I experienced a panic attack a number of years ago, which was quite frightening. Since then I have only experienced one further full attack, but, through controlled breathing I managed to alleviate the attack. I am now suffering with a stiff neck and upper back and throat. Could these be due to stress? There is a history of stress within my family. I work as a health and safety manager, a high level job with lots of responsibility. Your help and guidance is most welcome.
