The curious case of what's happening to me
#6
You need to get yourself to a doctor. I had panic attacks for years and had no clue as to what was happening to me. I ended up in the ER a couple of times, convinced that I was having a heart attack or a stroke (I had very real symptoms). I couldn't even stay asleep at night; I'd wake up in a panic and have trouble breathing. I was afraid that if I went back to sleep, I'd never wake up again.

I finally told an online friend of mine (a former Fisheater) about my symptoms and she told me that I was probably having panic attacks. I didn't believe her at first, but then decided to go to my doctor and suggest it to him. He put me on a very low dose of Paxil - and voila - no more panics attacks. I took Paxil for about two years and it got me through a VERY rough patch in my life. I don't take it anymore, and I'm fine.

I don't like taking meds but in my case I would have lost my mind if I hadn't gotten my panic attacks under control. I couldn't function at all.
