My mom (93) has what I think are panic or anxiety attacks. What can I do?
When she gets up in the morning , she cries and gets very short of breath. So much so that it's like she is gasping for air. Sometimes this lasts about 45 minutes. Then when I can get her to finally calm down, she is fine like nothing happened. This is driving me crazy because she does this about 4 times a day. Sometimes I feel like calling the paramedics, but then she calms down. I think she needs an anti-anxiety medication. I would like to take her to her doctor's office but she refuses to go. Says she is fine. Does anyone know of a doctor who makes house calls in the Long Island, NY area.
