Suggest treatment for anxiety attacks

Hi there, my dad has chronic and sometimes intense (especially in the last 2 weeks). He also has hyper acidity and is on low dosage of medication for high BP. At the moment, he is also on norflox for hyper acidity but the trouble with breathing has worsened, so much that he had to be put on trika to even get some sleep. He's always shown traces of anxiety in several instances. Can you please suggest whom should we consult?

Psychologist 's  Response
Dear
Welcome to HCM
We understand your concerns

I went through your details. I suggest you not to worry much. For the time being, the best choice is to consult your own physician. Let him guide you through the correct treatment process and which specialist you should consult. From the given symptoms, paranoia can be diagnosed. But that is not all. These symptoms also could manifest if you are stressed, hugely disappointed or obsessing these thoughts. Therefore differential diagnosis is required which can only be provided by a trained psychologist / psychiatrist. Researches proves that medicines alone cannot cure anxiety disorder. Along with medicine you should practice psychotherapy techniques to streamline your life style and meditation and yoga techniques to calm your mind, body, streamline your metabolism and thinking style. Please consult a psychologist.

If you still need my help, please describe the whole problem in detail and post a direct question to me. I shall definitely help you with psychotherapy techniques to over come your problems.

Hope this answers your query. Available for further clarifications.
Good luck.
