Discussions that mention valium

Anxiety board

I have had panic attacks for 23 years. As the years went on they changed form a typical text book case of symptoms to this:
I can get them so bad that my shaking becomes jerking. I jerk violently. My head jerks too. Then when the jerks set in I go rigid. My legs go as stiff as a board as does my entire body. At this point my ankles turn inwards and lock up. I cant move them. Sometimes my wrists do it too. Its only valium that will get me out of this. Its terrifying. I just wondered if anyone else gets them this bad or is this something else?
