Re: how many panic attacks have you had....??

I have had 4 in 8 months. I do however take klonopin (I split .05 mil in quarters and just take a 1/4 each night). I also have the nasty symptms that come along with the anxiety. Bad thoughts, afraid of death, foggy feeling all of the time. sometimes I think I will have an attack becasue of these feelings.

I have had panic attacks on and off for 40 years

Went along time without one but about 6 weeks ago I had a bad one and it brought back all of my anxiety problems again

Now I feel i am starting over

I've been having panic attacks for about 5 years now, and in the past three weeks i've been having about three a day. I'm on about three different meds and just increased to 1 mg xanax 3 x day prn.

I have had panic disorder for about a year now, since I started meds. I do not have the panic attacks as often maybe twice to three times a month now but in the begginning at least every other day and they were severe and hard to control they still are scary but at least I know what they are now, I would not wish this disorder on anybody it is to horrible. Take Care! Amy J.

Re: how many panic attacks have you had....??

My history of panic attacks is sporadic. My very first panic attack was in 1990 and I had another one a few days later where I got up in the night and called 911. Then 4 or 5 years went by and I didn't have any. It seems that my body is highly sensitive to chemicals(Aspertame), foods like caffeine, but especially drugs. A half tablet of Effexor XR gave me an attack for 4 hrs before it wore off! So, I do not believe that it is a stress-related disorder, because I have had plenty of stress, without any panic attacks. It may be a biochemical disorder. The past 20 years I have been diagnosed with various autoimmune diseases--Fibromyalgia, Sjogren's Syndrome & just last March Lupus. Just recently I have learned a deep breathing exercise that I find will prevent my panic attacks almost every time. I pray that everyone can find relief from panic because it is the worst kind of suffering. One never knows when one will be attacked. Please keep fighting to find what works for you!

Over the course of my life thus far? I'm 31, so probably in the hundreds. This week? One really big, full-blown one, and about 4 "limited symptom" attacks. Today? Some symptoms, no real attack, yay!

All I know is that I've had 100's of anxiety and panic attacks, that's why I need to be on certain meds for them.
