I suffered 2 brain haemorrages due to an aneurysm which was subsequently sucessfully clipped with no side effects. 8 months later I suffered what was believed to be a panic attack, symptoms were tingling down arms and legs, difficult breathing, general feelings of extreme fear that I was dying - I collapsed on reaching hospital. (neurological causes and epilepsy were ruled out). I had several subsequent attacks which began to dissipate over a period of about a year. A doctor diagnosed me with panic disorder due directly due to the trauma of the aneurysm. Although I could understand the reasons for having this problem I guess I wasnt really convinced, as I am a very objective and logical person and couldnt really associate myself with such a disorder. Three and a half years after the surgery I had an angiography which showed that all was well - I was ecstatic! A month later I was driving and felt a sort of heart flutter, immediately I felt like I was passing out from the neck up and had to pull over. A psychiatrist and a doctor both exclamed, hmm that dosent sound like panic. Needless to say the following day I had lots of heart related symptoms which were investigated with nothing significant found. Since then I have suffered continual panic attacks 2 months in total (If thats what they are), the doc has now prescribed me with zispin (only 8 days in so feel like a total zombie). I have had one episode while on these drugs but am hoping this will do the trick. I am also waiting on the results of a 24 hr urine test for excess adrenalin. Im still not 100% convinced its panic, have you any ideas or advice please???
