Brief Answer:
Panic Attacks

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

I have gone through your query. Burning sensation and choking feeling are commonly seen during panic attacks or Anxiety. Try to overcome your anxiety by keeping yourself busy and socialize more often. These may be due to hypothyroidism too. I advise you to visit a local Endocrinologist for clinical examination and investigation like thyroid profile.

If everything came out normal then consult a local psychiatrist for medicines which are prescription only medicines.


Hope i have answered your query. Let me know if you have any further questions.

Brief Answer:
investigations

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the follow-up. To differentiate between it you need some blood tests like Complete Blood Count and thyroid profile.
If test report is altered then the cause can be found out accordingly. If they are normal then cause as Anxiety can be considered.

Your symptoms may be due to hormonal imbalance or anxiety. That is why i advised you to consult an endocrinologist.

Brief Answer:
tiredness is a symptom

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for the follow up. Glad that you booked investigations.
Tiredness doesn't trigger anxiety. In fact it is just opposite, Anxiety lead to the symptom of tiredness. Taking omega 3 fatty acid (anti oxidant) reduces your weakness and in turn decreases your anxiety. It is just like symptomatic treatment.

In home natural remedies include eating healthy and nutritious, do exercise like yoga and meditation, keep yourself occupied in some work.

Feeling of moving ground may be due to dizziness and weakness and it become a psychiatric problem if you start believing it.
