I have panic attacks, not very often, but I definitely get them when i'm confronted with anything mathematical. If I'm in a party and someone suggest a card game, I might get one of those dreaded attacks!:o It's also hard for me to be in a classrom - I feel locked in a situation afraid I'll be asked questions I won't be able to answer. Negative past experiences is to blame for these scary feelings and I think psychotherapy might be helpful in trying to overcome some of them. BUT it's very important to find a therapist who's knowledgeable and empathetic. I would personally prefer someone who has a LD him or herself.
