I think anyone with moderate to severe anxiety attacks for no apparent reason should be tested for celiac disease. I suffered with anxiety and depression for years and finally found out I'm allergic to wheat. Things are much better now that I'm on a gluten free diet.
For panic attack: calm yourself,use positive self-talk,take calming herbs, St. John's wart,kava kava, valerian root,Magnesium,B vitamins (excellent for nerves) Chew on celery ,Pray!
For quicker relief: Bach flower remedies RESCUE REMEDY. About 1/4 of a dropper at onset of anxiety. Continue about every half hour til anxiety subsides.
*** Great for hyper dogs, and cats just put 1/4- 1/2 a dropper in their water bowls.
When I had panic attacks i would take st johns wart, B complex, magnisim. it helped alot along with jesus,I feel that is the only way to get rid of it. Try it you will see. Been free of it for years now. Thank you jesus.
Pick two corners in a room in your house. Take several deep breaths, inhaling through your nose and exhaling through your mouth, while your eyes waggle between these two corners. This 'eye waggle' is similar to watching a ping-pong match.
for years I suffered with panic disorder and anxiety . I finally ended up seeing a doctor . a good one it turns out. He listened to my problems with it..rapid heartbeat..sweaty palms..fear. and tested my blood sugar...Turns out that low blood sugar is a very common cause for anxiety attacks..Since being diagnosed and treated my problem with panic has all but disappeared.. When I start to feel sick I eat something and the attack subsides..Years later a friend of mine confessed to a fear of driving and leaving her home..it was discovered later during an exam she was diabetic
I have suffered with panic disorder since 8th grade. What always helped me was exercise, especially push ups and sit ups, it helps get out alot of energy that builds up. Coffee is alright for me if I drink it only once a day, but if I drink it too close to the time I go to bed I can't sleep. So instead I would drink milk. Watch a ton of funny movies too, laughing makes you feel a lot better.
I have anxiety disorder, and have had panic attacks for years. I am on Celexa for this, but it is also to treat my OCD. I have Xanax for when I do still have a panic attack. I refuse to take this stuff because I used to and I had definate withdrawals from this horrible drug, plus I hate the 'zombie' feeling I had when I did take it. I lost a job thanks to that 'zombie' state. B vitamins make a huge difference. But when I do have a panic attack, I put on some of my favorite music, lay down and massage my stomach.
When I get bad panic attacks, I suck on a piece of ice. It gets my mind off of the attack and helps calm my nerves.
I use scent to keep me relaxed. For me, smelling baby powder really works - crazy, but true. It forces my mind to remember a 'calmer' time, so to speak. Other scents might work too, but baby powder seems to be a calm memory for everyone. Try it - it might work for you while you're waiting the attack out.
Whenever I have a panic attack, I start telling myself that I am absolutely beautiful and so worthy of every great thing life has to offer. For some reason this really works.
