A panic attack can last for minutes or hours. You
have to kind of talk to yourself, relax yourself, make
yourself not be paranoid. You're not going to die! I take Xanax every day of my life! Could not drive anywhere by myself, would have to pull off the road and wait, then try again, having to leave my buggy at the store and get out of there. My heart would race, left arm went numb, hands tingle, short of breath. Face would heat up like you painted circles on my cheeks.
