I have a seven month old and have been suffering with random symptoms since he was six weeks old. I am/was convinced it was some other rare disorder that just wasn't being picked up by regular medical tests. I have been to two internists, an endocrinologist, a sleep specialist and a neurologist. ALl who found NOTHING. on blood work or MRI and EEG. All docs have been telling me it's anxiety, but I just wouldnt accept it. I have had anxiety int he past, but nothing like these symptoms. These are constant...24/7 tension, neck tension, headache, ringing in my ears, exhaustion tingley shaky confused, memory issues, blurry vision and INSOMNIA. ANd I mean, the sleep study said I slept less than 3 hours and even that was insufficient. I feel as though I wake up at the drop of a hat. I hear everything. I also have a 4.5 year old, but this is not due to the kids. THey sleep through the night and my husband is pretty helpful with them.

I have been on 50mg of zoloft for a few months (when I did the sleep study, too) and am still having the symptoms which is why I was convinced it must be something else. How could you still have symptoms while taking an antidepressant, right?

DO you think I need to up my dose? Does this sound like anxiety too? At this point, I am not sure what is from anxiety and what is from sleep deprivation... I drink NO caffeine, and have good sleep hygene.

I should also mention I was anemic and had VERY low iron stores. So, I started thinking this was all due to that or some other nutrient deficiency. Have been on iron for months now and still feeling shakey, weak, exhausted, etc.

Is it time to accept that my symptoms are post partum anxiety and increase my dose of zoloft, switch to a new med?
