10 months back I was diagnosed with anxiety and depression. I was given nexito 10mg. After 2 months anxiety subsided. But depression remained. After tapering I completely left the nexito(SSRI) 20 days ago. During tapering and going off the nexito, i did feel light anxiety and low mood, but in 10 days it was ok. I decided to have my blood test to just check my cholesterol levels ( my previous blood tests showed up high triglycerides level, but anxiy and depression was major concern for me back then). My triglycerides level came out to be 550(should be <150) and my vitamin b12 145, vitamin D 15.1 ( both deficiency). Doctor gave me atocor 10, neurobion and sunbless( vitamin D tablets). I was having them as prescribed and was also following good diet and excercising to get better. But suddenly 3 days ago, i felt little anxiety and short of breath, as soon as i tried to sleep, i felt totally out of breath and wasnt able to sleep. In the morning, when I checked my BP and glucose levels, my BP was normal and glucose normal. But during checking my BP i blacked out for about 20-25 seconds( maybe because it blocked blood flow in hand ). Morning I was taken to doctor, still feeling short of breath, but my BP was still normal. Doctor saw my 10 days old report and without and further test concluded it is because of vitamin b12 deficiency and prescribed me neurobion injections 5 days consecutively then once a week for a month and once a month of 3 months. I have taken 2 injections till now I dont feel much better. But Iam not convinced, if it were vitamin b12 deficiency why did it suddenly showed by 3 days ago? What other tests I should have to diagnose what is happening to me? My legs are tired, my hands cannot grip properly after waking up, easily grtting tired, feeling slight dizziness in head. God, just after I thought the war is over with SSRI, This new thing came. I feel so frustrated !! Please help
