Hi everyone, this is my first post on here and I'm just looking for some advice/reassurance that I'm not alone in this! I was diagnosed with Health Anxiety in January after a month of panic attacks thinking I had something sinister wrong with me that I don't. My doctor put me on Fluoxetine and after a shaky 4 weeks I gradually began to feel a lot better, but the one thing I can't seem to shift is the tension headaches. It's like I have no control over the muscles across my forehead and face that squeeze and give me bloodshot eyes. I also have a chronic dry mouth. I never wake up with these symptoms they come on throughout the day. Has anyone found anything - literally any remedy that helps with the headaches or dry mouth. Painkillers don't seem to do it. Is this a side effect to fluoxetine? Then when I get the headaches it fuels the anxiety and I just end up in this vicious cycle. Any help would be much appreciated!
