I am 21 and am losing complete control over my life.
My first panic attack occurred about
2 years ago while smoking, needless to say, i have NOT touched the stuff in 2 years.
My panic attacks will occur randomly and frequently. It baffles me how nothing even brings them on, they can show up when im in a really good or bad mood.
I have atleast 3 panic attacks a day, they are much much worse when i've had even a single alcoholic beverage the night before.
My main issue is breathing. I forget how to do it and no matter how many breathing exercises i do, it gets worse. My chest gets extremely tense and i can feel my heart racing even if im not touching it.
Now, i realize many people have this problem BUT mine seriously last for days at a time. Its making me beyond depressed and i have no reason to be otherwise! I don't understand what triggered this and i just want to get rid of it! I did not want to go on any medication but after trying all the natural stuff i could get my hands on, im desperate for a solution.
Any suggestions on where to start? I need to breathe..
