Please help :(

Posted , 5 users are following.

Today has not been a good one for me. Super anxious because for the past probably 4 or so days my head has been so out of it. But it doesn't feel like DP.. It just feels..off. And I've been getting headaches. I just feel so like out of it so to speak and as if I'm on the verge of something bad happening or something like a seizure (although I've never had a seizure)

I take .25 klonopin daily and have for the past week maybe week and a half (not very long at all) and I think my anxiety is trying to convince me that takig the klonopin will give me a seizure even though it does the exact opposite and is used to prevent seizures. The only time it can cause them is if they're taken at a high dose for a long time and is are stopped abruptly. I spoke with my doc and she said it could be a side effect from the kpin or could be from anxiety. So now idk what to do. Keep taking kpin which I feel has been helping somewhat with my anxiety, or stop taking them.

I've been prescribed Zoloft but am terrified of meds so starting them has been a huge battle for me. She also prescribed me Ativan to see if I like that better than the kpin, but I really don't want to depend on benzos for a long time.

Has anyone ever gotten these weird head feeling? Idk what to do and I'm tired of this anxiety ruling my life

    Hello michelle I'm experiencing the same anxiety symptoms as you , you are definitely not alone , mine started a few months ago . so basically I get a lot of different head feelings like burning under my scalp , tingling , sharp shooting pains in different areas , tension headaches , other types IG headaches I can't really explain they are weird , neck stiffness ,and line a tight band is around my head like a congestion feeling . it's really truly scary at times , ive never had a seizure in my life but its times where I think I'm going to have one , I pray that I never do , my doctors and neurologist said it quite unlikely , but these feelings are scary . I've seen many of doctors and had many of test to rule out anything serious like a tumor or bleeding . thus had been going on for quite a while bow but it us off and on , not steady which is important
