Panic Attack



Hello All,

I'm just on a little visit back, not sure if im coming back for good but just having a look around again. It's been like 2 years now, being on Lexapro and I was doing pretty good, I got lots of heart palpitations recently so I thought it a good time to cut down, i was on like 8mg for like 2 years, and over the last 2 months I have cut down to 6mg so nearly half a tablet, Im feeling so much better, no dizzyness anymore bit more panicy but that is to be expected being on it for so long! Anyway, im trying to do my best and relax and maybe even go back to work. I have been looking for a job recently but its very hard to find something that can fit with my condition, i need somewhere close to my home and not dealing with people all day! ITS HARD. But hey, im trying, cutting down on my pills and there are genuine times recently that i felt normal again for the first time in 3 years! It is amazing.. I just hope these palpitations aren't something bad or something new developing and i can finally start to live again.. Its been a dam hard 3 years, but i still have hope where other would give up (most of the time :) ). Thats all, just thought id give all my old friends an update. Thank you for your help and you really did help and support me in the beginning so thank you guys! x

Just only less than an hour ago i had my first bad panic attack in more than i guess 6 months! Been on Lexapro a long time now and that seemed to have made them go away but today OUT OF NOWHERE i got one of the worst kind of attacks i used to get! It was hell, still feeling it a bit as i write... :( I was painting my apartment today and i guess i must have pulled a mustle or something cos i got this really bad pain in my back, then it spread to my chest (its still there now) and down to my tummy making me feel sick, i started to freak out a bit and my whole body started to tingle, i felt like i was going to faint and thats when it started i started to shiver uncontrollably. (used to get this kind of panic attack all the time like a year ago! its one of the worst types i ever had to go through) My whole body was just shaking i couldnt even hold my tea (peppermint tea relaxes me when i used to have attacks) i nearly dropped it, it lasted a while and now im trying to relax and control it! i got so scared, i know i learned everything about panic and all, and i though for the most part it was all gone but after this one all those old feelings came flooding back! I felt like i would die... But in my head i said no! This is normal for panic,,, didn't seem to work, thank god my wife was here to hold me, she made me feel so relaxed and calm... hope my attack don't come back and this pain in my back and chest go away, (hopefully just a mustle and nothing more..) Not feeling to good right now, tight chest dizzy sick, pains... :( hope it will go away soon...

Hello everyone, i haven't been on the site for a while now, maybe 2 months or so?! i was on here A LOT, like 5 or 6 times a day, when i started taking Lexapro for my Panic Attacks and Globus Hystericus and it was an AMAZING help for me, and everyone on here helped me so so so much! I couldn't thank you all enough. :)

Well, 7 months later of 10mg Lexapro and i have COMPLETELY changed my life around, i can not tell you how different things are, 7 months ago i could not leave the house, i couldn't go to a shop, talk to family members, be around anything more than 1 person i had no life and when i went on the drug it changed everything, since then i have traveled abroad for 3 months STRAIGHT!! I can go shopping go on a plane go on a train talk to people wait in lines Everything i could never dream of doing again a year ago.

Thanks, hope to hear from all your great people that helped me so much in the past months! This website is a lifesaver.. Well done.... x
