Re: Anyone have "anxiety" or panic attacks without rapid pulse or hyperventilating
Thanks Stacey... just trying to figure out what's going on. How long do your panic attacks last?
I've had an MRI of my head, CT of abdomen, and countless blood tests... everything is normal except for an ulcer in my duodenum.
I've lost 20 lbs in 6 months... I have certainly been stressed but I still feel as if these episodes I have start of as physical feelings and then my mind takes over and makes it worse.
Neurologist is the next specialists I have yet seen... also looking at Lyme as a possible cause...
I do have .25 xanax I was recently prescribed... it appears that if these do work, they take 1 hour and preventatively, they do not work. Maybe the dose is too small, but my wife had .50 doses and those would just knock me out. I've read xanax should kick in quickly, but for me, it isn't working or my hour long episode just ended and I may have taken too long to take the xanax...
Very frustrating... starting to impact life and work.
