I used to have extreme anxiety attacks. I would just hide in the dark bedroom with my 'recovery' music after taking a propanolol. Sometime, I would even need my dog to hold/stroke to occupy my hands.
What was going on in the 8 hours before your anxiety attack? I bet there was some sort of trigger. I could always identify a trigger.
