In October, I was put on Gabapentin and it made my pulse sky rocket too 100-140 and stay there for around 2 weeks straight, all day (Had an ECG/blood work and they all came back clear). Ever since then, my anxiety moved from horrible OCD to even worst health anxiety. Now I have a really big fear of death (I'm a healthy teenager so idk why I'm scared of this exactly). For around 2-3 weeks, I have not been able to sleep. I'll go a full 24+ hours without sleeping and then sleep for 4-6 hours and repeat every other day. I developed a fear of dying in my sleep now and whenever I wake up in the middle of the night, I have this overall state of just fear and dread. I feel like I woke up because I'm dying and it's the worst feeling imaginable. It usually scares me enough to where I don't go back to bed. Along with all of that, I have this fear that I'm losing control and one day, I'll kill myself without actually wanting too? It's completely irrational but it runs through my head when I panic. Also, the tops of my arms (biceps) feel very weak lately and the back of my neck/head feels tense. Anyone get anything similar to any of these fears/symptoms? I feel like there could be something wrong with my brain/muscles and along with all that, I've been in and out of doctors for having constant stomach pain for 3-4 weeks. I feel like a complete mess. Feedback would be really nice and it really helps me. Thank you!
