Hope no one is getting tired of me.....but I feel very strange almost like my head is tingling. I've been on Venlafaxine for a week now and instead of having full panic attacks my brain seems to be going haywire and thinking omg I'm dying or my heart is going to stop. The only physical symptoms I get now is sweaty palms. I can't really feel my heart palpitating anymore which weirdly freaks me out too so I'm always checking my pulse. I have this overwhelming feeling I will just drop dead. Or I feel like my spirit is getting ready to leave my body because I feel like I am just floating around don't even feel like I'm walking. I'm so scared and don't want to die. Last Thursday I was in the er and they did an ekg and blood work and chest X-ray and all came back fine but i keep thinking well what if this is the real thing now and they missed it then?? My chest will hurt and my left arm will all of a sudden hurt and i told my husband and he of course told me to relax your not having a heart attack they checked you already. But I'm still so scared of just dropping dead and the thought gets so overwhelming in my mind that I'm going to die that I feel like I might pass out.

    Sadly that's how it goes, so many extreme thoughts and feelings. The more anxious we get, the more adrenaline, the more strange sensations and fears. Have you considered therapy along with or instead of meds? It can really help make sense of things

    Try coming off dairy. It can really help you. I find dairy makes me really ill & makes my head feel so awful & spaced out & hurt all the time. You'll need to give it a month or so to see if it makes any difference to you and if it does then maybe go see your doctor to get a dietician to make sure your having a good balanced diet but for now you can look on the net for loads of dairy free ideas. I know it sounds crazy but going dairy free has been the only thing that's helped me. You have to be strict no cheese, milk or yoghurt. Obviously this might not work for you but def worth a try.
