So... I have severe panic disorder and health anxiety. Every little ache or pain causes me to start panicking or go to the ER. I've tried many coping mechanisms and I'm also on medication but can't seem to find anything that really works in terms of grounding techniques. Does anyone know any herbs or suppliments that help with anxiety?

      I have this very bad and have for most of my life. Everyone’s suggestions are awesome. I found an app called just answer that I use sometimes to ask a specialist about what I’m experiencing instead of going to the ED. Maybe it’ll help you. You do have to pay for each question but it’s saved me a lot of emergency department visits getting reassurance from a professional. But I also have learned recently with my OCD that probably isn’t something I should be doing. But in times of desperation I do it.

      I use grounding techniques alot. When u are concentrating so hard on grounding it's hard to feel the anxiety as well. It does work

      This was talked about with my therapist about grounding techniques. Changing your environment can help, if you’re inside go outside if you’re outside go inside.

      This sounds like something you may need to speak with a therapist about! I know it’s hard to get into one but ERP/CBT specialists would probably work great for you!

      My partner has been taking Ashwagandha vitamins but I would check with your doctor or use your best judgment if you're already on mood elevators

      CBD oil!! Take at least 40mg (I only say this cause I was dumb and started on only 10mg and thought it didn’t work- until my therapist told me proper dosage)
