Hi each, I started having panic attacks seven years, one month and 26 days ago the day my mom died. The only time I haven't suffered is during my two pregnancies.
Anyway I take 10mg of Paroxetine. This started off a higher dose but over time have managed to reduce it.
Usually my panic attacks are in the form of feeling like I can't breathe which in turn leads to tingling in the arms and legs, nausea, light headedness but in the last few days I have been experiencing what feels like butterflies in my chest, a thumping heart, suddenly shivery.
I'm convinced I have something wrong with me but then can see reading through web pages that it seems like another form of an anxiety attack.
I just can't stop it happening, I've even had to come home from work today as I couldn't sit there feeling like it and the shakes started.
Does anyone else feel like this and does it just come and go all the time and if so how do u get through it?
Thanks in advance
