However, this phobia has gotten more under control, but I still have the attacks at night. It's not all the time, in fact, it seems to come at random moments. I cannot figure out what is causing them at this point. It has nothing to do with emotional stressors early in the day, diet, etc.
Now, it feels as though I am having the episodes without any of the mental anxiety, just physical. I no longer know how to talk myself out of the negative thinking because there was no negative thinking prior to it happening.
Is it possible I am experiencing something other than anxiety at this point? Either way, what do I do to combat something that seemingly has no source?
