I remember my first anxiety attack as if it was yesterday; I was working late at a small manufacturing plant.  The only office worker still there, I was taking a break to stretch my legs and get some fresh air.  I was just walking back to my desk when my whole upper body went numb.  My heart started beating rapidly; I got tunnel vision, and felt light headed and weird.  It kept getting worse and worse.

I walked out to the manufacturing floor How to Buy Xanax 1 Mg Online without Prescription of the plant where there were other workers who would see me if I keeled over, and informed them of how I was feeling.  As my condition continued to escalate, I was sure that I was having a heart attack, so I laid down on the cement floor and had them call for an ambulance.  When the ambulance arrived, my blood pressure and heart rate were through the roof.  Blood pressure of 190 over 150 and heart rate of 240 beats a minute.  They rushed me to the emergency room where I was hooked to an EKG machine, and given a sedative to calm me down.  They also took blood to check for an enzyme present during heart attack.

Luckily, all tests came back negative for heart attack.  The next week or so every time I tried to leave the house, my heart would start pounding out of my chest, then seem to calm down when I went back in and laid down.  Over the next couple of weeks I had many other tests done to rule out other problems.  Eventually, it was diagnosed as an anxiety attack and I was given Xanax to treat the symptoms.  The Xanax really helped arrest the attacks once they started, unfortunately it’s not a good preventive treatment.  It also left me feeling groggy and tired, and seemed to affect my short term memory a little bit
