I have severe panic attacks. My heartbeat is pounding and it

Customer Question

I have severe panic attacks. My heartbeat is pounding and it feels like I'm having a heart attack. My neck hurts, during these attacks and I'm extremely short of breath. The weird thing about it, is at the time I have these attacks, I don't feel stressed out about anything????I have tried every antidepressant under the sun. My doctor said they are for depression and anxiety. All they seem to do is make me feel more depressed. These attacks cause full blown asthma attacks, as well. It's so miserable. My mom gave me some of her Xanax and IT WORKED!! CAN YOU HELP ME????
