Has anyone ever heard of an association between Sudden drop in Blood Pressure and extreme panic attack while on dialysis?
My mother experiences extreme panic attacks before dialysis and sometimes during. She has been in the hospital for the past 5 months and has run the gamit of states of confusion and extreme panic attacks to such an extent she had to be moved to a psych ward. She is aware of when it is going to happen. They have thrown many meds at her, making it simply a mess. My Dad just noticed yesterday however, that while at dialysis, the tech took her BP which had a sudden drop at which time my mother started expressing that she felt the anxiety/panic attack coming on. So I have started to do some research on the possible relationship. (I do know that hypotension is a common side effect of dialysis). Thanks!
