I am new here and would like to share my story. Hi to everyone! First posting today. I was diagnosed with G.A.D. 1/1/2 yrs ago, and Panic Attcks. Have had numerous panic attacks, so many went to hospital once a week for them for over a year. But I believe that I have allways had this problem. Growing up allways worried about everything. And there have been times I couldn't even go for a job becuase of this. Done alot of research and knowing now that it can be passed on from parents, my mother is the same too constantly worries, and has had the same symptoms panic attacks that are like have a heart attack. I have been on meds for over a year and seem to help, but do have my days though when the littlest thing can trigger these attacks. I can live with the way I am right now, taking my meds and dealing with the problem. It seems that it took my Cardiologist and family doctor so long to figure it out, but as I have read very little is taught to doctors when they are taking med school like 4 hrs of information on Anxiety. But I am relieved that I now know the problem, which I can now understand.
