Hello There- I have anxiety, panic attacks, OCD, and also Agoraphobia. I am 25 now and this started when I was about 10 and didn't get bad until I was 18 and then got even worse when I was about 23. I have many symptoms, chest pain, head pain, left arm pain along with back pain, during panic attacks I feel like I am going to pass out, I get light headed almost every day, I know in my mind that it is the panicing that is causing this but sometimes I feel like I am having a heart attack or that I am going to die, does anyone have any suggestions on how to help with these syptoms, I really don't want to try medication, I have heard so many bad things and side effects from them, anyone with any advice email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or post a reply

If you have not seen a psychiatrist, i suggest that you do.
There are other alternative methods to medications such as techniques on how to control the stress and how to relax and concentrate on breathing but you have to see a professional.
Thank you very much for using our website http://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
