Rsk, you are not alone. My anxiety/ panic attacks are often accompanied by migraines and the ER has become my favourite place. It is so embarassing when doctors look at you condescendingly, ask a bunch of dumb questions, CT scan your head, chest or whatever else they could think of, take blood more blood and test, test, test .. then shoot you up with valium and tramadol and send you home to sleep. My file there is about two inches thick and growing. Sometimes I feel so disgusted with myself. Successful on the outside and a closet wreck. Only the ER and my string of shrinks know.

I recently started neurofeedback and EMDR. Benign they say. Better than meds they say. The first session a couple weeks ago sent me to the ER with a bad migraine and panic attack. Then they say they will try another protocol. Well since that last one, I have been eating Benzos like candy ... anxiety attack after the next after the next, punctuated with panic attacks. I don't know how much longer I can take this. Something has gotta give.
