I hope you have gotten some sleep. Just for the record, my Dr. said that if I can pinpoint the trigger of my anxiety, that would be called an anxiety attack. If nothing in particular happened nor were you thinking of anything troublesome, and you then start getting the rapid heart beat and the sweating and feeling like you are going to have a heart attack (or that's how I describe it) that would be called a full on Panic Attack. On occassion an Anxiety attack will trigger a Panic attack, but most often it's one or the other. I did just go online to test this, and it says the same thing that my doctor said. This is the first time I've read up on it or anything, I'll just leave it at that. My Dr is one of the most renouned dr in his field (Psychiatry) here in the southeast region. I have been taking Xanax for over 25 years though this doctor isn't the one who started me on it. But I've been told I will never get off of Xanax and I'm fine with that. I use the medication and a little technique where I take a big breath and say in my mind, "In with the Good", then slowy relax and let the breathe out saying in my mind is "Out with the Bad." Those are the things I can say to you. I sure hope any of it helps. You, in my opinion, should be treated as Panic Disorder vs. Anxiety. And for the record You Are Not Crazy!!!! Give yourself a break and describe how you feel and how it comes on to your doctor. Take Care and let us hear from you!
