After 7 weeks on 20 mg and 4 good weeks to be hit by the dreaded symptoms again in the last 3 days has made me feel low 😢

Im sure if I could just get rid of the physical symptom of CONSTANT shaking which leads to my anxiety to rise higher and higher and lead to tears I would feel so much better.....is it the anxiety that causes he shaking OR the shaking that causes the anxiety....OR .....is it a side effect of the Cit that has returned??

In the 4 weeks of feeling near 'normal' and ' me' again the shaking wasn't there......oh why has it started again 😕

Feeling so disheartened right now

Self pity setting in ........😡

Best wishes to all

    Hey there,

    I'd give it 1 more week, and if symptoms don't go away, talk to your doc. Maybe you need to up the dose?

    Shaking is awful, and it is a vicious cycle. You don't know if it's the anxiety or the meds. I still get some inner shaking, and if I pay attention to it, I get anxiety. I just tell myself that I'm ok, I just have to ride it out! Easier said than done...however, it's doable!

    Thanks so much Suzy,Zoe and Irina for your kind words.....it helps so much just to be able to reach out to people who KNOW what this all horrid anxiety buisness feels like!

    My family are amazing but I hate putting all my misery on them and I know they feel so helpless .......this isn't the wife,mum,sister,Aunty they know AT ALL!

    Its 7.30 and I'm just sat in bed trying to calm myself down .....shaking is bad which has lead to tears again....it's just such a horrid feeling waking up like this each morning! 😔

    I know you all understand .....thanks for the support....it really does help 

    Wishing us all well and strong soon

    Hugs right back at you Suzy 

    I am just clinging on to all the reports by people who say that after time and patience Cit really worked.......it has already shown me it can ....I just need to remember that!

    This anxiety lark is rubbish isn't it .......and when like me you have absolutely no idea where it has come from or any reason to feel like this with all the love I have surrounding me it hurts and saddens me even more ! 😞

    Wishing you happier days soon Suzy x
