Didn't realize so many other posters suffered from anxiety issues. I have anxiety attacks all the time but I didn't expect it was this common.
Most of the stress was self-imposed so I have them much less often but when they strike it is uncomfortable.
Medication like Xanax and Klonopin are effective as I've had scripts to both, but I've abused them in the past so I just ride it out now.
I have a better understanding of the attack itself now that I don't cover it up with a chemical so it's easier to deal with.
