I have had anxiety and depression for some time and been off work. Recently the depression has got worse. I am not currently on an anti-depressant but am about to start escitalopram. A big problem is that I am feeling so physically unwell, a sick nauseous feeling, feeling a bit hot, cloudy headed and generally weak and unwell. I am also getting some bowel symptoms. All these are not good as when I do start an ad that will have effects on top of how rubbish I am feeling anyway. My GP has just arranged some blood tests but I wonder is it relatively common to feel this way with bad depression/anxiety? It is horrible. I already wake up with pounding heart and dread at the day ahead (and last night could hardly sleep due to worrying about the future, my health, medication side effects and a conviction that I would never get better - not a good sate of mind but one I am finding impossible to get out of at the moment).
