I recently had this physical panic attack for a couple of days due to hormones. Ativan was a great help. I'm good at calming myself down, so I know it wasn't my mental state, it was a physiological something going on.

hi micki,

just went and read up on that drug. due to the way it says to take it and potential issues with taking it too long or stopping ti too abruptly. if i were to take something like that, i'd want to do it rarely.

so may i ask you how you took it. how much, how often, for how long, etc?

thanks,

I've been on it almost non-stop for 2 years. I've had an oral steroid taper and several injections, but I can't remember getting that panicky feeling before. I suspect I did, though. My most recent burst of pred was an injection. Today I started on 20mg of pred. I was on 40mg daily a couple of years ago for several months and developed myopathy that resolved when I weaned off it.

thanks micki,

now that things are feeling better in my upper back, but sitting the last two nights was really making my neck muscles go into spasm and making this icky feeling come on, the pain really feels to be radiating from my neck, C-spine. wonder if the bad disc they found in my neck during an MRI last year is pressing on some kind of nerve or something. need to go to the doctors and ask what can be done for this. really not as much pain as icky feeling, neck spasms, temperature not being regulated properly, headache, digestive system not digesting its food, etc.
