I haven't seen a therapist for years but when I did years ago they give me anxiety meds that do not work. And yes they have diagnosed me with panic attack but 24/7 this is getting out of hand. My doctor has checked my circulation and EKG and said stress was the cause but is going to run eye tests on me and eye pressure tests because I told him the pain was behind my eyes. I caught H-pylori in Bali about 15years ago and it caused 3 small holes in my upper GI. The doctor at the time cured this with a bombardment of strong antibiotics within a couple of weeks. Since then I felt better, this is when the attacks started coming on a lot, I was going to the emergency room an a regular basis. I have tamed myself from doing that, but constantly have tightness in my chest unless I am distracted with a few beers, sleep, or exercise. It all floods back, while I am working, at home trying to relax. If i do manage to fall asleep it all comes back shortly after i wake up.
They did some feedback therapy. I got meditation, relaxation exercises that do help some of the time. The feedback therapy just made me feel more anxiety, and they kept me there in a ward because I was in Saudi Arabia working at the time and that is the only place they can give you Xanax. I work in Alexandria Egypt now, so not much help in that area here unless you have suggestions/
Not that I know of. Please explain.
OK I think I understand. What type of tests are these that I should suggest to my doctor here?
I meant therapy. How do I find out. From the link I believe they are panic attacks. My symptoms match everything I am reading about them. Where do i go from here?
Not that I know of. I am in Alexandria Egypt. Are there ant referrals for one around here that speaks good English?
I appreciate this.
Thank you very much Dr. chip. You have been very patient with me. Have a great day.
