I'm sorry if this is a long message but i really need to just get everything out. I have been taking mitrazipine since January after being diagnosed with depression after a miscarriage. I was getting better until September when i started to feel a pain in my side, i had an ectopic pregnancy before so i knew it wasn't this but the pain was similiar.For some reason i had a voice in my head telling me it was cancer and i couldn't get rid of this fear. I was scared but didn't go to the doctor as i was going on holiday with my partner and mum and didn't want to let them down. On holiday i started feeling fearful over everything, the heat, feeling faint, always tired etc etc. I didn't tell anyone as i was scared of being admitted to a foreign hospital and no one understanding me. Back home i finally admitted to my partner how i was feeling and went to the doctors, i was diagnosed with IBS. Week later pain getting worse, went to A&E twice no help. Back to doctors where i was diagnosed with anxiety and given fluxetine? (prozac) and taken off mitrazipine. As soon as i started taking these i had pains in my chest, pain in my arms and legs (which have been diagnosed as panic attacks but I'm not sure) and a feeling of dread and suicidal thoughts. 3 weeks ago i took an overdose of paracetmol ended up on hospital told them the worries i was having about pain in my side, finally got a scan and they found a cyst on my ovary. Bit relieved, i thought that was the end of it all. In the hospital i couldn't sleep, thought it was just worry. 5 days later still no sleep. Went to doctor again referred to mental hospital, given diazapam. Felt better for a week, Since Sunday i have been waking up in a panic, numb arms, migranes, can't calm down for hours. The fear of cancer has been replaced by fears of a brain tumour or i think i may have given myself brain damage with taking the fluxetine. I wasn't taking them properly, i took 19 over a week as i wrongly thought they would calm me down. I'm sorry this message is long and all over the place, i just typed as i was thinking. Anybody experiencing the same? Please help
