So sorry to read that you are experiencing horrible panic attacks, I to have started having them, had a really bad one today that has made me feel not so good tonight?
They are horrible and I'm not sure about you but to me I feel a loss of control, I also had my first one whilst driving home from work on the motorway and now I try at all costs to avoid the motorway!!
I did see my GP but he wasn't really sure what to do or say, just said try not to be so anxious, easier said than done eh??
I do believe it is quite common to experience this after traumatic times in your life such as medical/life threatening illness, I believe that this year has been so tough with surgery, chemo, rads, Herceptin and now tamoxifen and the fear of breast cancer has all caught up with me, it was like a whirlwind and now it has started to settle as treatment starts to end, I think reality has started to kick in for me, and maybe this is the same for you?
I do hope things start to settle for you and feel rest assured that your not on your own we are all in this together!
Hope you get some help and reassurance from your GP
