Hi, Very interesting finding this site. I diagnosed myself as the doctors I saw had no idea. I found that for 3 years when I was on anti-depressants I didn't have one attack. It took me a while to associate this with the tablets however, anti depressants also make me feel muffled and lifeless ! I came off the tablets and back came the attacks. I was prescribed Amitriptylene and although the attacks are slightly better they still come.
I have put a trigger down to bending. If if I bend over for example doing filing at work or perhaps just bending to pick something up from the passenger footwell in the car that night an attack comes. Sometimes if I have worn tight trousers around my stomach.
Has anyone else found triggers like this ?
This never happens in the daytime to me 'touch wood' and I am slightly alarmed this could happen. Bad enough at night, I would be totally embarrassed if it happened at work.
Staying over at people houses also dreads me. My Dad wondered what was happening when I had an attack at his house but how can you explain everything. Unless you have these attacks you cannot understand how painful and how frightening it is.
Perhaps between us we can narrow down the causes and treatments, like you all I would try anything, even perhaps going back on the anti depresants !
