I feel for anyone who gets panic attacks - unless you've had them nobody knows just hw bad they can get - I used to think I was gonna die with every one I had. I also couldnt swallow - couldnt breathe and it was horrible. My doctor told me to cool my pulse points when an attack was coming on - ice where possible on the wrists worked good - it shocks the system into working again. If theres no ice shove your wrists under a cold running tap for a few minutes. In case of emergency I used to carry a small spray can of water in my bag (Evian sell it or magicool is good). Spray on your face and pulse points and it stops the attack. Good luck and hope you soon get over the attacks xx

MY partner had a pituitary apolexy 7 weeks ago which he had an operation on, but some of the tumour is still there. He is now on thyroxine 100 mcgs od and hydrocortisone 20mgs morning, 15mgs lunchtime and 5 mgs pm. How much alcholol is he allowed to consume in a day. Also is it possible that the pituiatary gland will work again as it was not all removed. Can hydrocortisone make you aggressive, especially when drinking alchohol his age is 42 years he is 178cm and 102 kgs
i m a clinical social worker. 14 year old client has micradenoma on or near pituitary gland. Some hormone levels were elevated but she was examined by neurologist and no surgery necessary they say. Has all kinds of symptoms -- racing thoughts, visual hallucinations at times, out of control anxiety, rage outbursts, trouble reasoning and little access to insight, preoccupied about her body and somatic complaints, defiance. However she doesn t really seem bipolar or schizophrenic, though she was Dx d bipolar. I don t think it looks psychiatric, it seems so odd and doesn t add up to any one Dx. Neurologists told parents the tumor had nothing to do wiht any of this, what do you think??
