feel like i'm going mad

Posted , 4 users are following.

Anxiety has been really bad this last month but especially the last week. I feel so emotional and will just cry at anything, I am freaking out as usual with my chest pains and relating it to heart issues. i've had all the other usual symptoms too of headaches, dizzyness, chest pain and arm pain, chest palpitations, blurred vision, but i just feel like i'm going a bit mad from it all, things really work me up and i sit here worrying about everything and theres a part of me that just doesnt know what to do with myself...i dont know whether to cry, scream, get up and walk anywhere. i just feel like i need to release something, i look back on what i'm writing like now and think people will think i'm crazy sad i've so had enough of anxiety

      I've been on sert for 23 days now 50mg and the first week or so u will feel like how your describing Hun, it gets worse before it gets better, it takes 4-12 to feel the benefits but the side effects should ease by week 2 and be gone by week 4, if not then u might need yo up your dose x

    If you keep taking all that medication it will stop but that means your lymphatic system has stopped too, then you will start retaining fluid and have more health problems, you have to find the underlying problem doctors call everything they cant figure out anxiety

      Hi Jimmy

      Not brilliant but better. Haven't felt so out of control of things. My appointment with my go got cancelled so I'm due to go again in just over a week. Just need a bit of reassurance I think. Tried to start doing a bit of physical activity/exercise but my heart rate just goes sky high and makes me panic. Really hope things improve soon as it's a struggle to cope sometimes

      Certainly sounds like something that would help. I'm seeing a different doctor than normal when I go so I can get a second opinion and hopefully be able to progress. It just feels like something isn't quite right
