I ve been getting frequent panic attacks where I find myself feeling a fear of dieing and uncontrollable breathing. These attacks almost feel like an certain heart attack followed by chest pains. I also have no desire to do the things I use to love doing. I lay down in bed all day with non sense of excuses to do so. I m 29 years old and been feeling this way for years now. It seem the symptoms are getting worse by the day. I m having trouble interacting with my peers because I can t look anyone in the eyes when a conversation is started. The chest pains begin and I have to sit somewhere alone to try and take the feeling. I ve tried breathing exercises afor years now and they are no longer active in my recovery. I use to be prescribed xanax and one day I stopped taking the medication. When I was on this medication these attacks and depression were never present. The doctor that use to prescribe me has retired and now it s hard to find another who will. I have health insurance with Aetna and I m suffering without this medication. Can someone point me in the right direction because I am losing my grip on living a normal life that I use to love so much. Now all I do is sit and think of random thoughts and worry about the next attack which they or very hard to control on my own. Please help.
