Getting down to the specific reason of the attack is one way of getting to a good solution.

I have had panic attacks before as well and I would not go 5 miles away from home or from a hospital of my preference. Getting hit with the wind would give me the chills and hyperventilate ASAP. I had to take medications for a couple of years or two up until I finally decided to stop medications when I strongly decided that I can not continue living a life dependent of medication.

Now, I am free from my medication although I ALWAYS bring one with me just in case life becomes too intense to handle. So what cured me? Self-esteem and courage. But it took time and the medications I had to take during those times helped a lot.

Best of luck!
