Thanks for writing in.

It is good that you are going to visit a specialist.

The other possibilities I would like to rule out would be a thyroid disorders, anaemia, electrolyte abnormalities, Vitamin B12 defeciency, Diabetes, Anxiety. Have these conditions been ruled out? The tests that would be required to rule out the above mentioned conditions would be Hemoglobin levels, thyroid function tests, renal function tests, serum electrolytes, Vitamin B12 levels and blood glucose levels etc.

In the meantime , sign up for yoga and relaxation classes to help you relax and breathe easy.

Hope this helps.
