Hi, I am sorry for the delay. My name is***** your recent diagnosis, it sounds likely you were having a panic attack. I know they feel awful. Has it passed? Most panic attacks start, peak, and stop within 20 - 30 minutes. How can I help?

What Customers are Saying:

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

Outstanding response time less than 6 minutes. Answered the question professionally and with a great deal of compassion.

KevinBeaverton, OR

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.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!

I am a 37 year old woman who experienced some periods of anxiety and depression in my 20s. As a result I committed to staying on Paxil 30mg to prevent relapse. I had almost 10 years with no anxiety or depression at all. Occasional normal anxiety and stresses of life, but never at a dysfunctional level. On Jan 8th I woke up with anxiety and I can't shake it! My Dr upped the Paxil to 40mg (on the 9th) and then my Psychiatrist suggested adding Lamictal (tittating slowly at 25 mg) to help. But I'm up and down. All the CBT info I read says to face my fears, but all I'm afraid of is these feelings lasting! I'm generally not a nervous person so I don't know what to do with this nervousness. … read more
