Hi my name is Adrian
First of all, thank you all for sharing your story about anxiety. I'm 40 years old and recently got my first anxiety attack. The first anxiety attack happened to me on Friday 11/30/2012 while driving to work. I was able to get to the side of the road with no problems and then my carpool friend called 911. I went to the hospital and they did a bunch of test. All they found was high blood pressure, everything else came back negative. At the hospital they did not detected or discover the anxiety attack problem. I stayed in the hospital for 1 day, than I went to see my doctor and he prescribed me high blood pressure medicine. Four days later I had the anxiety attack again but this time I went to urgent care where the doctor there after a few questions she said I had gotten a panic attack. She prescribed me Lorazepam to only use when I start to feel the panic attack, so the following day I went to see my doctor and he said that Lorazepam is habit forming. So he switch my prescription to Proxetine. My doctor said that it usually takes 1 to 2 weeks for the drug to work and for the mean time have the Loranzepam ready if I were to get an anxiety attack to use it since it reacts within 15min. Since I been taking the Paroxetine I have been only getting mild anxiety attacks but I also feel some pressure in my head behind the eyes. I went to see an eye specialist and they checked for any damage in the eyes and all is good. The eye specialist even said my vision is 20/20. But she also said that my eyes were a little dry so she told me to buy some over the counter eye drops which I'm using. More than likely it might be the dry eyes that is making me feel like pressure in the head. The more I sleep the better I feel but sleeping will not solve my problem. I'm going to set up an appointment with a psychologist this up coming Monday. My wife says your are stronger than that and snap out of it. But to tell you the truth, I'm scare. I went to get acupuncture and a massage which relax me and I was able to sleep for about 10hrs. Has any body tried this 'Panic Away' program? I'm so desperate that I'm willing to give anything a try. Here is my E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any advise. Thanks you all once again.
