Anxiety sufferers

Posted by xxFriskykittyxxUk on October 5, 2005, at 11:21:20

Hi im 24 from the uk, this is the 2nd time im being treated for anxiety unfortunatly this times worse than the last. A few yrs bk i was put on prozac for 2 yrs the last 6mths or so were hell i was sick with headaches everyday constant pressure in the bk of my head which soon went away as did my anxiety at the time when i stopped the meds strange eh. Well alls been fine till i was reffered to hosp for a scan on my breast due to a mystery pain which turned out to be a false alarm but this episode triggered off my anxiety. I found myself feeling out of breath, and also worrying a lil excessivly,bout a week later i went out with friends 1 night to a club all the way there i was thinkin to myself i feel so breathless im not going to enjoy myself this made me feel even more worked up and i started getting pains in my chest as we arrived there i told my b/f i couldnt go in and had to get him to take me home where after 30 mins of calming down i felt ok again, so i went to my doc that next week and they suggested AD's i was obviously weary after what prozac did to me but in the end i gave in as i was gettin fed up with feelin like an asthmatic, so i started citalopram (celexa) at 20mg after a few days i had slight nausea and mild headaches i started taking it in the evening but it seriously disturbed my sleep i felt like a pin drop woulda woke me all thru the night, so i started takin it in the mornin and this seemed better, after the first 2 wks my mood lifted then after that i felt even better, up until i missed a dose sunday just gone now im feelin a lil breathless again but all in all im alot better than i was, my doc suggested upping my dose to 30mg which i did today but so far ive had headache, im also going to see a councellor to see if there are ways i can alter any thought patterns that might be bringing on the anxiety, im usually very outgoing and extroverted but since that anxiety attack ive kinda been avoiding the situation which has made me feel like a recluse :( my social lifes took a bit of a dive but i feel comfortable at home, now my questions:- 1: has anyone had these "out of breath" sensations like me? 2:Does anyone think that i should force myself bk out instead of avoiding the situation? If anyone has had anything similar happen to them please advise i dont want this ruling my life, all the best to those who are suffering with similar problems. thanks kitty.x
