Your post is in the Anything Goes folder, so, it's not off topic.

And yes, I have suffered for years from panic attacks. I eventually came across this book, "PSYCHOnutrition: how to control your moods with foods" by William Vayda.

The section on LIAS, ie, Lactate Induced Anxiety Syndrome, was very helpful for me, and it is bad-diet related. Here is a quote from the book;

"Joanna's impaired liver was not able to perform some of the key steps in the biochemical chain which breaks down carbohydrates into glucose. She produced instead, abnormal amounts of a form of lactic acid called lactate. This natural chemical is a known panico-genic, which means it is capable of causing anxiety, or panic, in susceptible individuals."

HOWEVER! I'm not a Doctor, at all, and this is simply an idea for you to consider. I'm with the other posters, go and see a Medical Professional ASAP. And all the best to you and your sister.

Cheers, Mike.
