It's a non-existent condition used to draw attention to oneself and to attempt to collect disability benefits.

I have it and I work everyday at my job earning my living it is not disabling but it is very scary when it hits you. Shortness of breath, you feel weak and your heart races and you feel like you are having a heart attack.It is real Indio!

Your name needs to be Idiot. You have no idea. A panic attack is something I wouldnt wish upon my worst enemy. Maybe you should be around someone when they have one. It is a real condition just like cancer. You cant see the cancer but it is there.

I was agoraphobic a few years ago, Meaning I couldnt leave the house for a long time. I was ready to kill myself it was the worst 4 months of my life. If it wasnt for god and the support I had I would have probably ended my life then.

People that have never had a panic attack think its a joke. ITS NOT A JOKE!!!!!

Well let me be the first to tell you that you haven't a clue as to what you are talking about!!! If you have had a Dr to tell you that what you have stated is accurate, PLEASE list the Dr, for he/she would definately need to continue their education and I would personally tell them that!! As for you, just let a panic attack hit you or be in a crowd of people and suddenly anxiety takes over you and see then if you think they are as you prefer to call them "non-existent conditions". People like you really get under my skin always assuming that you know what is wrong with someone else or how someone else feels. I bet you are a psycology major aren't you NOT!!! People who are stricken with panic attacks, anxiety disorders, major depression, bi-polar, add, adhd and etc. can not help it and often times they are genetic. If you should ever have one of these terrible diseases or disorders then I think you would know and see how they can control your life on a daily basis. So as with so many people don't pass judgement about others unless you know your facts!! Ignorance is such a sad thing, but fortunately it can be corrected.

Surely you aren't serious! I have a friend who has this condition and it's so frustrating for her and also embarrassing. However, the right doctor and medical help will help tremendously. Go see Dr. Jenkins.

You know Indio, your pathetic. You don't even no what a panic attack is. I had them everyday for two years straight. I thought I was going crazy, and still do. My son was in a car wreck in 96, he was mangled up so bad, my husband wouldn't let me see him at the hospital in the morgue. I prayed for God to let me be able to see him one more time. It broke every bone in his body, but God made a way for me to see him at his funeral. He was beautiful when I looked at him. Now I look at his pictures and I see things I didn't see then. It was because of the Ativan they put me on. I don't want to cope with a drug. Because when you come off them you see reality. I suffered with his death, went to his grave everyday for the first 2 yrs. Yes, I went and seen a nut doctor, all they wanted to do is put me on nerve medication. I quit going cause I didn't want to become a drug addict and crazier than what I already was. I couldn't drive down the road without having to pull over and stop. I couldn't sleep at nite, all I would do is walk the floor shaking on the inside. Thought I was having a heart attack. I got to where I could breathe, had to use a paper bag to get my air going again. I finally got better after two years. Now, it's happening again cause my daughter got killed last July. Now they are starting to come back again. I hope you never have to deal with this.

I always thought my mom wasjust putting on an act to kind of get her way when she would say she was having a panic attack untill the day I had my first one. It was the WORST feeling in the world. Yes my mom draws a check so what? I don't but I am off work and under a doctors care for it. It's not something to joke about or to make fun of. I would NEVER want anyone to go throught with it and have to realize the hard way it is real. So before you start in on the ppl drawing checks and wanting attention, read up on it and learn about the facts first.

Thank you and I will be grateful for the prayers. Prayer is the only thing that has saved me now. There are days that I think I can't go on. These attacks scare me to death. But, like i said, I know what they are and what they can do to you. It's really hard to deal with them. It's bad when you awake in the middle of the night with one. Sometimes I feel like I'm going crazy, seems like I have so many things running thru my mind at once. I am so scared of having a nervous breakdown and I don't know how its gonna affect me. I think these attacks are hereitary because my mom had them and they run in my family. I have sister and brothers both that have them. Just pray that God will not let them get to me as they did when my son died. I know that God won't put no more on ye than what ye can bear. But losing your kids is the worst i've dealt with yet.

They do run in the family, that's why I have them. All down my mothers' side had them. That is why my doctor is SOO sure that is what is wrong with me. I had been in and out of the hospital all month of May because I was having unbelivable amounts of pain and they could not tell me why, untill I went to the doctor. It's horrible what they make you feel like.

Im not sure what scripture it is but when i was stuck in the house i repeated it over and over.
God does not give me a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind.

Now one thing i do know that people that have panic attacks cannot go crazy, we are too aware of our surroundings etc.

You think you are making a joke but what you are really doing is exposing your brain.Xanax is prescribed for panic attacks.That people abuse them is certainly true,like everything else they should be taken in moderation,but they most certainly are prescribed for anxiety .Until you hang your shingle out maybe you should just read and not add any delivery.

Yes, I'm serious. I also have anxiety and panic attacks and claustrophobia, and Xanax helps me cope.
