Get help: It will only worsen if you do not address whatever is triggering these. See a therapist / psychologist, who can help you identify and work through the issue(s) at root. Your dr or a psychiatrist can rx meds to help reduce frequency & severity while you work w/therapist. Good luck!

Anxiiety Attacks....: Anxiety and panic attacks can be a very scary and debilitating experience. In a nutshell, the first thing to understand is that anxiety/panic occurs as a signal to you that something needs to be addressed that is being denied or ignored. When anxious, ask yourself: what is bothering me right now? Something not addressed in your life? Seek counseling to help with finding the answers.

The right way: The best way to get over anxiety and panic attacks is to seek a psychologist specialized in cbt and/or a psychiatrist for treatment. These symptoms are not difficult to control with the help of a competent professional. It is harder to do this alone. Some suggestions and advice may help, but you will feel more confident and in control if you follow a structured proven treatment program.

CBT or Meds: Although medications (ssris, benzodiazepines such as xanax, (alprazolam) and non-benzos such as bus par) are effective for many people, cognitive-behavioral therapy is also an extremely effective approach. Cbt teaches you the ways in which your thoughts about physiological sensations (and situations), influence your feelings, and behaviors. A key component is exposure to these sensations, thoughts, events.
