Anxiety/Panic (?) Attacks Regularly?

It used to be that I'd have what I think are panic attacks or anxiety attacks maybe once a month. Now it seems they are coming more regularly like every other night. I awake to feeling cold and shaky and my b/p and heart rate is high. I take 5 mg of valium before I go to sleep and thought this could help me not get this awful middle of the nite feeling. Am I doing something wrong? It's really making me very agitated during the day worrying that I will wake up from sleep feeling like this. Actually I'm afraid to go to sleep. Is there something I could do different? Why do attacks come on when you're not really stressed that day? Is this something that will never leave. I'm scared.

Re: Anxiety/Panic (?) Attacks Regularly?

I'd talk to the doc about this. There may be a med that could help you, or even some before bed relaxation exercises. Panic attacks vary in frequency. I've had spells of panic attacks multiple times per day at my worst, then I went over a year having none. Sometimes we just don't know why they happen when they do, sometimes we have to really think about what's going on in our lives and we'll figure it out. Take care.
