I am dealing with this emotional trauma. I am in immense panic attack and sometime I feel Extreme hot and cold sensations and fluctuations in body. Also, I feel sad sitting at home. I have developed a slight fever (99 C) in last 2-3 days along with Extreme hot and cold sensations and fluctuations and panic attacks. Is there something serious?

Hello
Thanks for your query. I understand the emotional turmoil that you are undergoing. Grief reaction is normal after loss of a loved one. Depression and anxiety can commonly acvompany grief reaction. Hence I would suggest you seek gelp from a clinical psychologist for supportive psychotherapy and grief work. If symptoms di not resolve in 2 to 3 month period I would suggest a thorough psychiatric evaluation. Wish you speedy recovery.

Hi there ~

You are suffering from depressive disorder and anxiety. They both go hand in hand. It is easier to say that there is a cure for this, however most medications take about a week or two to start acting and make you feel better. However anxiety medications work faster. There is nothing serious with your condition as long as you have had an EKG done. I will follow up with your psychiatrist as soon as you can.

I hope this helped. Take care and have a lovely day !

Hi there, thanks for asking. feeling grief is a natural experience in life, especially for parents. If it takes more than 6 months it does not assumed as a normal grief. As you mentioned it is a mixture of depressive and anxiety symptoms. Depression can come from preoccupation about the past and anxiety can come from unclear future if you feel so. It could be managed with a medication, talk sessions or both. If it is left untreated, it can cause more impaired days of your life. Taking help from your family and social network and being more engaged with them can lead to healing sooner than expected as well. You may ask your doctor to begin the therapy upon your preference. I wish you the best health.
