Ok so excuse the rambling.. I was on Celexa 5mg then 10mg a few months ago. I stopped in June when I found out I was pregnant.. I ended up having a d&c for miscarriage July 26th and my hormones seemed to have even out.. For a week I didn't even think about anxiety. It was amazing.. Now fast forward to last night. I got a chest pain which was most likely gas and pain in my lung. That went into today so I stopped at my doctor.. She said being that i had a procedure done, I was automatically high risk for a blood clot in my lung. She sent me to the ER. I went there, I was on a heart monitor for 3 hours, 2 EKGs, chest xray, cat scan, and Bloodwork.. All they found wrong was a UTI.. Ok, great.. Here's my issue.. My pulse ox machine kept saying "poor signal" and blinking question marks and 100.. But when I looked, it said 89 and then went back up to 100.. 94, 92, 100, just kept going up and down.. My boyfriend tried it on and it also kept going from 89, 97, 100, question Mark.. Finally I had a panic attack because I thought something was seriously wrong and the doctor said "you came in with ur level being 99, the monitor is on wrong".. She fixed it and it went back up to 99/100... Now my mind is fixated on that 89.. Does that happen to anyone where a poor signal caused it to drop low? She fixed it and it went up to normal, but this anxiet mind will not let me let it go.. I keep telling myself that it was being very touchy, and I even saw it myself saying poor signal.. It does sound like I'm ok right????? This brings my next question.. I clearly thought i could handle being off meds.. I did good for a few months, but I'm just not ready.. I'm realizing my heart rate on anxiety meds was 72.. Without I'm in the low 90s.. After my doctors rude words today which I'm not even mentioning, I was literally trembling with a panic attack in the hospital.. I need meds again. I was not a can of celexa. Had daily heart palps. What meds is everyone else on? How do they feel? What are the side effects? Do they make a Xanax type of pill that is meant to be taken everyday? Xanax works great for me but I obviously don't want to chance an addiction beginning since I was slightly addicted to pills in the past. (I'm not now at all, but I do not want any habit forming pills in my system). Thank you guys for once again taking time to read this and calm me down.. You're pretty much the only ones who understand what a daily struggle this is.
