Sorry to hear about that but everyone of us passes through a phase in life where we need help. Panic attacks can be frustrating and fearsome too . So its better that you seek professional help from a psychiatrist. Before jumping on to medications he will arrange a few sessions of counselling thats usually very useful. If it fails to help you then one can always think of starting medications such as SSRIs e.g Paroxetine.

So thats the way to go for now.

I hope it answered your query.

I feel better already! Thank you.

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.
