I think I posted about my trip to the ER and stay in the hospital back in May. I had to have two stents placed and all that seems to be better now.
I still keep having the "episodes" that sent me to the hospital. My heart races, I shake uncontrollably, feel like I am going to die, get a big knot in my stomach, feel like I am going to pass out, blood pressure shoots up and now I have started to cry and there is nothing I can do to stop these attacks. I have recently figured out that I am having panic attacks. I discovered last night that if I just take a walk I will feel better. I just got back from a walk around the neighborhood and my mood has improved.
Do any of you other good folk have panic attacks? If so how do you handle them? I have an appointment with my regular family doctor on Monday. He's a very caring doctor so I know he and I can come up with something to help me.
I feel like I am losing my mind when these attacks happen.
