Are there foods that will help the symptoms to subside? Can a person ever truly be free of these attacks that grip so tight, its like a stranglehold. Its like the wheels of a paddleboat hitting you over and over.

Thanks for your comment, with ideas for ridding oneself of this monster malady, wondering if magnesium is found in my multivitamism must check, regardless, thanks for taking the time to read my question concerning panic attacks.
You're welcome. I know magnesium can be calming, but be careful to discuss with your physician. There are so many interactions between nutrients, over-the-counter preparations and meds and a chemical imbalance could make things worse.
True panic attacks are not something that one has conscious control over - they are physiologic, not psychological. While taking measures to stay calm can help, I don't think that this disorder is something that can be controlled entirely by volition
I do believe that good nutrition can help, including cutting out or back on caffeine.
I am learning Yoga techniques my frind in NY is teaching me on the phone as well as vistaril by my psych. Loss of sleep for even one day is a big factor for me as well as I am sure many others too, Thanks for your comment dubuquedogtrainer!!
You're welcome - wish I knew more on the subject to help you. I have not heard of Vistaril for panic attacks. Last I heard they were using short-acting benzodiazepines like Ativan.
Will research it and maybe do it. thank you so much
