I will try to make this short. I have been on Citalopram 10 mg ever sense April of this year and I have been doing great. I was doing so great that I decided to start working out just two weeks ago and felt great doing it. But something happened, I decided to take a day off from working out and when I woke up the next day my whole upper body, well my arms, hands, and face where all tingly, burning, and numb feeling and really tense. So I figured I injured myself working out to hard but these sensation brought on more anxiety and racing thought and nothing seemed to help. So I decided to go to the emergency room and get checked out. He didn't even really look me over that well and told me it was Paresthesia and anxiety and told me to take over the counter medication for the pain and that it should get better in three days. Yeah right, three day went by and the numbing, tingling, and burning sensations just about completely went away but I was still getting a lot of tension and my back in between my neck and ribs were very sore. And with the tension it always makes me think that it is anxiety, so it made my anxiety worse as well, which started up unwanted thoughts and for some reason my anxiety medication was not helping. So I went to another walk in care clinic and at least this doctor checked me over and said that it was mostly likely a muscle strain-sprain and that my nerves and movement seemed fine. What I am trying to get at is I was feeling great before this injury and all my medications where working well for me, I just don't understand why they are not now. Is it caused by the injury and will I get better once I heal and will my medication start working for me again. And has anyone else experienced anything like this. I would greatly appreciate any and all advice I could possibly get. Feel like giving up!! 😢
