Currently having a panic attack...anyone around?

I have them at night, usually right before I go to sleep, or immediately after I sleep I'll wake up with one. I've been dealing with panic on and off for about 7 years, starting when I turned 18. I take 1mg lorazepam when symptoms start, but sometimes I don't act quickly enough and start to get dizzy, my heart races, I can't breathe properly, my stomach hurts, etc. I took lorazepam about 15 minutes ago and am waiting for it to properly kick in so I can fall back asleep. In the meantime, this will be my first post on the q&a board: Anyone have any words to help?

Hi Prittyser, have you gone to see a therapist alongside with the help of medication? I am more the natural/herbal remedy type of person, but if the medication you are on is working for you, I would still recommend cognitive behavior therapy.

Sometimes I try running in place when I have a bad panic attack, it helps to distract myself and forces me to breathe. If you can't find a private place to do it try calling a friend you trust, they can help distract your mind
