Our expert says:
OI'm certain that you can be helped, but you MUST see a specialist psychiatrist and not a GP or gynae, to assess your condition and to review possible treatments in view of your pregnancy, as not all treatments would be adviseable during pregnancy. Sedatives should NEVER be used long-term to treat panic attacks as there are far more effective treatments you should have had long ago. Apart from other meds ( which, as I say, need to be considered carefully to take your pregnancy into account ) CBT counselling can help a lot to control anxiety and panic, and would have no risks to the pregnancy
