Customer Question

Ever since a car accident 2001 whilst sitting in the ambulance (I wasn't badly injured) I suddenly felt as if I had ants crawling from the base of spine to top of head. Ever since then I have suffered panic attacks, mainly at ight and my GP cannot work out why. I have craniosacral treatment, my ecg's are ok but have bnot been referred to a specialist for this. Somehow I feel that my CNS has been affected all these years and I cannot tolerate anti depressive meds. as they elevate my BP. Please help me with some advice.

I would suggest you may be suffering from a form of PTSD. This could result in paresthesias and panic attacks as you describe. This would best be evaluated and treated by a mental health professional, preferably one who specializes in PTSD.
