Hi there,

This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Sorry to hear about your daughter's symptoms.

Shaking and twitching, panic attacks can be due to the underlying medical conditions.
Hyperthyroidism or excess thyroid hormone in the body is a common cause.
Pheochromocytoma or tumor in the sympathetic chain or adrenal glands can cause excess catecholamines.
Seizure disorder is another possibility as well.

Serum TSH, free T4, plasma free metanephrine levels, and a brain EEG should be ordered at the least.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
