Hallo Doc

Ek kry verskriklike angsaanvalle verval as ek op paaie moet ry wat hoog is. Is daar pille wat werk om my rustig te maak wat ek oor die toonbank kan kry, as ek die passasier is en nie self bestuur nie?

YOu seem to be describing feeling seriously anxious specifically when you need to drive on the roads, rather than broader, generalized anxiety not related to this particular stressor ?
This sort of situation usually responds very well indeed to expert psychological treatment in not many sessions of Cognitive-Behaviour Therapy ( CBT ). There are NO useful drugs you an get over the counter ( and the far too many sedatives you can buy over the counter could be dangerous by seriously interfering with your ability to drive safely. )
There are some medications a psychiatrist might use, including sedatives ( but those have the same problem with driving, causing impairment like drinking alcohol ) or drugs also used to treat depression, which might be safer but take a bit longer to show their benefits.

My moeder is op die 30 Jan in die hospitaal opgeneem in buite pasiente agv maagpyn en naarheid,
In die Hospitaal het haar gedrag skielik verander, na ''n smeking ek moet haar help, kon nie asem kry, pyn tussen die blaaie , naar ongelooflik maagpyn, bewe van kakebeen en hande, en gesmeek sy moet dood gaan. Ek was onsteld want volgens my het sy net maagpyn ondergaan en is ook gedianoseer vir spastiese kolon met baie winde. Hierdie simptome het sy 3 keer gekry in ''n tyd van 3 ure. Die suster het my gese sy kry angsaanvalle en ek was baie onsteld. Moet se my broer is in die selfde hospitaal oorlede 2004. Is dit moontlik. en voel hulle maar so afgerem na die aanvalle , sy is 87 Dankie Rhona
