Ask Dr. Denise Lamothe Q&A's
Name: Madeline

Have been overweight most of my life..hypo..no Matter what I do. I am 53 and my last period was Sept 05. I just started with severe symptoms that have mee scared. Panic attacks, heart palp and in 4 weeks I lost 14 lbs. Now I need to loose a lot more, but why the weight loss all of a sudden, after years of trying. By the way, most of my weight is in the stomach.

Madeline -- I would suggest you first have a complete physical and then meet with a therapist to find out why you are afraid and what the panic attacks are about. Weight gain in the tummy could mean many things and you need to get checked out medically anf then psychologically. Hope this helps! Dr. Denise

Be well,
