Depression after breaking up with girlfriend


Q: For the past week I haven't been able to eat, sleep, feel happy, and I have had thoughts of suicide. I had an attack of some sort also. I couldn't breath, my chest was tight, and I was having hot flashes. It believe it is due to a recent serious break up. Should I see my doctor about depression or wait it out?
