I use breathing and ice to calm my panic attacks.
Mine get pretty bad.

In breath thru nose. gentle slow 1 2 3
Hold 1 2
Out breath thru mouth. gentle slow 1 2 3 4
4- 5 times in a row
Longer exhale naturally calms your entire system
I use gel packs. Anything frozen will work
ASK PRESCRIBING DOC. The best place to apply for you.
I use side of neck. Wrists. Chest. Hold in hands till pain shoots up forearms
