Kharama, panc attacks are not much fun and having panic disorder, which involves frequent unprovoked attacks is a nightmare. Ive been there done that. I still get them sometimes.

There are 3 pathways to management of panic attacks as far as Im aware:

1) Yoga & meditation

2) Cognitive behavioural therapy either by a clinical psychologist, psychiatrist or self help book

3) Medication

Generally all three provide the best solution but everyone responds differently to the different types of treatment.

I personally am prescribed valium for panic attacks and anxiety, but I have also been through CBT with a psychologist and done the self help course.

Hope this helps get you started and keep posting.
