thank you for giving us confidence. I am a neurosurgeon and I will do my best to help you going out of this serious discomfort.
Please give me first some more information especially describe the attacks you are experiencing, are they on a daily basis? do you feel that the problem is changing location? are the attacks so abrupt or they give first an alarm?

Ok can you do a 24 h registration of EEG. this is t discover if you have any kind of epilepsy or not. After that if we exclude epilepsy we will consider GAD generalized anxiety disorder.
if you dont want to do the EEG I proposed sart a treatment with Escitalopram 10 mg daily , waiting for results
