Gut Connection for Panic Attack
Charity (faithville, Us) on 09/05/2021: Panic attacks are interesting. I had them five hours a night for years on end and they seemed to be hooked to my stomach. I would wake up sick to my stomach with my heart racing and sweating and thought I might throw up or die as my chest pounded. Five hours later I would calm down and fall back asleep. I also had night terrors since childhood until I was late 50's. I had a little pomeranian/dachsund 88--2000, that looked like a papillon, and she would entertain everyone with her silliness. She would run to me when I would be having these attacks and snuggle up. I did learn later that distractions would help and started to play solitaire cards to get my mind to focus on something else. In the early 90's, after I had neck surgery to remove a chip from a disc that broke off, the doctors put me on prozac and I slept a 12 hour night and a 4 hour nap during the day for 3 years. During that time I had no yeast infections, could eat most foods I normally had to avoid, and was not emotional. I did gain weight and was still seeing one of my counselors, as a friend.
