I have suffered with panic attacks on and off for years since I was a teenager. It is mainly about going on nights out, meals out and on public transport. I feel so sick and nervous about the event that by the time I get there I can't eat or drink anyway which then makes the situation even worse. The week leading up to this it getting terrible too, waking up feeling sick, diarrhoea , feeling exhausted. I've been prescribed sertraline today by the doctor and been given a leaflet on social anxiety. I don't think I do have social anxiety I think it is panic disorder as I am not generally a shy or nervous person and I do love going out and meeting new people when I am not stuck in this rut of anxiety. Does anyone suffer with anything similar? What did you do to overcome ? Thanks
