Hello all . My husband I think had a mini break down or something like that . He was always a bit of a worrier but last Xmas it started with his brother dying unexpectedly at a relatively young age from a heart attack this caused my hubby so much upset that he nearly had a heart attack himself and after tests it turned out that that he had a blocked artery and was given an angioplasty procedure after which he wasn't well as he had allergic reaction o some of the meds used in the prefecture but the actual op was a success . However ever since he has been suffering from anxiety . At first we didn't know what it was he was weak shaky night sweats not eating always getting these rushes as he calls them tingling etc he was so bad one day that I called an ambulance an they took him to hospital but phisically there was nothing wrong and that's when it was said it must be anxiety . I never imagined how unwell this can. Make a person and feel really helpless as to how to help him over come this . He is on lorazepam 1mg at the moment which helps but as its addictive his gp wants him off that which of course is causing more anxiety and she has given him certaline which is meant to be anxiety/ antidepressant but doesn't seem to do much . I just don't know what to do now or where turn ne for help and would greatly appreciate any advice anyone has or any experience they want to share. Thank you and have a good day all.
