vjsnowprincess Posted September 6, 2005 Report Share Posted September 6, 2005 Sorry this post is so long...I haven't been around in awhile. I got married in December and it has been a harrowing few months.The wedding was a very stressful time, and it brought out the worst in POTS for me. But it also inculded panic attacks that, for awhile, were every day, and forced me to retreat to my home for months. I would not be able to even go to the store by myself. It started as POTS symptoms, which we all know well, but then began to include panic attacks for fear of havings POTS symptoms and passing out in public. I am currently being treated for anxiety and depression.I have had an amazing turn-around with weekly therapy sessions (since May) for anxiety-and the anxiety drug Ativan. (Which I am not taking currently as I am trying to get pregnant).I am curious if others have had sucess managing symptoms with anxiety treatment, or if there are others who also suffer from anxiety.My therapist says that since anxiety and POTS are both connected to the autonomic nervous system, that it is why I have found my symptoms reduced with anxiety treatment.I would like to know your thoughts on the connection.
