Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for writing to health care magic
The symptoms u are describing could most commonly be due to a panic attack. In this u will have short lasting periods of dizziness, severe anxiety, restlessness, palpitations, excessive sweating, shortness of breath, tingling and numbness, confusion and difficulty concentrating in any work. These occur for 15 mins and start without any reason. They cause a lot of distress. Other conditions like hypoglycaemia, hyperventilation syndrome, thyroid disorders could cause similar symptoms.
Hope this helps u
Thanks and regards

First stop worrying about self, because it is futule to try to understand the body mechnisms.
Consult an experienced physician and make sure that there are no underlying problems.
Check blood pressure, blood routine investigation, thyroid test etc can help, but only under physician's prescription.
Once problem cause is found, start treatment as per his advice.
Worrying can never curre problems but can enhnce them.
There are procedures for every aspect. Stick to them, because procedures are the outcome of experience.
Wishing good future.

Psychiatrist Dr. Srikanth Reddy's  Response
Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.
From the description that you have given, it could be possible that you could be having anxiety disorder. Such sudden episodes that occur to you everyday are called panic attacks and are a presentation of panic disorder.
The possible treatment options are :
1) Medications: Sertraline, venlafaxine, fluoxetine, agomelatonin etc.
2) Talk therapy: Cognitive behavioural therapy.
3) Others: Diet and regular exercise.
4) Clonazepam, propranolol will reduce the anxiety momentarily.
But please do attend a psychiatrist who can talk to you in much details about your problem and come to a definite diagnosis.
The problem you are having is not very severe and it can be solved.
Hope I am able to answer your concerns.
If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

Wish you good health,
Dr. Srikanth Reddy M.D.
