Yesterday was the worst day I've had since starting on Sertraline. Compared to some I thought I'd been lucky with the side effects but yesterday I felt as if I was hit with everything it has to give.
I started with shaking in my hands that was so bad I couldn't grip a pen or a mouse. Then the nausea and stomach pain, followed by such an intense feeling of anger that I barely managed to control it. The only way I could shake it off was to find a quiet corner and cry my eyes out, not that it helped for very long.
For no apparent reason I started to sweat profusely, to the point that my shirt was saturated, not a good look when working in an open plan office.
For most of the afternoon I had a headache that felt like my head was in a vice. There was nothing I could do as I can't take Ibuprofen and without it Paracetamol does nothing for me. I also had a high pitched sound in my right ear which I haven't had before.
I have read other people's experiences and understand why some decide to come off Sertraline but yesterday was the first time that I had my own doubts. Hopefully yesterday was just a blip as I hadn't done too badly before.
