Hi there

It is now Thursday and since Sunday I have had the above mentioned symptoms and the only other times I have experienced this was when I was suffering from anxiety and panic attacks after my Mother passed away. It was understandable back then because I had an obvious trigger, I don't know what brought this recent cycle on.

I saw a doctor at the Urgent Care clinic yesterday and he prescribed Valium which I am taking but I still feel the exact same symptoms with no relief. When is Valium supposed to take effect? I now feel more anxiety because I have no idea when I'll start to feel better.
