Had a panic attack. Have sinking feeling. Weakness and loss of appetite. Worry?

A couple of months ago I had a panic attack which gave me a real fright. However, I still have a sinking feeling in my chest, a feeling of anxiety and general weakness. I have lost my appetite and feel short of breath . We have a nursing sister at work who has been checking my BP regularly but no qualified doctor nearby – should I be worried, or am I just making myself worse by worrying?

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

Worry worsens any disease / Disease causes worry – a vicious cycle sets in.
Consult an Internist to exclude any organic disease.
Psychiatric assessment and assistance will help in the long term...

Take care     
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
