Panic Attacks

Panic Attacks

Paramedics called last night, couldn't move a thing. Eventually was not able to speak. Heart racing and fingers blew up like balloons. Thought I was having a stroke or heart attack. Could barely open my eyes and Paramedics said I was having a panic attack? As soon as they learned from my daughter I have RRMS they knew for sure panic attack. After about 25 minutes I could talk and slowly got back movement. Is this normal???

I had to go off DMTs because of there side effects. Panic attacks are anxiety driven. I have had many and they go away. Deep breathing has helped me.

Amen to that!!! I took klonopin for over 30 years. It's like valuim.now I can't take it anymore because I'm in pain management. That drug class is very physically habit forming . The withdrawals are intense which can cause seizures. 😳 so really weigh the risks and benefits if you go that route. I'm just saying. Everyone is different. So I'm just warning you.

I can imagine, I have panic attacks and they can be pretty bad at times.

I'm sorry you are having this pain and troubles. I take gabapentin for nerve pain. It works really well. It's not a narcotic.plus baclofen for spasity and muscle spasms. My prayers are with you.

Thank you so much for sharing. I am the same, can barely walk for 3 months now. Nerve pain all over. So stiff. This is a hard life to live when I was just so active 4 months ago. I'm hoping to get on Ocrevus cause I hear it help others. Just hoping insurance will cover. I'm glad your doing better. ❤
