2. Have you ever rode roller-coasters or theme-park rides as a juvenile? Did you particularly enjoy them? I, for instance, have horrible motion sickness and cannot stomach them; though driving is not a problem for me.
3. Have you tried focusing on other parts of the scenery (like the lanes directly in front of you)? Have you tried applying blinkers to yourself with your hands and seeing how you felt then?
4. What if you are driving? Is there a difference in sensation as you have a firm hold of the steering wheel [if you wish to: try it slowly, at first, down a straight, unpopulated road]?
5. Have you had anxiety or panic attacks in the past unrelated to the current driving scenario?

- Attacks are created in your mind, focus on something when you think PA is coming, try to calculate complex numbers like 25*25, 15*15 etc, try counting down from 100 to 0 in 3 increments (100; 97; 94,) etc.
Eliminate the use of caffeine and other stimulants. Stimulants aggravate blood sugar problems and deplete too important neurotransmitters, serotonin and norepinephrine, adversely affecting mood and energy.
