      Dear Elaine, my symptons are the usual, tommy trouble, ie loose stools, not too bad this time, shaking, hot & cold, appetite nil, and what is worse for me is restless and anxious, but saying that after 18 days seems lighter, I started to eat, forcing myself, but not as bad as a week ago. Everyone is different, because I have it, you could be different. No rules.

      Don't loose heart, I can assure you, patience, this will pass. If you are worried, try not to, (difficult). If is stressing you go to your Dr. They help.

      try to have a good day, if not tomorrow will

      All the best xxx

      Thanks Sue for your reply, it's beeing easier a "bit" today. I noticed. But the mornings till late afternoon still bad. I should know this is my third recurrence, the previous one was murder, this time I think I got it early, as I am familiar with the starting symptoms.

      Tanks again x

    I feel so sorry for you if you are restless(akathesia). I have that often. I am coming off of Paxil and possibly staying on Prozac I started. I'm scared this anxiety and restless feeling will stay. I have horrible nausea also.
