Re: Panic attacks post stroke
I too had these attacks they started shortly after my stroke last December. My wife took me out to a restaurant for dinner. All the confusion noise and movements going on around me caused such a attack. Loudsound especially bothered me as it sounded distorted and made my head hurt. These panic attacks got less and less in intensity and eventually went away completely. I never saw a therapist just my MD. I am now working and driving with no problems. People I work with tell me that if I hadn't told them about my stroke they could not tell I even had one. Things get better don't worry I had a brain stem stroke and damaged much of my small brain stem. All I can say is it gets MUCH BETTER just keep trying and challenge your brain almost to the breaking point each and every day and you will grow in strength.
