Not Right

I have been having daily panic attacks for weeks.. Is there any organic medication or coping mechanism I can do to overcome this? Any Suggestions?

I recommend staying off sugar, which unfortunately is in pretty much everything these days.

Do you drink caffeine? When I stopped caffeine I no longer had bad anxiety and panic attacks. It was around 3 months when I noticed a big improvement.

Thanks! I must and should start zeroing out my sugar intake and sodium, I think that also trigger me.

I've recently become aware that when I eat highly sugared things I'm going to have panic attacks when I get into bed at night. Really, not a good time.

Husband gave me a whole bar of halva while we were watching TV last night (however he did not unwrap it, much less force it down my throat) and I was in a real mess. First it felt like a stray hair was tickling my nose, then when I established that no such hair was present the Thing in my gut started up.

Took another dose of my anti-anxiety stuff and sat up reading half the night. Again. This kind of disturbance is not good for either of us, and it's become a regular occurrence.

Thanks for mentioning sodium. Must say I don't mind a liberal dose with eggs. :(

NTS: Tell husband to stop trying to make little wifey fatter than she already is. I'm onto him.
