User Profile sister is 13 years old .she has been suffering from severe chest pain for 2-3 weeks and severe headache from last week. Sometimes she stops breathing for a long time. Sometimes she doesn't recognize family members but she gets back to normal within few minutes and don't remember anything. Doctors have given her several tests but none of them can figure out what exactly is going on with her. Some of them are saying that this is happening due to excessive pressure for studies and she should be at rest. Well she's been at rest for 3 weeks now but her condition is getting worse. Can you please help me with some information about what's going on with my sister?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These symptoms are consistent with anxiety disorder.
It would be better that you consult psychiatrist to evaluate her.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
