Our expert says:
One does not have to feel anxious to get panic attacks. The fact that it gets better if you breathe in to a paper bag or hold your breath may show that you are maybe subconsciously hyperventilating. Ask your GP to put you on a months trial of Fluoxetine 20 mg once a day, which should not cause weight gain, and see if this makes a difference. Also take Vit B complex and magnesium supplements daily.
