Second opinion] I an suffering from severe panick disorder. It started 6 months ago When I had them before I would meditate and pray and go to sleep . Now I have gerd and have to take medicine advil to sleep. My whole life changed this year I had back surgery have left my job after 40 years of working as a therapist and I can not get rid these panick attack Zoloft 100 mg does not work and clonopan and zanex make more anxious. Any advice,

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you been dealing with this? Is there anything in particular that seems to make the symptoms better or worse?

Sis months only thing that help so far is taking advil at night. I try to mediate and breath but the palpations continue. My heart and blood pressure are good. I have been confined for 3 months because of my back operation.

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

I have checked out head to toe. I have lost 40 pounds because of the anxiety and contemplating to the Renfro for 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!

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!!
