How to control panic attacks forever.Please mention diet which helps. Is there any sos medicine to stop it immediately.

Get treatment: There is no special diet to prevent panic attacks. It helps to treat the cause of panic attacks; depression, anxiety disorder or other medical issues like thyroid problems. So first order of business is to get evaluated and rule out obvious causes. Cognitive behavior therapy has shown to work effectively.

Problem: This is a big problem in my practice also. When i write an rx for pain medication and use those open end directions then patients tend think that they must take as directed on the bottle.

If you do not need to take the pain medication, take as needed. ...Read more

See PCP or Dr. soon: If your dry could and painful ribs aren't resolved with cough syrup, it's time to see your pcp to find out what is going on. Your sore ribs are probably from coughing so much, but you need to see whether it's an upper respiratory infection, or something more severe needing a chest xray. Your pcp can examine you more closely to determine the cause, and help with the pain. ...Read more

They may look like pink golf balls, but are more like a head of cauliflower with crypts that can trap bits of food, debris and bacteria. On occasion, calcifications ("tartar" like on teeth) or infections can develop in these crypts. All infections smell bad. Gargling with salt water or listerine may help, but sometimes you need to see a doc. ...Read more
