I am 16 years old and i have had anxiety/panic attacks for about a year and a half. It mostly happens during thunderstorms, whenever someone yells at me in a way that upsets me, and when i know something bad is going to happen. The only way i know how to control is is to block out all background noise i will usually put in my ear phones and have music playing really loud or a movie. But i notice it takes a long time to relax. I have been looking everywhere for home treatments but i haven't found anything that works. Some of the things i have tried include; trying to distract myself, saint johns wart, and meditating. But i still find myself in a situation where my hearts beats fast, i cant breathe, i feel like im gonna throw up,and sometime to the point i shake. I also have IBS so whenever i get into a panic attack i have to make sure im close to a bathroom. If you have any other ways to help me please let me know.
