Hi My condition started on 15th Novemeber 2011 when suddenly while working late in office I just got a wierd sensation in my head and I could not concentrate the first thought that came in my mind was that I was havling an attack or stroke but I somehow went home and slept. Next day while walking to office I suddenly felt as if I could not walk any more and will collpase . So I took an auto and went to my friends place. Since then I have got my self checked by cariologist , GIs and neurologist . Everyone till now have diganosed me with anxiety and panic disorder. I have had all routine tests(CBC,TLC,DLC,2Decho,ECG,Endoscopy,Liver profile,B12,D3,Thyorid) except for EEG and brain scan.

Brief Answer: My reply is below. Detailed Answer: Hi, Thank you for posting your query. I have noted your symptoms. The most likely diagnosis could be anxiety and panic disorder in your case. However, I would like to exclude any internal brain problem, such as lack of blood flow (ischemia), demyelination (damage to nerve covering) or any infection. For this, MRI of brain should be done. There is no need to worry as all the problems can be treated well with medications. At Mumbai, you could consult Dr XXXXXXX XXXXXXX Neurologist at Hiranandani Hospital in Powai area. I hope my answer helps. Please get back if you have any follow up queries or if you require any additional information.
