Just learnt something new and wish to say sorry to the person who stated that panic attacks usually do not last longer then a day - I did some research and yes they only are meant to last a day, anxiety attacks can however last months but are less severe. Again sorry for the mistake. I just learnt that I know longer suffer from panic attacks, well to be honest only rarely, once every 6 months or so. They are no longer a big deal though. I suffer from anxiety attacks. I thought that they were one and the same. From experience I would not say they are less severe though.
