Literally for no reason and being 30 with no less stress than normal, start getting freak anxiety attacks or do you think there is a real chance it could be something else? NO medical history of anxiety or mental illness in the family either..
My friend is going through this - she has now these heart racing crazy attacks out of no where and she went to the Dr today who instantly wanted to prescribe her 3 different types of anxiety meds..
The Dr did no type of blood work or tests to see if it "could be" something else at all... is this normal practice?

It happened to me when my thyroid got out of control. The anxiety meds actually made things worse for me. I would advise her to request some testing before taking the meds. Since it's "out of the blue" I would definitely suspect it might be caused by some sort of medical problem, such as a hormone imbalance. If she's recently had a baby, gained or lost weight, or had any other type of change I would be even more inclined to suspect a medical cause.
