Question: I continue to have repeated rounds of anxiety related to fear of dying and fears of choking. I have been talking to my psychiatrist about it and i've been taking my meds that were prescribed to me, but sadly these symptoms are persisting. I have been told to focus on practicing positive self talk, but sometimes my anxiety gets me so stressed that i can't help but be afraid of certaqin things. Overall i am not sure what else i should do and any helpful tips or solutions i can get would be very helpful.

Anxiety disorder

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Thanks for choosing health care magic for posting your query.

I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.

You seem to be having a panic disorder which is a type of anxiety disorder. Its good that you have started positive self talks. However it would be wise to start with the medications as well. Paroxetine escitalopram and venlafaxine are the drugs which can help you with the anxiety. Taken regularly they help a lot with the anxiety disorder. Along with this youi may also start with cognitive behavioural therapy. This helps in changing your cognitions and thoughts andhelps you in dealinh with anxiety in a better way.

Hope I am able to answer your concerns.

If you have any further query, I would be glad to help you.

My 4 year old daughter is due to have an MRI in a week. Neurologist says she wants brain and spine due to her not being potty trained yet or even able to realize she has had a bowel movement....she has been to several docs and clinics and no firm diagnosis,... could the neurologist be thinking tethered cord??? She does have Sensory Processing Dissorder, Anxiety with panic attacks, major sleep disruption issues and hallucinations. They are doing a sleep deprived EEG to see if some of her myoclonis is seizure related. She is on meds: Risperidone and clonidine, with 3 mg. of melatonin as well. She has O.T. and P.T. once per week, with alot of motor control issues, gait , balance and ataxia. I feel she may have most definitely a chromosome deletion problem, genetic...somthing in that area. At one point they mentioned DiGeorge Syndrome, then didn t want to test. I had a Fragile X test started, and it came up negative. (my daughter also has alot of tantrums and inconsolable crying where she cannot stop. Where should I go if MRI and EEG come up with no answers...What next??? Her current psychiatrist suggests I stop looking for answers and work with what I have... I dont think that s a good idea...this is my daughter ...Please give me your opinion.... Thank You So Much, Michelle

My heart feels strange sometimes. Sometimes it beats to hard it feels like its going to beat out of my chest. It sometimes has an uneven beat or it skips a beat. I also have anxiety attacks for no reason sometimes. I am a 32 year old male and of a healthy weight. I am very active. I do have neurofibromitosis.

My mum (79) demanded that she come off bisoprolol after taking for 3 years, as she felt she should not have been on it. The doctor agreed and she is now suffering with increased heart rate (120bpm) at times, but wont see a doctor. She suffers generally with her nerves and feels that going back on the bisoprolol again will calm her down. Is she just panicing or will the panic attack be because of coming off the bisoprolol? She also came off bumetanide at the same time, for the same reason (ie she felt she should never have been put on those tablets)

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
