So for the past 7 months I've been dealing with Labynithitis, anxiety, panic, depression, and depersonalization/derealization. I heard that a majority of all this was caused by the Labynithitis. I've had a eeg, ekg, cat scan, and countless lab work done and everything came back good. I saw an audiologist and she determined that it was labyrinthitis due to a little hearing loss in my left ear, and today I finally saw a physical therapist, he did the tests and he said that he's 100 percent positive that there is no permanent damage and I just need to re compensate from having it. Unfortunately today I have had a weird sense of depersonalization. I felt like I was going crazy, I was angry, nothing seemed real, I felt like I was going to just snap and end up in a straight jacket. Everyone including my therapist and doctor said that they think it's just anxiety, no depression, no bipolar, nothing but anxiety and dizziness from the uncompensated labyrinthitis. I'm confused on what to do from here. Does anyone else have almost constant depersonalization at times? I have ativan and valuim but they hurt the healing process... they haven't put me on an ssri yet for anxiety. I'm hoping that once I start doing my exercises that my anxiety will calm down. Anyone have any advice? Any good ssri meds for my anxiety? I tried lexapro and I couldn't sleep, eat, and I had major major headaches.
