Panic attacks - clarification
Hi doc,
Its kami again. Just to clarify, BP runs in our family. My Dad actually collapsed in the streets and died, and a good samaritan had to call me, and since, though my BP was diagnosed later, I've had this fear that I might also collapse on my own!!! how can I overcome this fear coz I have a feeling that it could be the cause of the rising BP? Also, someone suggested I check on my thyroid function, what are the symptoms of and over/undereactive thyroid?
