for years now ive suffered from them but the last few weeks theyve got worse. I feel like im choking, its really scary. Ive had it at night and whilst eating which is scary.

But recently Ive had them bad during driving lessons, to the point ive had to stop the car and get out. Ive got my driving test in a month so cant be continuing like this. Does anyone know of anything I can do / take to try to prrevent these panic attacks?

Awww (((Hugs))) hun

So sorry about your attacks. Unfortunately I can't offer you advise on what to take because I have never suffered with such thing. I just didn't want to read and run.

Have you spoken to your doctor about this? I am sure he/she will be able to help.

It must be so scary for you when you have an attack so I really do hope you get it sorted out.

If you go ahead with your driving test good luck hunni and I hope you get your big 'P' plates

I need to go ahead with my test, ive been driving for a year. my last instructor took me for a ride and conned me for 7 months, in that time id only done 2 manouvres! So Ive worked damn hard since changing instructors.

It is really scary especially when driving as im in control of the car

Hiya Hun,

My sister has been suffering from Panic Attacks since my mum died last year, she avoided going out anywhere. We were in Holland and Barrat as I was getting some Dairy Free stuff and I told her to ask the woman about her Panic Attacks. The woman recommended St Johns Wort.

She takes 3 a day and after about a week she noticed a Huge difference. She's like a different person, honestly these are Great!

They are quite expensive but Holland and Barrat always have them in the sale so keep an eye out for them.

Got to be worth a try!

Hope this helps....good luck with the driving! xxx

Hey hun

Sounds like you're getting quite stressed with the driving stuff. Logansmummy is right st Johns Wort will help but I would reccomend trying to find out what is causing them or finding a way to stop them when you feel one coming on.

There is a lot of good literature on self help of panic attacks and educational stuff on why they happen. PM me if you want a chat about them and I can try therapy via email!!

I should say that panic attacks and anxiety are my forte. I have been working with them for years!!

Ive tried to stop them coming on but I cant, ive tried breathing techniques etc but it doesnt work. A lot of time I bring them on myself by thinking Im going to ahve one, if that makes sense? I know it sounds silly but I cant stop myself from thinking it

Makes perfect sense hun and is the most common reason for panic attacks with the worry that you'll have another one. Key thing at this point is not to avoid what you think is causing it because that leads down a downward spiral....
