    A whole array of symptoms - aches and pains, headaches, feeling cold, feeling hot, nausea, upset tum, panicky, trembling, acid reflux..................................

    Am on fluoxetine and omeprazole (for acid reflux) at the moment, was also on propanalol but gp stopped those as I have had to start taking meds for high bp. 

    How about you Lupingirl?

    My depression started over 30 years ago and the anxiety has been on and off for years now.  Am doing CBT at the moment, its brought up a lot of things which I didnt even know were there in my memories so is very hard but Im hoping it will be worth it in the end.
