I was on a date at the movies...

I was fine for the first half an hour until I had a little trouble breathing with the sweaty palms and all.

Then started with the palpitations and then I kept walking back and forward and slowly breathe.

Good thing I already saw the movie or other wise I would of been mad..let alone upset my date.

This has also happened a number of times due to me have GERD.

But whenever I am home (even with someone else) or just at a friend's house, im fine.

This is most likely from anixety right?

Please Help ME...

Hi Dave,

I am not sure if anyone else here on this forum has checked this out, but it has worked for my panic attacks.  I no longer have those, just generalized anxiety now. 

It's called the One Move Technique.  It's in a book called Panic Away.  W/O infringing on copyrighted material, it basically tells you to tell anxiety to give it everything it's got and come at you 100%. 

It's worked for my panic attacks.  Maybe I should try it on my generalized?  hmmmmm there's a thought.
