Can anxiety attacks be completely cured? For a month now Ive been told I am having anxiety attacks, I can handle the symptoms but obviously i want them to go away, the one symptom I cant handle is the shortness of breath , I feel like I cant breathe entirely.. I dont want to carry a brown bag with me the rest of my life to breathe into when this happens. Any suggestions on the breathing problem? and can anxiety attacks be cured?? your answers help alot.. I am on medication and the doctor gave me 20 mgs because my weight is low. I expereince anxiety when im not anxious, in the shower is the worst and when im just sitting, when i begin to get an attack my chest hurts it goes from cold to hot numerous times and i cant exhale entirely, when it occurs i just say its all in my head , it helps it to pass faster but like i said i just want it out of life.
