Panic attacks, stressful situations in crowded place. Is it adrenal fatigue?

Hi, I m having panic attacks, and it is getting worse. I get it usually at the 2nd half of the day. I also have hard times facing stressful situations, like speaking in front of the crowd, or before an exam. Others seems relaxed, and they are, but I am so stressed, that I cannot even think well. And also those panic attacks, I do not now, how to stop them. And i do not want to get calm tablets. I think I might have an adrenal fatigue . What do you think? I would like to get out of this circle, because it is very very bad, I cannot even have a minute of relaxing, it is aways on my mind. Thanks you! Julia (22)

Hi Julia,

Thanks for writing in.

Please try the following measures:
1. Exercise 30-45 minutes a day five days a week is a must. Exercise releases endorphins which help
you feel good.
2. Sign up for yoga / relaxation classes. I feel this will definitely help you as yoga helps to destress.
3. If the above measures don't work get a couple of blood tests like Hemoglobin, thyroid function test, blood sugars , Vitamin B12 levels checked. Sometimes abnormalitites in the above mentioned tests can present with symptoms similiar to what you are experiencing now.

Hope this helps.
