The past week my FIL (88) has had numerous panic attacks at least 5 on Sunday ending up in the hospital (being discharged after no cardiac arrest or stroke etc). The attacks seem to stem from us trying to move him from walker or wheelchair to the car (we went to church Sunday & this started). It appears he is losing feeling & goes into a full on attack - almost seizure like shaking. My husband insists we take him from nursing home a couple times week as he believes his dad is so incredibly bored from being there - has only been there 1 month. FIL won't socialize with others - never has done this - isn't going to play bingo etc. FIL does enjoy his outings & hubby wants to give him a good quality of life as long as we can. Do prescribed drugs help with these attacks? We are very new to this diagnosis & trying to figure our way thru it all.
