Thanks for the advice. It helped as much as it could, and the breathing definitely helped subside the anxiety a little. I'm not exactly sure what spurned this sudden panic, but I ended up getting severely sick for a while and couldn't move for an hour or so. I'm really afraid that this is being caused by my medicine- I've never had such a physical response to anxiety, and if I do it's usually just minor? And my pdoc is on vacation, and I know you aren't supposed to stop taking medication.. But seriously, I've felt sick since I began treatment, and this is the worst it has been so far, even though we're further into treatment and all the side effects should be gone.. Urgh, I still feel incredibly ill, but I know it isn't a virus, because I've had a milder form ever since I've started treatment. Any thoughts?
Oh, and I also attribute the panic to not getting enough sleep last night. Sometimes that happens, even if it is to a lesser extent. Thanks for the concern.
