I hate it. I have not had a p/a in a week and a half or a cigarette. Then today my chest hurts so bad I'm doubled over in pain bawling my eyes out and trying to get ready for work. I feel like I've done everything possible to make it go away...i don't smoke. i exercise. i have a better diet. i dont drink caffeine or eat things like chocolate. but its like a bad dream that keeps happening and wont go away. sorry for the rant. no one even believe me anymore so this is the only place i can let it all out.

Yep, I've sacrificed caffeine and candy to help with my GAD. Medication has helped me, but sometimes I still get panic attacks. There are ways you can deal with it. Just remember that panic attacks will pass and YOU WILL NOT DIE FROM A PANIC ATTACK. You are trying too hard to not have a panic attack or chest pains and that's why they get worse because you fight it. Just accept it for what it is. I still have trouble doing that, but I am getting better at it. Try to relax, music helps me a lot.
