Hi I'm new to these forums, but I have been diagnosed with General Anxiety disorder. I have always been an anxious person since I was 10. And I've been up and down and always get over it. I had my last episode 4 years ago and I went onto citalopram 20 mg and within a mo th I was fine again then in the last couple of weeks I suddenly started getting anxious again and it always affects my sleep. I went to the dr and she upped my citalopram to 30 mg I've been taking this for 2 weeks now and after day 5 I felt a lot better and slept again. Now I'm pre menstrual and I've started getting really anxious and haven't slept a lot in the last two nights!! I get so obsessed with not sleeping that it makes me more anxious, I am constantly thinking what if I don't sleep again tonight and then again the next night and what if I end up mad with no sleep so exhausting and I know why I can't sleep is because I'm worrying about it but how do you stop!! I get the sick feeling in my tummy by tea time and hot arms like a burning sensation then in bed I lay there with aching arms legs going into cramps it's horrible! All I need is sleep. My anxiety has been brought on by money worries and stress and guilty for getting into debt so also feel lots of guilt on my husband and family who are helping me out. Any one else suffered with this ??
