Re: Anxiety ALL the time :(

My anxiety/ panic attacks came for out of nowhere. One night I was eating something with a lot pepper and started to choke and then WHAM big problems that would not go away. I went to the ER atleast 4 times in a panic and they ran tests and said nothing was wrong with my heart or brain and it was anxiety/panic. I decided to go to a PSYC and that is where my story takes a postive turn. She has put me on Lexapro and Lamictal along with Ambien at night to help me sleep. The Lexapro alone was not doing the trick so she added the Lamictal and that seems to be really helping. I am also talking with a therapist. This whole process has been going on for about 8 months. I don't think that trying to relax on my own would have changed a thing. I know the meds are helping me. Before I would have this feeling in my throat which would make me feel like I could not breath which would launch me into panic.

Can you see a doctor and talk about trying some meds?
