I have no ideal why I can't stop the brian from telling me fear. I was at the point two days ago and told my daughter to take me somewhere for help. I have been on prozac for 2 1/2 wks and feel no better. I'm dizzy, scared of all health worries. Want to cal EMS all the time. I come to this post so much just to read and no I'm not alone. So many people with good and caring advise here. I want to be happy and not worry so much about things that I can't control. I know God's got everything in his hands and I so try to lend on that. Thank you all

    Hi Sheila, sorry your not feeling good. It's a long haul when you start meds and usually feel worse before you feel better. I've not been on Prozac so can't help with that but I'm currently on sertaline which is a slow acting drug and have had some terrible side effects including heightened anxiety and low mood. Felt like I was going mad with all the thoughts going on in my head but I've had a few good days too, you need to stay strong. You will get through it and your not alone. This forum has been a life saver for me, everyone is lovely and it's great for support and a chat so have spent many days on there reading different stories that make me feel positive. Stay strong, keep positive and if you need to chat I'm here xxx

    Hi sheila,

    I know exactly how u feel I myself suffer with health anxiety although it is under control at tge moment I am takin sertriline. When I first started taking it I felt worse than ever it took 3 to 4 weeks for them to really kick in and me starting to feel better.

    For me I did a lot of reading about anxiety and what it causes physically I felt the more I read about it the better I felt kinda put my mind at rest for a sort time.

    I had CBT and I believe it changed my life completely I would recommend this therapy to everybody who is suffering like I was.

    I hope you start to feel better soon
