I had a panic attack tonight. They have been happening more and more often. Even now I am still suffering from a lot of it. I am not really sure what to do. I cant see my doctor for two weeks. Should I go to the ER ?
Panic attacks, if they are purely psychiatric in nature, NEVER KILL.
But to come to this conclusion, you must have certain physical conditions ruled out. If this has not been done till now, please ask you doctor to do so.
If you are already diagnosed with any of the psychological problems which cause panic attack (Panic attack is just a symptom which could occur as part of many psychological problems.) then you should be having treatment. Both talking therapies(psychotherapies) and medicines help, which needs a psychiatric consultation first.
Hope this helps, Good luck.
