Despite this increase, facilities available to help you when you are struck down, still remains the same as it has been for years.The doctor is normally the first port of call and this normally involves being put on medication and a referral to a specialist. However, these specialists are so over stretched that people have to suffer in silence for many months before they are seen by anyone.

If the government was to introduce a more robust system where sufferers of panic attacks are seen more quicker, before their symptoms get worse, then they would save a lot of money.”
