Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your question...

You seem to be suffering from a psychiatric disorder called "Panic disorder with Agoraphobia". I understand that this has been affecting your day-to-day and socio-occupational functioning very badly. You definitely need professional help to overcome this problem. There is effective treatment available in the form of medication and psychotherapy and so, you don't need to keep suffering in silence. Please consult a psychiatrist for further evaluation and management.

Wish you all the best.
