warm flush tingling all over body

Posted , 9 users are following.

Hi all ??,

I'm a 49yo Male and recently been diagnosed with anxiety, I find it very difficult to deal with. The Doctor has put me on 50mg of sertraline a day (Started Two days ago), I get all kinds of not so wonderful symptoms. Like rapid heart beat, the sensation of skipped or missed beats, hot flushes, flatulence and just this moment a warm tingly feeling wash over my body then my heart started to race and a hot dlush. I have no pain what so ever, I've had ECG scans Bloods done, X-Ray and all have come back clean. The Cardiologist said there was no further investigation, am I going insane as this new episode scared me ....... Thank you in advance xx

      Hi ellabella x, it only happened once it was like a warm tingly sensation that ran all over my body, then my heart picked up its pace. It only lasted seconds and any one of these anxiety symptoms just come out the blue. There has been the odd one where I know I'm expecting one, but mainly out the blue x

      That's good , I know what you mean , I've recently started on citalopram however I'm finding its worsened my anxiety (which it can do at first) and I'm now having hot flushes when I've not had them before I started on the tablets

      Yes I feel the same , not knowing what's around the corner plus I think no one knows what it's like unless they've been there too , I wouldn't wish anxiety on anyone

      Your x right Kath, I'm a very sensitive person and do tend to presume the worst outcome. But like you x said I wouldn't wish this horrid experience on anyone, I've lost my appetite a little and feel disjointed at times xx

      I do know what you both mean. But no one, anxiety or no anxiety knows what's around the corner. That's like your child coming to you every night because a boogie man might be under their bed. Both just as ridiculous. The wisest, most sane, peaceful, most respected person in the world does not know what's around the corner. Well, maybe it's the boogie man, but if so, we can't hit him in the head with a shovel until we can acually see him.lol

      There is a verse from the bible that comes to mind. "This is the day that the lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it." Seems like good advice to us all, Davey.biggrin
