Panic attacks are the body’s natural reaction to stress.
Panic attacks can feel like impending doom, but they usually subside within 30 minutes.
Panic attacks are anxiety and anxiety is a natural response when the body feels threatened. A lot of people have panic attacks when they are in a fight or flight response. I have anxiety and panic attacks all of the time and lately they have been causing me trouble with driving. I don’t know when the problems started, but it’s getting worse. When I get behind the wheel of the car, I freeze up and I can’t drive. I cry and I shake and I feel hot all over my body. The feeling of worry, stress, and anxiety lasts until I get out of the vehicle. There are some things that I can do to help with the panic attacks. I always eat healthy foods that give me energy, vitamins, and minerals. I also use medical marijuana from time to time. Medical marijuana can be very helpful when it comes to panic attacks. Medical marijuana can make our body feel more calm and at ease. When I start to feel anxious or stressed or worried that I am going to have a panic attack, I use medical marijuana products. I have a vape pen in my car as well as a couple of marijuana joints. I usually take an edible or two before I get in the car even if I’m not going to be behind the wheel. Whenever I get near a car, I have to medicate with marijuana before going anywhere.
