I never used to have panic attacks but since we moved and just the stress of life I find myself having what I call mini panic attakcs I just become overwelmed and feel like my heart is going to pop out of my chest and just feel paniced. I did talk to my doctor about it and basically was told unless it gets really bad to just more or less deal with it, but it feels like it is getting worse. Just wondering if anyone else ever feels like this?

((BIG HUGS)) mommy2many...I have had panic attacks since I was 13 years old...I'm now 46...I have learned to live and deal with them...One thing, if you haven't already, is cut out the caffeine!!! makes them worse....I was taught by a psychologist to do alot of self-talk, tell your self, this is only a PA and it will pass...also keeping as busy as possible thing I have always said to myself to talk myself down is this, "is this something that I would need to go to the emergency room for? Am I bleeding? Am I having real chest pains?"....If you need to go on a medication for awhile, DO IT!!!!...don't feel weak or be afraid of the meds, they are very helpful...And above all, don't let ANYONE tell you or make you feel like you are crazy, you aren' have a condition that deserves treatment just as much as any other....Much love to you, hang in there, Jayne
