    glad u hav had some good days on them hun it might be a side effect from the tablets just try to ignore it as much as u can whilst reassuiring yourself it is your anxiety again, try and stay positive like u have been and take some deep breaths and tell urself over and over again as much as u need to you have had it before u got yourself through it and it WILL pass, i know its easier said than done iv got the pounding heart at moment, and sharp pain under left arm but i keep saying to myself iits my anxiety i have had it before and i will get through it stay strong hun im here if u need to keep talking to keep your mind occupied x

    Hey honey I'm the same tonight. I have had great days but last few awful.

    i keep thinking it's my heart too. Was really bad earlier, it settled and now it's back. Most awful feeling ever!! Seems to be a panic with me. Hope you feel better very soon xx

    I can totally relate im on day 8 of fluoxetine and i haven't been feeling great but today ive had constant chest symptoms such as racing heart and it pounds so hard i can see my left breast moving and ive had a dull ache under my breast ie chest pain aswell as the odd palpitation and feeling like i need to sit down otherwise i feel faint. Like you ive been thinking about it a lot today so thats probably why we feel so anxious. How are you feeling now? Is it your first time on fluoxetine or anti ds? Its my first time on fluoxtine and i still wake every day thinking should i stop taking it, i keep wondering weather its anxiety why i feel like this or the medication. My mind must be playing tricks on me though because i felt terrible a lot before i started taking them.x

      I understand thats exactly the stage i got to because i have a 2 year old i knew i couldn't carry on keep feeling ill daily. I tend to feel fine when i wake but soon as i take my medication within an hour or 2 i feel it and today i feel nauseous, dizzy and feel like every time i stand up that i could pass out because those feelings increase when im up and about. How are you feeling today? What anxiety symptoms was you getting initially prior to taking the anti ds?x
