Can you have severe panic atacks from gastrointestinal problems like candida since the most of serotonin is produced in the guts, or its just a myth?

Misperception

Candida
the misperception of any symptom, including GI, may trigger a panic attack. It is not a myth that serotonin is in your gut; but this does not mean necessarily that a cause-effect is established in a particular case

Dr. Kevin Passer answered:

Could depression and anxiety which are linked to low serotonin levels be related to low adrenaline levels?

Not really

Serotonin
There are many things which cause varying levels of hormones and what are called- Neurotransmitters. There is really no way to measure Neurotransmitter levels directly, plus, different parts of the brain and body have different levels. Adrenalin levels constantly change. One can measure levels of certain metabolites or byproducts in urine, but I wonder why you asked the question as you did?
