Hi, I have been the same for 20 years. I find a low dose of drug like Paxil plus a low dose of benzo helps. I am going thru therapy. You need to find a psychiatrist for meds and a psychologist for the therapy. Find one that knows about panic and cognitive behavioral therapy. It is a viscous circle u get caught up in an need the drugs and therapy combined.
I would talk to your dr or maybe go see a psychiatrist. Going to A psychiatrist may sound scary. But they know way more about medications for issues like this than a regular dr. I went to my regular dr first and felt like they were just guessing at which meds to give me.
Then I went to a psychiatrist and he knew right away what could help me based on my symptoms. It still can take some time to find the right medications that work for you. Also seeing a counselor has helped me a lot.
I take cymbalta and Zoloft and a low dose of klonopin which I'm weaning off that now
It can and will get better you just have to reach out and get some help.
