Xmas day out of the blue I had a panic attack. since then I have had severe anxiety which I am struggling with. gp gave me beta blockers and 5mg sertraline. I have no appetite and waking 4 am and taking half diazepam to sleep a bit longer. today is day 6 and worst so far. can't do normal duties with kids hubby came home to do school pick up and clubs. In bed feeling helpless. never suffered before Xmas no history of anxiety but now feeling pretty poorly. am I doing right thing be resting as today worst ever. went back to gp who said need to allow more time and changed my betas to 2 80mg slow release. hubby thinks I am going crazy.
