Today I had a terrible panic attack. Mine are few hrs long with a racing heart and trembling. After the radiation I had 3 attacks and all 3 they were different that what I was used to . Few weeks ago while in treatment I had 2 shots of epidural with steroids due to a car accident back in December. After the shots both in the same day , I had a toxic reaction. My heart went 150 beats / minute , my head was spinning and my face was red red red . Do you remember the tomatoes festival in Spain , when people are fighting by throwing ripe tomatoes to each other. That’s how my face looked like . Does anyone has increased anxiety after the radiation treatment? Is it fair to say it’s a side effect of the treatment? Thank you

Bogie, whether a side effect of radiation or cancer itself, have you considered seeking professional advice to help manage the panic attacks?

Do you know about oncology social worker? These may be members of your cancer team that you can talk to about where and help to get resources. Here’s some more information:

Panic attacks are no fun.
