Avoidance is not usually the best way to deal with anxiety, as it tends to reinforce the idea that things must be avoided rather than dealt with.

Such episodes can be treated by professionals in a number of ways, from desensitizing therapy to medication (in some cases). It is difficult, if not impossible, to deal with them yourself. We suggest seeing a professional who specializes in anxiety problems.
