> Well, here's another tidbit of info. I have some trouble with alcohol (not REAL bad-but it is too much and I think I would be better off not drinking at all). I have noticed that panic feelings are more likely when you are coming down from a beer buzz (i.e.), or if you really overindulged and are hungover the next day and then you EAT for the first time! An hour of two later I just get so amped out I can hardly stand it. I do know that seizure activity is more likely after an alcohol withdrawal-it is like abruptly taking Valium or some other Benzo. Maybe... the same mechanisms that could set a seizure off could also set off panic-even though a panic attack isn't recorded on an EEG like a classical seizure....

Hi Mitch.

I know sod-all about PD but I have a binge-drinking friend who only *ever* has panic-attacks when the bingeing stops. I've read a few pieces connecting seizures (alcohol-induced in this case?) & PD.

Could be something 2 it...
