I also am RXed xanax (.50 mg) for such situations. about
3 years ago my dad had triple bypass and valve replacment sugery and I had an anxiety attack.....that being said....when I had my horrid flare 2 years ago and was sick for three weeks straigh I thought maybe my nerves were playing a HUGE role. My nerves didn't end up being the cause of my horrid flare, however my family DR told me to use the xanax as needed to head off the anxitey when I can't get it under control. It works wonders for me.
I give myself a little time (normally a half hour or so) to calm myself down first and I seem to have the best luck by just blocking everything or talking to God.
