Am I suffering form panic attacks?
Q: I am working as a personal secretary in Mumbai in a private firm since the last 20 years. My age is 45. Since the last 3/4 years I have a problem i.e. whenever I travel by local train and if there is heavy rush, I get scared of the rush. I get a feeling that I wont be able to get out of this train. Sometimes I used to get down from the train. Also when there is a big rush in a room or a similar situation such as closed lift. Last month I could not open the toilet lock and I got scared that I may die there itself. Kindly give me your valuable advice.
