I am new to the blog, I get several panic attacks lasting 10-15 minutes in the evenings, day time I am fine. I also note the my attacks are not connected to going to toilet.
I had a panic attack out of the blue one late night, perspiration, flush, eyes unable to focus, dizzy feeling, did not know what today. since it was late night no doctors were available, I went to a hospital and the resident MRO check and found BP and pulse OK. I really got scared. Stomach problems started next day, and whenever I ate anything I used to get these attacks. I could just eat two spoons of rice before I felt full and uncomfortable. I was first diagnosed and treated for amebiosis, then colitis before a third doctor said it was IBS. By then one month of suffering had passed and I was skinny and a mental wreck. I also took some anti-depressant and it took me 6 months to get back on track.
That was 4 years ago. The same symptoms have started now again. I was given a strong mebeverine (anti spasmodic) which did not suit me and felt giddy, breathless and perspired one full day thinking I will die. I stopped it and took a lower strength tab, but it still gives me problems.
Would somebody with similar problems communicate.
