I posted a few weeks ago about my increased anxiety levels, well I have improved greatly now. Turns out I had experienced an adverse reaction to Citalopram (causing rapid heart rate, increased panic and dizziness to name but a few), my doctor told me to come off the meds straight away with no tapering etc. which needless to say has made me suffer, I am on my third week and the withdrawal symptoms are pretty much gone, finally!!! however my health anxiety has definitely been effected by this experience and I becoming increasingly worried about my heart rate as it has been sitting between 90 and 100 bpm at rest for the past 3 weeks, I get frequent chest pain and palpitations, my doctor has told me that my heart is fine, but I can't help worrying about it as it just doesn't want to go down and before all this started my pulse was normal (between 60 and 75 bpm at rest).
I'm sorry for the rant but it keeps playing on my mind and I'm not sure what to do so if anyone has some advice or has had a similar experience your feedback will be greatly appreciated
Thank you, Carina
