Medication can be helpful, but there are many stress management techniques such as controlled breathing and meditation that can greatly help.
This may be discovered through trial and error with yourself, but there are a variety of tools that people find helpful such as counting techniques, holding grounding objects, breathing exercises, showers, touch from another, etc. I would look into DBT skill building and build a plan that works best for you. If you have a mental health provider, state that you would like to build a plan together for when you start to feel one coming on.
