Epillepsy or panic attack

This friend of has been facing this serious issue for past 4-5 years and we don't know what it is. Suddenly his heart starts pounding very fast,he starts sweating and his body starts shaking;sometimes complete body,sometimes just fingers. After this,he would suddenly become unconscious and remains in that state for some time,then he would awake once,he would look here and there and then he would go back to that stage again.after some time he would wake up again,bit confused but remains completely conscious this time. Also,sometimes these periods of unconsciousness remains for more than 15 mins.and during this period,if u slap him,u pour water on him,it doesn't matter.he doesn't respond. Recently,he has been facing memory loss issues also. He has to put alot pressure on his mind to remember thing that happened previous night or 4-5 hours before.

Often symptoms of anxiety disorder and a particular type of epilepsy and a condition called dissociation can overlap leading to confusion in diagnosis. At times they can coexist too. Hence, given the complexity of the issue and the nature of the problem, the person needs to be seen in person for a detailed evaluation, examination and to carry out some tests. These conditions are treatable and the key lies in arriving at the proper diagnosis. Regards
