Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

You seem to be suffering from an agoraphobia with panic attacks. It is possible that you had an underlying dormant anxiety disorder which could have got trigerred by the alcohol. I would advise you to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed psychological assessment and further treatment. There are effective treatment options - in the form of medication or counselling / psychotherapy which will help you overcome your problem.

Wish you all the best.
