It is not usually necessary - but talk to your doctor about the options.

I had the FNA done in August. I too suffer anxiety attacks, but this was really a walk in the park. My endo sprayed my neck the then stuck the needle in. There was some discomfort and mild pain, but not as bad as I imagined it.

Good Luck! You can do it!
