Customer Question

i have been having health issues in the last 2 years and from one to another. It started 2years ago at work with heart racing and panic attack, was rushed to ER and later got to know i had GERD and anxiety disorder. I was later doing good but it has been on and off. Had a good ECG a year ago and recently, guess my anxiety is mixed with depression. I will be afraid to hear someone died or afraid of knife. all sorts of bad thought comes to me when hungry and also left upper scapula pains me when hungry. I went for ECG last week and waiting for the result, also had chest xray and also diagnosed positive for thyphoid and malaria. Which of these issues should i deal with. I had MRI of 2 disc prolapse a year ago but i have been managing that after some session of physiotherapy. I need some help, maybe some more questions from you will help me

Thank you for the information,
Recurrence of malaria can occur.
You need to be careful about mosquito bite in those areas/
Mosquito repellents, nets should be used.
Both typhoid & malaria need urgent & adequate treatment.
Otherwise, those can cause complications.
I would advise to consult an infectious disease specialist.
He would be suitable for treating both.
In addition, please try to avoid anxiety & stress.
I hope this information helps.
If there’s anything else I can do, please let me know.
