I guess I'll start off with my symptoms...
I won't go into too much detail, but basically, at the beginning of this year, I was feeling pain in my arms and legs. The pain would always be changing, and would be in different parts of my limbs. My doctors suggested a ton of test. It was during my first teat (a bone scan) that I had a panic attack.
Ever since then, the pain in my limbs has subsided (with occasional reoccurrence), and I seem to have a lot of panic-related symptoms when traveling.
Recently, I've become a bit of a hypochondriac - I'm always worried about my heart (having a heart attack, it stopping, etc.) During a midterm recently, I had to leave the room for a bit to catch my breath.
In less than a month, I'll be getting on a plane to London for an exchange program, and I'm really worried about having an attack on the plane. I've always been a nervous flyer, and this trip will be 8hrs!
I'm still passionate about going, but I'm afraid that I'll start freaking out about my heart, and that I'll have a really bad panic episode in front of complete strangers!
Does anyone have any tips for air travel? Are there some audio tapes online I could listen to to calm me down or something? I'm nervous about the idea of taking some sort of sedative, but I'm still open to it.
