Hi all!! Im not new to HW, but new to this forum. I have been suffering from anxiety and PA for quite some time but put it on the back burner (I wish I knew how I did that) due to major issues I was having with pain. Well I believe I have the answer to my own question actually. I was on soooooo many medications; oxycontin, Norco, Nuerontin, Elavil, Soma, Lexapro, Cymbalta...geez a few more that i just cant think of. I think I was too stoned to have a panic attck! eyes   Well now after a major surgery, I've been able to take myself off all of the meds besides my Lexapro, Cymbalta and now I do use Xanax. (Life saver for me) I started to feel those old feelings of the room closing in on me, people ARE staring at me (no they aren't) but I would think so. I'm slowly coming to grips with those issues but I wanted to say hello to you all and let you know I do lurk around alot and read posts. I try to input when I feel I have something of use....stay well all

the antidepressant doses may need upping and yes xanax is very useful, lucky you can get some

thank you all for the warm welcomes. I guess I never really "addressed" my anxiety until recently. what a HUGE improvement I have made. I'm actually getting my old self back...."Hi me!" I still have episodes, big ones, but for the most part Im getting a handle on them and can usually see the triggers. I have read some nightmares here and on other forums, my heart goes to you all...
