It all started when I was sent home from work last week with chicken pox ( I'm a teaching assistant ) since then I've had awful anxiety every day, anybody who knows me, knows I'm always happy and cheerful. I've got an awful feeling I'm going to die. I'm convinced the headaches and shooting pains in my head are signs of a tumour or bleed on the brain. I've been to see the doctor who prescribed 50mg sertraline and 10mg propanol and is referring me for Cognitive Behavioural Therapy. I don't drink or smoke but the way I feel right now I could smoke 20 cigs and have a good drink! I've had a couple of drinks with it being Christmas and the feeling started to subside. I just need to know how long it's going to take for the medication to start working? I really can't cope with this feeling anymore.
