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?

I'm so sorry you're having trouble. Did your dr give you techniques for dealing with the attacks or just dismiss them? Is there someone else you could talk with? Do you know any RNs or nurse practitioners? Moving is extremely stressful and if you have young children and are home each day with them and working hard but not seeing the tangible results of that at the end of the day it will set you up for depression and severe anxiety. We moved a year ago when our dks were 6,5,2, and 8 months. It was hard! If you are suffering from depression, there are treatments available for that and many with very low side-effects. Can you talk with your dh about it? I don't have any answers but I think you are wise to address the attacks early and not wait till they get worse. I've said a prayer for you. P.S. Getting enough sleep is really important. Take care of yourself.
I'm surprised your dr suggested valium. I suggest talking with a different dr if you can. As you can tell from the other posts, you are not alone!
