Been a long time anxiety sufferer but was soo much better the past 3.5 years or so. Recently at the start of this year I started to notice some strange feelings/newer symptoms and I have not been able to shake them.
Was on 20mg for first 1.5 year then GP told me to go to 40mg just cause so I did....was on that for the past year or while also taking small doses of Tramadol for a hernated disc....to be honest I had no anxiety, felt a panic come on and I would immediately brush it off.
In the fall of last year and early this year weaned myself off Tramadol completely . Reduced Citalopram dose from 40mg to 20mg...then a couple months later took a very expensive taxi ride to the ER.
Have had hundreds of EKGS, blood work, testing, etc....no CATScan though on the brain.
I went back up to 40 mg for a couple of months and started to fill confused at times and that really would through me off. Would have a hard time processing thoughts, words, etc at times I would also get really anxious.
Now I have full blown panic again to where each day is a struggle THIS SUCKS!! Had this for many years back in the day. Now I am taking 40 mgs again but worried that I will have something catastophic happen to me if I go back to 40 mg. This will be day 4 of taking 40 mg a day.....not sure why I am even on that high of a dose I am 6ft and 185lbs.
Your thoughts, advice and words are greatly appreciated!
