> I figured this one out; whenever I get a cold or the flu, I always get post nasal drip.
> Whenever I get post nasal drip, I kind of have that "lump in the throat" feeling. When I lay down especially, it almost feels like I might choke.
> THus the anxiety increases- I feel like I can't breathe well and that is what triggers anxiety/panic attacks.
> Klonopin/benzo's don't seem to help when it's the PNdrip, almost seems like it makes me feel worse.
> Any ideas how to clear this up soon without having a full blown anxiety attack?

Try a nasal spray like afrin, along with a more sedating (older) antihistamine like benedryl. Try to avoid anxiety provoking cold meds (taken by mouth), like pseudoephedrine (and similar stimulants). You can also try zinc, vitamin C and Echinacea-Goldenseal.
