I am new here but have been told I have severe panic disorder and agoraphobic. I thought I was handling it alright until last Monday when a grandson fainted at school. I was at my Doctor's office and rushed to hospital. He was sent home. Fainted again Wednesday-daughter said we were going to a hospital 20 miles away but after getting started we went 2 1/2 hours away. No clothes, toothbrush, NOTHING. Started home Friday we were eating at restaurant. Grandson had headache had to go to bathroom-fainted 15' from me. Took to a local hospital. I found no parking space, thought I would pass out. Daughter called and said we were taking him back to larger hospital. He passed out in bathroom while waiting to be admitted. Now I am having weakness, pain, confusion, so am scared. What is wrong with me???????? What do I do?

Hi Gator and welcome to WebMD,

I encourage you to start your own discussion so Dr. Farrell can find and respond to your situation.

To do that, hold your cursor over the orange Post Now button on the upper right and choose 'Discussion' from the drop down menu which appears. Fill in the subject line and body of the message (you can ignore the poll part if you wish) and Submit.

I hope your grandson is okay, that they find answers re his condition soon. (((hugs)))

Hi Hopespain,

This is something that you really need to discuss with your doctor. S/he knows your medical history and what conditions are involved.
