Good luck. Try to stay calm when you feel the symptons coming because panic doesn't help. Staying still (and low so you don't fall) and any focusing technique (like the breathing you do) is helpful. Keep drinking water or gatorade if you are able to before the episode hits. I wouldn't recommend eating anything when you are trying to recover because what happens to me is that it only makes me vomit and that's the last thing you need to cope with.
