Psychiatrist 's  Response

Welcome to HealthcareMagic Forum

You appear to have panic attack. Panic attacks can occur in physical and psychological illness. Panic attack may occur due to psychological or medical reasons. Usually benzodiezepines are given during acute panic attack.

It is better to rule out psychological reasons (panic disorder, GAD, stress and depression) and physical reasons (cardiac illness, thyroid imbalance, anemia or increase BP).

For evaluation and management you can meet nearby psychiatrist as your symptoms started after a panic attack.

Wish you Good Health and all the best.
