I figured this might be a good idea! I want to see what symptoms everyone else has had and maybe you will find someone who has had the same!


Blurred vision

Trouble breathing

Knot in my throat

Racing heart 190 BPM

Heart flutters so so so any




Pale skin




Lights in my eyes

Ears ringing

Ear fullness

Being scared all day


Empty minded


Chest tightness

Hand numbness

Mind you I'm only 26 and have been checked from head to toe and told this is all anxiety

    Hi I'm 23 & started citalopram 7 days ago. My main symptom is severe nausea & loss of appetite. Living off protein shakes so I'm going to call my doctor tomorrow & try to get some anti sickness pills.

    Also aching all over, clammy, & still anxious X

      When did you stop feeling sick? I've probably lost a stone I think as well over a few weeks. Were you eating anything at all? I can only drink at the moment & have had half an orange, a smoothie and a protein shake today. Literally can't cope!

      I forced myself to eat and the next day I woke up completely better!! I prayed for it!!! It was hard to come this far!!! But I promise it will get better! Its your mind making you think you can't eat, the physical symptoms are real but it always starts with one thought!

      yes really!!!!sodas and coffee has alot of caffeine in it and caffeine triggers anxiety..processed foods and junks are just plainly not healthy for you so keep a good diet and you feel good about yourself..try and get some sweat out produces happy hormones

      i use to be like you and had drastic weight lost which had resulted in intolerence to coldness even slight cold air and visible veins..what i did was cut my meals into smaller sizes..always curry healthy mix of nuts with when you feel you can eat just pop it in your mouth..almonds are good source of proteins..its said to make your mind sharper it may just make you think straight..pistachios are good for heart..and cashews are just plain heavenly..haha..drink warm milk and camomile tea to help you calm down..take hot showers to soothes body aches and pains..

      Yes this website has helped so much, don't think i could actually get through it without support from everyone on here.

      The ginger & lemon drink helped me stop feeling nautious! Apart from when i think about eating food.
