If you do see a counselor you might want to mention that dream you described to me a few days ago in my dream thread.

Sorta puts it in focus now.
Good luck.

See a Doctor to rule out physical issues first.

Assuming your doctor has ruled out a physical ailment.

Then you need to look at stressors in your life. Stress/Pressures can be anything from minor deadlines you have to meet to serious things like recent death of a loved one.

Addressing those stress points in your life will largely depend on what the root cause of the stress is.

Mediation, taking deep breaths, counting to ten slowly- these are ways to 'regain' control over the moment. However they do not address the underlying cause.

When an attack starts, Stop - take ten deep slow breaths while reminding yourself - This is only a panic attack there is no reason for real panic.

Well unless there is a real reason to panic.

Your therapist will help you to identify the underlying cause (if its not physical) and address that.
