Sorry it took so long to respond. I have had company the past two days and the other mod Stkitt has been dealing with a ill and recuperating husband.

Anyways, yes when my anxiety is high I get just like that. You should take the Xanax at the first hint of it starting. I use Xanax myself and if I feel my anxiety ramping up I take the Xanax immediately. If I do it like that I am able to stop it in its tracks. Don't be afraid of the Xanax it really does help. I only use mine about 3 times a month now. Good luck!
