Anxiety and Stress Disorders
Anxiety and Hallucinations
I want to know if what I`m feeling is panic attack. I feel pain in my elbows and knee and also I feel that when I look in the mirror and look at my elbows and knees I think that my knees and elbows are changing that the bone is showing.
From the little you describe, I doubt that these are classic anxiety or panic attacks. However, I really don`t have enough information to guide or assist you very well. I strongly encourage you to see your primary care doctor as a place to start, and also visit a mental health professional, such as a psychologist or a psychiatrist to help you figure out what is going on.
