These attacks are getting worse I did not start out with all these but as they get worse the pain gets worse. This is what happens to me when and attack comes on:
Hands drawing
Muscle weakness in arms and legs
Burning on the inside of my body
Panic feeling
Pale clammy skin

After the spell is over I have a headache and I am completely exhausted.

  • It is hard to determine which disease or state you suffer from. It would be helpful if you could give us some tests results and tell something more about current condition. I'd like to know when your problem have started, how long it takes to feel relief, do you link the attack with anything (ex. food, activity, drugs)?

  • Have you ever had a 24 hr EEG to see if you might be having partial complex seizures? I was misdiagnosed for 20 years as having panic attacks & had your same symptoms. An epileptologist finally diagnosed the problem & now take Keppra XR & I have had no further "panic attacks". I hope you find answers to your health issues. Sometimes wondering what is going on & not having answers can be worse than the diagnosis. When you receive the right diagnosis, you can finally receive proper treatment.
