Glad to hear your: medical workup was negative. Many people do fear that they are having a heart attack with their first panic attack. Did you have a specific question?

Be happy: You are right , in extreme panic attack you can have chest pain -from temporary coronary spasm. But if didn't have for 1 year and if all investigations are negative , you are learning to survive it and you are probably outgrowing it. be cheerful, young man. In terms of klonopin, (clonazepam) try to reduce taking it often to avoid dependence. Not sure why you had a livre by.But everything is okay it appears.
