I suffer from panic attacks not for the same reason but more or less so I can give you some advice to help him as your girlfriend. First of all, he doesn't want to break up with you because of you but because of this problem, because he probably feels he doesn't worth nothing and that he doesn't want to make his problem yours. However, if he breaks up with you he is going to feel really miserable as he would think that this problem is making go away the person he loves. You asked if is this ever going to go away and the answer is it depends. If the panic attacks he suffer are because he feels nervous, uncomfortable or whatever because of sleeping with you, then they will tend to disappear. So I think it would be a great idea trying to talk with him about it, but don't pressure him to tell you. And secondly, whenever you talk about this the best thing you can do is just listen to him, don't try to understand why is this happening because it will drive you mad. It is very hard for everyone that goes through this but in this case I can imagine that for him it could be worse to accept it because he might feel like he is not a real man. Well that is what I think, I really hope it helps you and your boyfriend! Sorry for my spelling mistakes, I am from Spain:) If you need anymore advice I will be glad to help you.View Thread
When i started having anxiety one of my symptons was that i felt my stomach very tight because of the nervousness. So i couldn't barely eat because i would vomit. I went to psychiatrist who prescribed me lorazepam and my symptons almost disappear, i gain weigth but as the nervousness comes and go i haven´t been able to get back to the weigth i had before the anxiety. So, i don't think it is a consequence of the medication but of the anxiety.View Thread
