Out of the blue around 7 weeks ago, I woke up in the middle of the night by what can only be described as a massive panic attack, totally disoriented and head felt numb, shaking, adrenaline rushing through me, vomiting and severe diarrhoea. Fast forward a few days and I was having multiple panic attacks a day, feeling detached and in a dream like state and shaking. My mind constantly racing with thoughts that don't even feel like my own. After a few weeks of this I eventually went to doctors and she's told me it's severe health anxiety and prescribed me Fluoxitine and diazapam. I'm currently on day 12 and the side effects are absolutely debilitating. I wake up and before I open my eyes the shaking and Nausea kick in. I am a mum and partner and hate my family seeing me like this. I fear every single moment and on the verge of panic constantly. I have a feeling that I'm detached and constantly shaking and want to just sleep, but when I try, my mind races and I become agitated and pace the floor feeling/being sick or running to toilet with nerves. I feel like all my senses are heightened, everything seems loud/bright.... argggg... its unbearable. i have no appetite and have lost 8lbs already. When will these symptoms go? Will I get better? should I keep taking the fluoxitine?
