I started getting really bad anxiety about 6 years ago. My heart would race and pound in my chest. I got really dizzy and lightheaded. I felt like my insides were shaking. I felt short of breath and my breathing felt 'choppy'. It got so bad that I was scared to get dressed and even get up off of my couch. I lived in fear constantly and was always scared that I was gonna die. I started taking Effexor XR in a low dose and eventually increased it to 150mg a day. It took a while to kick in but once it did, I felt like a completely new person. All of my symptoms and crazy feelings went away. I stayed on the medication until I found out I was pregnant in May of 08. It was hard coming off of it. I got extremely dizzy and lightheaded and had a hard time even standing up. After about a month I felt great and also throughout my whole pregnancy. I figured my anxiety had gone away. But when I brought the baby home from the hospital and tried taking a nap, my body started feeling shaky again and then my heart started racing and I got that worried feeling again. I just started taking Effexor XR again a day ago and am hoping it works its wonders like it did for me the first time I started taking it. Its so scary feeling constant worry and shakiness. Even though nothing is really wrong with you, it still feels like something is. Anyone else feel like this??
