Hello.. My name is Ashlee, I'm 18. I was diagnosed with Bipolar a couple months ago and right now I am on mood stabalizers (APO-Divalproex) and medication for my panic attacks (APO- Clonazepam). For the past three hours I have been feeling sharp pains in my chest that prevent me from breathing deeply. I also feel like my throat is closing up and my vision goes blurry every once and awhile. I'm trying very hard to stay calm but I can't. The pain is bringing me to tears.. I took 2 Clonazepam (0.5 MG) about an hour and a half ago and they don't seem to be helping at all. Every time I stand up and try to do something to take my mind off of it I get the spins. If anyone has any tips on how to make panic attacks go away, please let me know. It will be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advanced.
