This may be more of a mental health question than pregnancy, but I have extreme anxiety every time I go for a dr appointment. In March 2010 I almost had a heartattack from diet meds my dr prescribed for me (severe tachycardia an I had to be rushed to the ER with the paramedics having to take drastic measures to keep me from having a heartattack). Needless to say, it was traumatic. After that incident I began having severe panic attacks (mimicking heartattack symptoms) a d was back in the ER 2 more times, the last time Jan 2011. I was prescribed Valium, but only took it when I HAD to, maybe 4 pills since Jan. Well, I'm 7 weeks pregnant (thank God I didn't take one of those pills in my pregnancy before I knew), and I freak out every time I giro the dr and see the blood pressure cuff. I know it sounds silly, but I don't know what to do. Obviously, there are no safe meds to take for this during pregnancy. I'm trying yoga and meditation, but they haven't worked yet. Has anyone had a similar problem or have any suggestions for me?
