My daughter is 15, she has had a lot of health issues since she was 6. She is under the care of gosh for gut problems and for multiple food allergies. This has left her with some psychological problems which she receives counseling for. The new thing of late is she has been put on 20mg of amitriptyline, to help with pain and depression. But she has been experiencing regular and worsening panic attack symptoms, ie tight chest; sweats; hard to breath; I was wondering if it's the medication or her mental health worsening.

With my first severe panic attack I couldn't breathe, was afraid to go outside, felt like puking, lost all my energy as soon as I got close to a door, (that took me 2 months to come out of), just about fainted and had a high heart rate. I was in the hospital for 5 hours.

I suddenly feel chest pains, short of breath, numbness in my right arm like someone is pocking me with needles, hot flashes, feel helpless and I will cry because of the pain.
