Have you been diagnosed with anxiety?  Are you on medication?  You normally can move during a panic attack.  Give us some more information so we can help you with this.  Have you been diagnosed with anxiety and are you on medication...thanks!

When I have a lot going on, I have a certain smell that I can smell all the time.  Once I relax, (it may take a couple of weeks), the smell goes away.  I was diagnosed with anxiety about 5 years ago, and was put on anxiety medication (Effexor).  Please tell me if this is normal.  I walk on my treadmill about 30 minutes a day, and that helps.  If I stop doing my excersizing, I tend to get anxiety so I try to do things to relax.

Thanks
