I get a lot of panic attacks from Lyme (never had them prior so I assume that's what they are from), but the rest of my week is going to be busy, so I'm really nervous about getting one. For instance, I'm going to have my hair cut, colored, and highlighted tomorrow and the chemicals always trigger some sort of reaction.
I used to carry Ativan in my bag just in case, but now that I know I'm allergic, I won't be taking that again.
Is there anything I can do to stop or lessen the panic attacks? I get all the symptoms, shortness of breath, disassociation, feeling like I'm going to pass out, and I just can't have that the next couple of days.
