Customer Question
My daughter is 17...

My daughter is 17 years old and had a panic attack yesterday at around 5:00. it lasted about 5 minutes and then she was okay. she slept well last night but her heart rate has not calmed down since the attack she said that she is not still feeling any anxiety but the racing heart is causing her to feel extremely weak and dizzy at times

Doctor's Assistant: How have your child's checkups gone? Is your child progressing steadily in height and weight?

Fine. stays the same. she isn't growing anymore, she has been menstruating for 7 years.

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in the child's medical history you think the doctor should know?

She has generalized anxiety disorder but says that she isn't feeling anxious right now

Hello and welcome to Just Answer. I looking forward to assisting you with your question and providing excellent service. A racing heart or elevated heart rate is not from a panic attack. You should seek medical attention right away for her. This is a medical emergency in a child

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.

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.
