Our expert says:
You are obviously very, very tense and stressed and the dr is correct that your physical symptoms are being caused by the panic attacks (a psychological cause). I can only suggest that you try to get some assistance from a clinical psychologist (if you do not have a medical aid or no funds, then try to contact your nearest state hospital and ask them if they have anyone who can give you some psychotherapy). It is vital that you are taught how to deal with these attacks and how to handle stress in a more positive way, so that you do not self-destruct. If at all possible please try to get to see a clinical psychologist ASAP. If you live in the Gauteng area there is the Tara Hospital (phone (011) 783-2010, which should not be too expensive to consult.
Once you have your psychological problems under control we can look at what you should be eating.
