Hi all,
I was wondering if anyone has any advice or encouragement. My anxiety the passed few days has been horrible. I have been suffering with GAD for over a year now. I used to be able to control it with Xanax or just with breathing techniques. I have all the typical anxiety symptoms such as racing heart, palpitations, and just anxious and nervous just about all the time. I have been to my GP and she has ran blood work, Ekg, and she did a 24 hour holter monitor because I had a few irregular heartbeats on the Ekg. All the tests except for the few irregular beats came back normal. On the holter monitor I did not even have one irregular beat. So, she started me on Zoloft. I have been increasing the dosage a 25 mg at a time as directed by my doctor. I am now taking 75mg of Zoloft and .25 mg of Xanax. The Zoloft I take once a day and the Xanax twice, but it still does not take the entire anxious, nervous feelings away. It has been three weeks now on the Zoloft but only 1 week on the 75 mg dose. I wake up in the morning still nervous. I actually could not move my head because my muscles have been so tense that I decided to go to a chiropractor. I can now move my head but I am now in constant pain. I made an appointment with a specialist next Friday so hopefully she can get the meds right. I think that is what I need. I am starting to feel really sad and depressed because I just cannot enjoy life. I start to feel afraid to be alone because eventhough my doctor has told me there is nothing wrong with my heart I still do not believe her sometimes. Anyone that has any advice I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks to all who have taken the time to read my long post!!
