Indeed, that spacy feeling is about the worst thing in the world. That is unbearable when that feeling is constant. Have faith, that feeling has now gone away after probably years of suffering. My anxiety has been treated with an MAO inhibitor. It still took some time for the spacy feeling to go away. Just remember it does go away. Hang in there, there is light at the end of the tunnel.

: : Hi all - I am learning to cope with the attacks. I just breath slowly and try to remember that a panic attack has never killed anyone - but my biggest problem is the "spaciness" as Seth called it.
: : Does anyone know if anti deppresants help with that part - the spaciness?
: : I am taking Ativan when I get stressed out but they don't seem to work for the spaciness - any thoughts?
: : Thanks - Airyn

: I have found that for me, Prozac helped with the spaciness as well as control the overall anxiety/panic. Spaciness is a result of biochemical changes that happen in people with anxiety/panic. I see it as a state of low lying chronic anxiety that doesn't proceed into a full blown attack. The chemical changes that happen when we are anxious lead to that spacey feeling. SSRI's like Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa serve as like a "buffer" to the anxiety by altering the way all the neurochemicals affect us and our brains.
