Has anyone else experienced discomfort or pain in their ribs or chest area whilst on these meds? I dont have it all the time but any new aches/pains or discomforts worry me with my health anxiety

      Hi babsyboo no its not an intense pain its more of an ache on one of both sides of my ribs but isnt there all the time.

      I do get the occasional head ache but mine are more at the back of my head in the bottom corners or the side of my head. My other side affects are various sore or burning or itching skin on diferent parts of my body, the occasional pain/twinge/discomfort in my abdomen, groin or testicles and pain or soreness in my back. Also had a lot of increased anxiety but thankfully the nausea went within the first 10 days. Im just coming up to my 5th week

      I get headaches the doctor did say was side effect. Sorry you are still suffering, my main thing is intrusive thoughts caused by zopiclone withdrawa; Have got a book that explains why you get them does help bit. Think morning anxiety is pretty common. Have been making myself go out every day which has racked up the anxiety somewhat. They seem to help a lot of people but I know it is very hard being patient waiting for them to work. I"m sure you will get there they do seem to take a while sometimes to work, hope things soon improve for you x

How far along are u on the Celexa and what's ur dose

      I'm on 5 MG and ending week 7 on Monday

      yes I get the headache and much more like very bad nausea , shakes , tingling and so on . I get thoughts and they not nice scary like I'm going to stay this way the anxiety does that it also gives me thoughts of me dieing soon or that I have something else wrong with me , do u get does ? Yes I was told the Celexa takes time to work like 12 weeks 3 month and very slow . So get it faster and some it takes longer 😡 hope I get balance out soon on the meds so I won't have the side effects anymore and the anxiety is gone amen , please write me back love to hear what you think babsyboo

      hey babsboo im on 20mg and usually feel better and less anxious as the day goes on but some days i just feel anxious all day long. I have health anxiety and recently my increased anxiety has me looking at and worrying about various moles, freckles and skin blemishes as well as thinking one side of my ribs sticks out more or other parts of my body look strange.

      I dont get the heat sensation with my ribs just the occasional ache etc. I dont get the skin tingling but i do get the burning, soreness and/or itching mainly on the side of my neck, my thighs and the lower part of my right arm near my wrist.

      I've messed around bit as cit initially made my hair fall out so switched to sertraline which was awful. Now back on cit nearly 4,weeks on 10 mg. I get horrible intrusive thoughts that i may have harmed people in the street. Do try go out but it obviously feel very uncomfortable. I was very angry as being made to go cold turkey from zopiclone caused it all. Tried all sorts therapy and mindfulness which didnt work for me. Book i got is helping a bit explaining why lot therapies don't work. Like you hopeful the meds will work, Ithink lot people feel they will never improve, but many seem have got relief from taking these meds so try and take comfort from that. It is difficult to be patient but it does seem they aren't a quick fix.
