Panic

I’am a 70 year old man. I’ve had migraines for as long as I can remember. I wanted to mention one thing, among many others, that happens to me at times when I feel I first feel an attack coming. I have never heard anyone address this on this forum even though I know it happen to others too.

When I feel the first hint that an attack is coming, I experience what I call a panic attack with fear. I start doing every thing I have learned over the years to stop it. However, the panic and fear seems to take over. I try and do thing to redirect my thoughts but I have at this point not had to much success doing that.  Is there anyone else out there that has experienced this?

In the last two years I have been having double vision when an attack starts. I go to a neurologist that speciallies in the treatment of migraines. His only answer concerning the double vision is to get an eye patch and cover one eye. When I do that I can see fine with the one eye.

Thanks for any comments you would like to share.
