Drink in acute distress a strong cup of chamomile tea, you will feel immediate relief. Also, cola and coffee can help. The pressure points for distress sit just below the thumb and under the big toe. If you do not drink or inhaler on hand can give little pressure on these points fast relief. To avoid trouble I also drink before going to bed a strong cup of chamomile tea mixed with rooibos or black tea. Steaming helps me not them I am more anxious, even when the central heating is high I get enough air.
