    I've been getting them all of a sudden. I always thought it was fake.

    I suffer from anxiety...all work related though, especially near the end of a quarter, and when I fly.
    I keep a bottle of Xanax within reach at all times.

    No, but I've been seriously thinking of faking them just to get some Xanax.

    No it's real . I went through a divorce and a death in the same year and got them . I got on meds for about a year and a half and now I'm fine .
    It's real shit . I got so bad I would lay on the floor after taking a shower knowing I had to go into work . It was a struggle to even get out of my car to go into my favorite cd/comic store at the time and it's a place I love .
    Get some help . You can get over it . I'm totally fine now .
    I never thought it was real until it happened to me .

    This comes up every so often. Here:
    1) You are not nuts or alone in theses attacks. Millions have them.
    2) GO SEE A DOCTOR. Meds will help.
    3) Don't come here asking med advice. lol

    I had them for several months after the birth of each of my kids. Totally out of nowhere and hit me like a ton of bricks each time. I thought it was bogus till it happened to me but it's no joke. Meds for a brief period of time helped. Honestly just knowing I could take the meds made them stop.

    Yeah same here. I don't get panic attacks just bad anxiety at times. Mostly work related. Trying to build up the nest egg for FU money/early retirement fund.

    I got them in my early twenties. I would get such bad anxiety that I thought I was going to throw up. Then the fear of an attack coming on would trigger one. I would get them in situations where I could not quickly extricate myself like being in a car, on a plane, or in a meeting for work. I think depression and anxiety go hand in hand. I was miserable with my work and living situation at the time.

    Sorry that happened to you. The honesty is refreshing.

    I think it is all psychosomatic. But it is very real. I'm hyperventilating as we speak. Nothing brought it on again. I get them for no reason.

    True, we cannot dish out medical advice, see a doctor.

    Exactly right. I followed this advice and am enjoying life much more. Sunday night would cripple me as I would dread having to leave home and go to work in the AM.
