My 14 year old brother is really anxious tonight and he won't talk to me but I'm not sure how to approach him. He has really bad panic attacks and I'm assuming thats where its headed tonight. What should I do when he's having a panic attack? I don't have any problems with anxiety so I have no idea what its like, I don't know what to do or how to handle it.Answer Question

In my early 20's I suddenly, and for no apparent reason, started having panic attacks. I went to several doctors, usually the ER because I was convinced I was having a heart attack, and they all said I was having panic attacks, and asked if I was under stress. I didn't feel like I was having any stress at the time. I never did figure out why it was happening, and the doctors were no help. So after awhile, when it would happen, I would take deep, slow breaths , close my eyes and keep saying to myself, you are not having a heart attack, it's just a panic attack, until the feeling passed. Eventually they stopped.
