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 used to, but I haven't had a panic attack in five years. Losing the panic attacks was a "side effect" of treatment for injuries sustained in an auto accident. A very nice, but totally unexpected side effect.

My doc was an MD but his practice was holistic or alternative. He used energy work and was very effective in treating physical pain. One day I showed up for my appointment in the middle of a panic attack. I couldn't even talk enough to tell him what was wrong. When I got off his treatment table the attack was over and I haven't had one since.

If alternative treatment is available in your area I would definitely look into it. There are many different alternative practitioners, but many have effective techniques for dealing with this type of thing. Drugs, conventional pyschotherapy, or just living with it ARE NOT your only options.
