Ask Dr. Oz: Post Op #23

Posted:

Audience member Vivine inquires about panic attacks (episodes of intense fear or apprehension that is of sudden onset), and she asks how to prevent them. Dr. Oz states that when this happens, one’s body’s auto-pilot gets stuck into high gear, and the attacks causes can be many (from predisposed causes, to biological ones, or from phobias).

Dr. Oz asserts that medication can be prescribed to help, or beta blockers can be issued (if a heart problem is detected as the cause), but that these should be temporary solutions, and that the most important issue is to test to find out the reasons behind the attacks.

An audience member tells Dr. Oz that she often has severe facial pain, and she asks why this might be. Dr. Oz’s first assumption is that the pain might be from Trigeminal neuralgia (a neuropathic disorder of one or both of the trigeminal nerves, where episodes of intense pain can occur in the ear, eye, lips, nose, scalp, forehead, teeth, or jaw).

Dr. Oz suggests that supplements like amino acid Lysine, vitamin B, or any that help nerve function might help the pain. However, the condition can often be more serious than what ease these supplements might provide. There are many options, from medication to surgery, and Dr. Oz recommends the person afflicted find a good doctor.

Dr Oz suggests to the audience member to research the disorder, and tells her to find the Dr.’s that are writing papers and articles about this disorder, as they might be the best experts to learn from and receive treatment suggestions from.
