for months. Numerous trips to the ER, test after test after test, and everything came back fine. BUT this post is here to offer a bit of hope! I haven't been on the forums in a while, which is a good sign of how well I've been doing- I used to be on twenty times a day to reassure myself that I was not alone in my symptoms. I was put on an antidepressant that made things 100x worse. FINALLY I went to see a psychiatrist who put me on a new med. I was skeptical at first because googling this medication sent me to sites about how horrible detoxing was from it and side effects etc, but nothing could be worse than how I was already feeling. Let me tell you, I wish I had never worried about trying it! I have been panic attack free for nearly a month now. I spend my days washing dishes and laundry for my husband and playing with our daughter instead of spending hours of my time and energy on worrying about every tiny fluctuation in my body.
I guess I'm here to say two things: one, there is hope. This can be overcome. And two: don't be afraid to try medication! I know many people fear the detox and side effects like I did, but odds are the medication will help more than it will harm. I am finally feeling back to my old self, and I KNOW it's from the medication.
God bless y'all, and speedy recovery!
