I can't tell you why: You have these symptoms. I do recommend medical evaluation to check for underlying medical problems. There a # of ways to address anxiety: cognitive behavioral therapy, behavior modification, individual psychotherapy, group psychotherapy, psychotropic medications, qi gong, tai chi, acupuncture, acupressure, homeopathy, meditation, yoga, exercise program or progressive muscle relaxation (to mention.

Panic Attacks: Panic attacks r from release of adrenaline when there's no need 4 flight or fight response. If u can chill out 4 abt 15 mins (when the adrenaline will wear off), it will pass. Panic gets worse when u freak out + tell yrself it's never going 2 end, leading 2 continued re-release of adrenaline. Exposure therapy from a trained therapist helps. If your nasal spray is a stimulant, it may be a factor.
