How Long Has A Panic Attack Lasted For You?

How Long Has A Panic Attack Lasted For You?

I've never had a 6 day panic attack... I have major depressive disorder, anxiety disorder, panic disorder, manic depressive, and blah blah blah blah...
But this has never happened.....

I suffered with Panic Attacks when I was younger and had a tons of drama in my life at the time. As I aged, they began to dissipate. Now maybe I've had two in the last four years. These were probably related to the heat. I have to take meds when I get them because I began to hyperventilate. They last until I take my medication and then I'm able to calm down. I used to struggle with Panic for about 45 minutes to an hour. Now I practice mindfulness meditations on you tube an they seem to help.

I can relate, I have had anxiety attacks for like 3 days at a time and it is horrible and not a good feeling. Maybe you should try some relaxation techniques.

Yes it's really difficult, it feels like it's lasting forever and no matter wot u do nothing helps, I double up on my diazepam but still feel the panic monster sitting on my shoulder, I keep concentrating on deep breathing although this can take forever to work at times, I would def speak with ur dr, see if u need a relaxant or if meds r not working well xx

Usually a couple of hours. I hate taking them when I can get away.
