I'm just a little confused. I have this week come to agree I suffer with GAD after years of going to the doctors for heart palpitations, chest pain, waking up nauseated almost everyday (worse when stressed), extreme weight loss, tiredness beyond the norm or insomnia. I even believe I've been having sorts of panic attacks over the years but not known, where my chest tightens and hurts, feel blood rushing to my ears, I get dizzy and definitely take too much oxygen in.. Yet I just assume "I feel sick". I don't think there's one physical symptom that doesn't fit with anxiety but I never considered myself anxious before. Has anyone else had the same problem where they didn't realise they were suffering this? I mean, I can't even park my car without a mild panic attack because I'm worried about people behind me or if I don't get it right. To me it feel absurd I thought I was a happy person all these years but I was constantly stressed out and waking up worried about literally everything possible, but not know I'm worrying.
ive only been on citalopram 4 days now, no physical side affects really, just a little sleepy. Day 2 I was very erratic, day 3 I woke up without worries, it was weird, I could think if a problem and not get the waves of worry in my stomach, I didn't even wake feeling nauseated but as the day progressed I got really bad. Today is more of a mellow day luckily. So I think experiencing a day waking up without anxiety has proven to me I definitely have a problem with it but I don't understand how I've not known.
