    Hi, yes I was like that every morning. I'd wake up feeling really panicky then feel like I needed to be sick. Once I was sick I was fine. My gp told me this was normal for people who suffer with anxiety and panic attacks. He said panic effects you in loads of diffrent ways. I started taking clitrapram an once all the side effects whent away. Iv been fine. Hope you start to feel better soon. X

      Glad this helped you. It helped me just to see that I wasn't the only one having these things go on. Yer I had really bad headache when I 1st started. And I had nausus when I 1st started them I was on 10mg Which didn't help with the all ready beeing sick. It took about 7 or 8 weeks for the headache to go. I'm now on 20mg an on my 4th month. The panic an anxiety are becoming less an less by the day and I'm starting to feel abit more like me. I hope this helps you. Xx

      I no it's so horrible I keep getting headaches recently and feel really off just feel like I'm in a bubble and I keep getting this cold feeling in my head and numbness in my body do you think this is a side effect from citalopram so scared I have a brain tumor

      Iv had all that. I think it's partly to do with clitrapram an partly anxiety. That cold feeling is the most scariest thing ever. Have you tryied an type of counceling I wasn't really into all that an thought no way that would help. My gp told me about cognitive behaviour. I got that bad an fed up with the way I felt I thought I would give anything ago. And it was the best thing I ever did. It really worked for me. Now I'm not convinced every pain is cancer or a heart attack. Xx

      Aww don't worry. If I can help one person feel better it make me feel that goin through the anxity was worth it. (Strange way of thinking I know). And a lot of people on this cite have helped me. It also helps me talkin to other people in the same situation. That buble feeling will go eventually. Haha yes I got the tingling in my head in my feet and in my hands. This is all the anxiey. I find getting in a nice hot bath with no one interrupting me really helps me relax or go an lay down and watch a easy to watch film. Xx

      I sure do. I promise this will get better. Everythin you are saying is to do with anxiey. It's so hard to exept cos u can't belive that all this can be caused by anxiety also mabe the tablets. If you feel really unsure go an see ur gp again. Don't worry about it. God I was at the docs by the min when i stRted. An they were really good with me. You may need to change ur tablets or go on a higher. Or you might just feel better for the doctor just to say yes what ur having is normal. That's what I needed. I promise this will get better it feels like it won't but it will. Xx
