Any ideas

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi, I'm a 21 male been on sertraline for about 2-3 years and gradually built up to 150 mg dosage daily,I experienced so Many worrying symptoms and when I recently went up to 150 mg some symptoms got worse so I thought maybe it could be my meds causing them so the past 2 weeks I went down to 50mg and then 25 and have now stopped for around 2 days,maybe a little under 2 days, anyways I haven't noticed any withdrawals or anything up until about 2 hours ago, I was on my games console when I suddenly had a very strange sensation. Best I can describe it is a wave that starts at the front of my head or side and spreads quickly to the other side or back and it's like a wave crashing or a pulse (not a heart beat pulse) but a pulse that starts somewhere and pulsates outwards quickly. It causes me to stop everything im doing and shut my eyes and hold my head momentarily. Its a horrible feeling it causes a strange short of dizziness/disoriented feeling that has been coming and going for last couple of hours that worsens when a wave/pulse hits. Is this something with ms? I've read about ms symptoms and I've had a few of them for years but never been bad enough to think hmm maybe this is serious. But these sort of brain waves are terrifying. Help? Ideas?

    Wow! I am surprised this is just now a problem for you.

    I have been on Zoloft for 11 years and if I miss even one day I am just a blob of bad from head to toe.

    So I think you are experiencing SSRI withdrawls and they SUUUCK.

    Besides the brain waves what other symptoms are worrying you?
