I had severe waves of this for months. I started noticing a pattern that it would happen mid afternoons daily.

 

When I could, I would try to be with people as much as possible, mainly my husband. That gave me someone else to focus on and talk to.

 

Walking helped me a lot - if it was possible. I would keep moving. It seemed to help me relieve the intensity of it, and I'd feel better after. Even at all hours of the night! I know not everyone is safely able to walk at 3am though. I would bring my dog along.

 

Regular mindfulness meditation, but not necessarily when I was in the throes of it. But, I think over time the meditation helps change the amydala's fight or flight response incrementally and makes things easier to cope with. When I was already agitated trying to meditate did not help. But the regular practice of it at different times of the day helped me shift some of the ways I reacted to anxiety prone experiences.
