Hi Chartreux -- I'm sorry that you are feeling this way. I am terrified of the dentist. I do have to take anti-anxiety med for this (xanax). Of course, I am not dealing with a Primary and Psyche doc that don't prescribe benzos. Another suggestion would be to learn some controlled breathing techniques. The one I do is inhale to the count of 7 (abdomen must go up --- not chest) hold for 8, exhale slowly (like you are whistling) and repeat. You can't be tense when are doing this. Good luck next time.
DX: chronic migraine, cervical degeneration, depression/anxiety
RX: Wellbutrin, Lexapro, Soma, Immitrex
