I have been diagnosed with panic disorder. I wake up in a panic every morning. I have c.o.p.d. My PCP has told me that having c.o.p.d and anxiety together makes it 100 times worse... if I feel like it's hard to breathe, that makes me anxious. If I'm anxious, it makes it hard for me to breathe... a catch 22. I dealt with anxiety for years before I knew about the c.o.p.d though, and the c.o.p.d isn't severe. When my pcp listens to my lungs they are ok and I've had the pulminary tests done also (breathing into the tube) and it is normal... it's so hard to believe I have that much anxiety!!! I'm on Celexa, Lamictal, and Klonipin. I learned that taking the Celexa and the Klonipin helped ease the anxiety tremendously, for the first 4 or 5 days, then it went back to the level it was before. Help?
