I want to start out by saying that I've never had anxiety problems before. I have recently begun to have some anxiety problems. I was getting headaches and head pressure really bad, along with a foggy head. I couldn't concentrate, everything felt weird, I didn't feel like myself, it was really scaring me. I had my first panic attack at work. I was terrified and mhad no idea what was going on. I originally thought it was my blood sugar dropping. My sister rushed me the ER and they told me it was just anxiety. At the time, all four of my wisdom teeth were impacted. I got them removed thinking that was the issue. Things got a little better, but not much. I woke up from the surgery in a panic attack. After that, I kept waking up panicking at night. Luckily that has gotten a little better. I went to the doctor to see if they could figure out why my head was foggy and causing me so much distress. My blood work and everything came back normal. My doctor prescribed me Celexa. I tired taking it but everything got worse. I also have to mention that I don't sleep well, especially now. I constantly wake up in the middle of the night. When I do sleep, I wake up in the morning not feeling rested at all. Recently, I've become almost afraid of sleep. Every time I lay down, my heart starts beating fast, and I can't sleep. I might get a couple hours a night, but that's it. I am tired constantly. I can't tell if I'm not sleeping because of anxiety, or I have anxiety because I'm not sleeping. Before this whole thing started, I remember telling my fiancé that I wasn't getting enough sleep. Basically now I'm frustrated, exhausted, scared, and have no idea what to do. I've never had anxiety problems before this. My sister keeps telling me that it's all just anxiety and to take the Celexa. But I had the foggy head feeling before any anxiety symptoms showed up. Does anyone have any ideas as to help me?
