Feeling so ill

Posted , 4 users are following.

Day 15 on citalopram and  just don't know when these symptoms are going to leave me if there are. I have been very anxious about my symptoms I have been expercing and have convinced my self that I am dying of some dreadful illness . With going back and forth to my doctors I am feeling worse each day. My doctors have said its to do my anxiety. I have had very bad shooting pains in my chest which have woke me the last 2 nights.. Feeling like a zombie . I feel as tho I have constant heart burn. It's such a very horrible feeling to have . I feel on my own. I have 3 chrildren and feel so my symptoms at the moment. Can anyone relate to these feeling and symptoms. Xx

    I can relate to everything you are saying! I had my last son 2 years ago and that is when my symptoms started. I could not understand why I felt like I had a weight on my chest out of breath and always felt out of it. Anxiety attacks take a lot out you. I have them frequently and when I do it sometimes takes days to some what feel normal. But really I have not felt my normal self since I have my son 2 years ago. It is depressing to always feel this way. I feel like it takes time out of my life that I could be spending with my family. I wish you the best. Maybe one days soon we will get everything under control. I have had every test done that my Dr could think of. All blood work and MRI came back normal. Just stay strong and try to keep yourself busy. I have noticed as long as I am out and about doing house work or yard work I feel better and don't have as many attacks. There was a time I went to my Dr crying because I just could not understand what was going on with my body. I was convinced I was dieing of cancer or something. But they have me xanax and it seems to help. Hope I didn't confuse you with my thoughts all over the place smilestay strong! Why don't you see if they will give you xanax. I am on the lowest dosage which is 0.25mg. It couldn't hurt to try it to see. One more thing with anxiety it will,make you feel like you are having a heart attack.
