Hi I am new to this forum and wondered if anyone can help
I started taking Amlodipine 8 months ago as my blood pressure was ridiculously high and thought no more about it. Almost immediately i started to suffer from severe fatigue , grumbling stomach and constipation which I put down to stress of work. I then started to develop more and more physical pain in my joints, limbs and my right testicle all the time becoming more and more anxious about how I was feeling as any tests I had showed nothing wrong. Eventually I suffered two massive panic attacks and had to stop working as I was in excruciating pain and now suffering from anxiety and panic, at this time the doctor was telling me to pull myself together and it couldn’t be anything to do with tablets...... so he prescribed me more tablets for my anxiety which were anti depressants (Citalopram) but over the last 3 months the physical pain , mental fog and anxiety has got worse and worse. Finally I stopped taking Amlodipine 3 weeks ago and felt that the mental fog lifted a bit but if anything the physical pain increased when I stopped. I feel I have hit a wall with no where to go and wondered if anyone can relate to this scenario with any guidance please, I just want to get my life back and feel well. Thank you.
