Get yourself to a Dr: As an rn - you must know the lyrics. If your self-care is not adequate - go for the extra help. These attacks can be brought under control in an er - then you can recover fairly quickly and move on. If they linger or worsen, they do not do nearly as well. You know this. Be safe. Get help.
