what is going on with my mom ? HELP?
she gets these things where all of a sudden she's screaming for help , her chest is hurting , she has heart palpitations , she says its like terror . they go away after certain times sometimes it's a couple minutes other times its up to a hour before she calms down. we've talked to doctors asking about panic or anexiety attacks or something to do with her heart but no one is sure what they are ? has anyone had anything similar or know what this sounds like its very scary!!

The symptoms are so general they could be caused by a variety of different things. It might be a process of elimination to figure this out. The first step is getting a comprehensive battery of blood tests that include thyroid function. Her symptoms sometimes occur in people that have a thyroid problem. If she decides to pursue a blood test, its best to have the blood test scheduled at least a few days ahead of a doctor office visit to discuss the test results.

she needs to see a doctor so they can do tests, so they know if there is something wrong with her heart.
