Psychiatrist 's  Response
welcome to HCM!

I have read your question and it says that you have constant severe anxiety symptoms, almost similar to panic attacks for some days now.

you have not mentioned if you even underwent treatment for your anxiety?

If not, then it is the result of untreated anxiety disorder which has now flared up. I can say from my clinical experience that with medicine these will become much better and finally stop, but you should continue the treatment for some time after that.

When I have such a patients, I usually find good response with paroxetine/ vanlafaxine , along with etizolam. For sleep, as it is usually disturbed, I prefer zolpidem.

with this combination, there is improvement in few days only, and it continues till patients is almost completely at ease.
I prefer to increase the medicine slowly, seeing the response.

So, please meet a psychiatrist, as this is completely manageable.

Hope the reply is useful for you
