Response to crimycarny (Original post)

4. I have had panic attacks in the past

and learned that if you put a plastic or paper bag to your face and breath into it for several minutes it stops the attack. It worked for me!

My attacks were like a heart attack, I imagine. They occurred out of the blue (once even while I was sleeping). The first time I suddenly felt my heart beating so hard and fast I could actually see my chest going up and down. The next time was during the day and I managed to drive myself to the hospital but by the time I got to their door it had stopped and I went home. After I had them a few times while awake I learned about them and what to do when it happened again. The odd thing is is that I was not upset or anxious about anything any of the times that they happened. My doctor thought it possibly was subliminal and I got help/therapy for anxiety. I haven't had any in over 20 years now.
