done but thats the goal. Magnesium glycinate is helpful it does calm you a notch and helps sleep. L theanine is very helpful for night time if you are not on any medications. The more you learn about this the better off you will be, no cure but can be managed. Sometims it takes iver happens to us all but know you are not alone at all. 26% of the world has anxiety issues and 18% has anxiety disorders. They are trying to figure it out but it encompasses so many things in the brain its hard. Many medical companies oulled out of making new meds because they only work in half the people and not for long time frames. Theres theories it starts in the gut and a new med is in its last trial using pre and pro biotics but thats all i know. You will be okay. This forum is great for comfort . Cbt is extremly effective and so are meditations and mindfullness. Anxiety disorders were originally down as emotional disorder, not the way it is classified now which made more sense and explains why meds only work half the time. Its a fight or flight dysfunction. Your senses get overload too fast and shoot off adrenaline. Not exactly in your control.
