Hi I suffer from servere anxiety attacks everyday. It is really weird because I do not suffer from depression. I am in the middle of trying to find out what is the root cause of it, so could anybody tell me what external or physical factors cause anxiety attacks? I definately know it is not it "all in my head" because one minute I am fine the next minute I have an attack, it is so frustrating and really interfering with my life. Please help me.

Please help me.If you havent had a recent physical or blood work done I would start there. It could be as simple as your sodium levels are off. Also look at what things surround the triggers. It might be helpful to talk with someone too.

  • I too suffered from similar symptoms and was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder. I spent almost a year in therapy with no breakthru. My family doctor started me on Paxil a medication that was first thought to work on mild depression but later was found to work best for anxiety issues. I have been taking it for almost eight years now and (knock on wood) have not had any further attacks. Good luck!Hi I suffer from servere anxiety attacks everyday.
