Hello everyone. My mother has been suffering panic attacks for the last week and a half - two days ago, she went to visit her primary care but won't be able to see a specialized doctor until a month later.
Unfortunately, her condition has been getting worse. She has slept an average of 3 hours for the last week as she often cannot rest well; usually she wakes up drenched in her own sweat and her heart racing. She's been choking very easily on simple foods, and she says that her throat feels like it's closing in occasionally. She says that falling asleep won't give her comfort because she feels like she's dying.
She's been taking chamomile tea to calm her nerves and has been spending some extra time outside or near open windows to alleviate things and attempt deep breathing exercises, but these have only been minially helpful.
Would anyone be able to help me, at all? I've been trying to extensively research the best doctors in the New York area, and I'd appreciate any recommendations for doctors. What are the typical medications doctors prescribe for cases such as my mom's? Until we are able to see a doctor for her, is there anything we can do to help her condition?
Thanks so much, I sincerely appreciate any help.
