Mines a tricky one cause i've been suffering vertigo and balance issues for 15 months which has caused anxiety (I assume) Was fobbed off by GP for months who tried a variety of pills including Propranolol, anti sickness pills, and anti psychotics! which all made me feel worse. Saw a lovely doc early October who put me on Citalopram 20mg for the anxiety and Betahistine 16mg 3 times a day for the balance problem. Finally got referred to ENT 2 weeks ago where they found i'd lost some hearing in my right ear. I had a brain/ear MRI last week. I started to perk up a bit during week 4-5 on the Citalopram, but at week 9 I feel awful again, terrible hot sweats, panicky feeling, not wanting to go out etc. The ENT appt freaked me out as wasn't expecting a brain scan so that really hasn't helped matters, but thought I wouldn't be as anxious now! I know they can take time to settle for everyone but how long is too long? Do I need more? I don't want too much! Going back to GP this afternoon but wanted some experience stories first if possible as i'm freaking out about going there already! Lol
