Panic disorder: , generalized anxiety disorder, or social anxiety disorder. These are the situations in which panic attacks or anxiety attacks are most likely to occur. Ask your boyfriend to see a psychiatrist and a psychologist for both medicinal and psychological treatment. He should see his family doctor first to have a physical cause of his symptoms ruled out. Best wishes for a happy and blessed holiday season.
