Mar 6th I went to a dr to look into getting on lexapro for my anxiety, I’ve taken this several years ago and it worked wonders for me. She put me on a 10mg to start.. I took it and an hour later my heart started racing, my tongue felt like it was too big for my mouth, my arms felt numb, my throat felt like it was closing and I couldn’t catch my breath. I had never experienced anything like that and it scared me to a point I thought I was having a heart attack or stroke. Took me over an hour to come out of it.. told the dr about it she told me to give it 3 more days minimum.. I was too terrified to take it so I didn’t and she prescribed me buspar..
Mar 9 I was standing in the kitchen and felt a pain on my right side lower abdomen I crouched down to try to find comfort. It went away to a point but bothered me throughout the night it felt like a stabbing pain so I decided to go to the dr.
Mar 12 went to dr had an ultrasound done on my pelvis to check appendix, results were fine. He gave me bentyl for stomach pain. I took it for 3 days and the 3rd day my face went numb and I went into another panic attack (still haven’t taken buspar yet.. I wanted to figure out what my stomach issue was first) Now before I went to the dr from the beginning when I got on lexapro I had NEVER had a panic attack in my life. Not like that, mine was always just the nervousness queasy stomach clammy hands type thing..
I quit taking the bentyl just decided I would take the side pain day by day.. a couple days later and currently I started having yellow stools, ongoing pain in my back, extreme nausea..
I’ve had ultrasounds for my gallbladder, appendix, pancreas, liver. I’ve had an mri on my brain for dizziness.. I’ve had lots of blood work done.. X-ray on my stomach.. everything fine..
I can’t believe eat because I’m so nauseated, I’ve been drinking nothing but water. I graze on small things to try to keep my energy up.. but I still feel so weak and lightheaded..
I still have discomfort but not severe on my right side that’s shifted to the upper by my ribs and then I’ve felt it on the left side. I’ve had chest heaviness, feeling short of breath, heart palpitations.. I’m sure some of that is anxiety related.. but overall I’ve just felt like I’ve had a severe case of the flu only no fever and no vomiting.. my legs feel like rubber.. I just feel terrible. And all my test results show no nothing abnormal...
This is making me feel crazy!!
