    I take citalopram and it helps. My sister in law takes Zoloft and it helps her. Follow you GP recommendation hopefully you will get on the right one the first time.

    Hey Megan I'm not on any medication at the moment but I just wanted you to know I feel the same, I'm constantly worried about dying, weathers it's by my heart, lunges, throat or brain, I had episodes last week where I felt as if I wasn't really here. Like I was in a dream. I've seen a homeopath to try help me before I go in med because I've heard some cab have bad side effects. CBT is suppose to be very good also xx

    Hi Megan, I'm 52 and I have dealt with this for many years. way back I would have such bad panic and thought I was dying I would end up in er. However, 20+ yrs still here. God has his plan. It's such a hard thing to deal with. I'm now starting to repeat the cycle to were every few days I feel scared and worried about something happening. I can't give good advise cause if I could I would have overcome this my now. I know when your body and mind starts to feel things you go into a panic mode. I can say to you seek medical help and try meds. It did help me a lot. I go to new doctor next month so I hope he has the magic cure. I feel so alone at times with this. Finding this site really helps. The people on here care and give some great tips and advise. And most of all support. Cause that is what we need others who are or have these issues. Best of luck to you.
