I havent. My GP diagnosed my first panic attack about 12-13 years ago. Followed up with therapy and he seconded the opinion. I'm sure if I indicated I wanted tests he'd refer me for them......

Hi I see a neuro. A neurologist looks for brain abnormalties, pheriphial nerve problems, spinal cord problems and many other dieseases that are caused by the central nervous center and brain. They do neuropsyhc testing, cognitive and movement disorders etc. I do have some abnormalties {siezure disorder}, which is why I see a neuro, but he also dx my anxiety. I hope this helps you out some.

I never saw a neuro either. I think my symptoms were so obviously PD that the physician didn't feel the need to look further.
