Anxiety and Panic Attacks - Follow up

Monday, 22 February 2010

Last week we had a massive reaction to our piece on panic attacks and anxiety. As usual we can never answer all texts, phone calls and queries, but since there was such a massive response we will address the most commonly asked questions with Prof Paul Fearon.

Prof Paul Fearon - Leading psychiatrist, St. Patrick's University Hospital

We will be asking Prof. Fearon to answer commonly themed questions that we received from our viewers last week.

Common Problems:

. Phobias
. Can pregnancy, PMS and menopause cause panic attacks (hormonal)
. Why would I get a panic attack when I'm not particularly anxious about anything?
. Stressful Situations
. Thyroid Problems
