Re: ANxiety???
Jan 29, 2009
I dont know what my anxiety is from, which actually makes it worse. I woke up in the middle of the night one night to my heart racing so bad that I couldnt even stand up. My father rushed me to the hospital cause I was almost passing out. I had every test done on the planet and found nothing. For 2 weeks my heart raced, my body shook, I was dizzy, I couldnt stand and I just felt scared like I was gonna die. I made my way to my doctor who said I had anxiety. I also went to a cardiologist and he gave me a beta blocker to slow my heart down. I never got an actual diagnosis for anything except anxiety. I started taking Effexor XR and it took about a month to work. For that whole time period I didnt get off my couch or even get dressed. It was so bad that I was making myself throw up from being so scared for no reason. I would take myself to the emergency room about once a week cause it was so bad. Sometimes I would go just to feel better, I guess being around doctors comforted me. I took the meds for 5 years and felt great. Then I got pregnant last year and had to stop taking all of my meds. The withdrawl was horrible. I was fine throughout the pregnancy. Then the first night home with the baby, my body freaked out again and the anxiety came back. Now Im on my 5th day of taking Effexor XR again and it hasnt really kicked in yet. So now I have a 2 week old baby who I cant even take care of because Im all whacked out.
