I started having panic attacks in Jan. My MD increased my Zoloft from 50 to 100mg. I'd been on the low dose Zoloft for depression. The panic attacks have decreased, but not left. Now, with the increased Zoloft I am having palpitations. I've had several EKGs that were normal. I was put on an event monitor and all of the EKG events have been normal. I went to the ER this past Sat. with a racing/pounding heart. My heart is ok, it's anxiety. They gave me Xanax in the ER, which helped. I'm scared. I just want this to stop. I see a counselor too. I feel like I'm going crazy and my MD and my counselor say I'm not and that this will get better. These palpitations and the panic attacks come out of the blue. I'm only 37 and work in the healthcare field and feel paralyzed by fear. Please help me.

My goal was to live to retire and I guess having to take early retirement because of health reasons wasn't exactly the way I had planned things. I just can't stay in that building that is reeking mildew...
