When I first suffered from anxiety and panic a few years ago, I would constantly search the internet for symptoms of what was wrong with me despite reassurances from the doctor.  Even though I would feel good for maybe an hour or so, I would start my 'what if?' thinking.  Have you been going to talk about it with anyone?  I know, for me, the combonation of medication, good support, and a great therapist worked wonders for me because it taught me how to understand my pattern of thinking and now that the panic and anxiety has returned, I am better able to cope this time around even though it is no less challanging.
