Better to consult a psychiatrist and in general medicine department or viseversa to find out wether it is due to a medical problem like seizures or a psychiatric problem.try to confirm the diagnosis and go for better treatment accordingly
Welcome to Practo.
The symptoms that you have described here are strongly suggestive of psychiatric condition. Apparently, the clinical picture is of mixed symptoms of depression, anxiety and Psychotic features(?). We need to consider if there is recent use of any drug, cannabis(weed), etc. There is a need to evaluated in detail and examine for further management and treatment.
I would strongly advice you to show him to a Psychiatrist soon. Presence of suicidal thoughts is serious and an indication for an urgent hospital admission.
A timely consultation and treatment can prevent complications. Regards, Dr Pankaj Borade
This may be panic attacks which sometimes mimic unusual behaviour, psychological tests needs to be conducted to find out any hidden psychological issues, counselling and medications will help him recover completely but first we need to diagnose the problem accurately
