Hi rebel, Some of the posters gave you good advise. Your problem is fixable! Brain chemistry might be the cause: often serotonin levels are low and drinking whole milk may resolve it for you. If this doesn't work you have three other choices to whip this monster. (i) drugs; but they can create other problems (ii) professional help usually employs the techniques of cognitive therapy but it'll cost you for sessions. (iii) you can purchase self-help books on anxiety/panic attack as blueblades, I think, was referring to. This latter choice keeps you off drugs. Cognitive therapy or emotive therapy essentially engages you in talking to your brain or mind; I know it sounds crazy, but it works. For instance, if someone tells you they love you and they mean it, don't you usually have a pleasant sensation? It's a brain effect. Cognitve therapy is talking audibly to yourself when you feel an attack commencing. The brain reponds similarly; your attacks lessen in severity and frequency. You have some core problems that you may want to address later, after you get your attacks under control.
