Hello, I have been having some serious problems the last few weeks. Allow me to begin.
- About 4 weeks ago I started getting some neck pain, associated with some very bad anxiety. I was driving to school one day and got very anxious in the car. I started squinting in the car, my eyes very sensitive to the light, I'd get anxious and worried that I was going to have a seizure while driving and die. I get to class and feel very out of it, almost like I'm not myself. I didn't think I'd make it out of class to be honest. Anyways, I get home and my anxiety subsides a little bit. I look in my medicine cabinet and see I still have some prozac 10mg. I decide to take them hoping it will ease the anxiety. I feel it works for some reason, maybe it's just the placebo effect kicking in, I'm not really sure. I take it for about 6 days then go back to my general physician and we decide to up the dosage to 20mg. Needless to say I'm still anxious, but nothing as severe as I'm about to describe. I take it the first day and I feel spaced out and weird. My anxiety is back in full blast and I keep worrying about dying, and that I have a brain tumor, a lot of weird dreams, insomnia, insane bouts of anxiety, vision problems and all this other dumb stuff. My doctor gave me Xanax .25mg to use during severe anxiety. I stop taking the prozac 20mg and decide to see if I'll get any better. Well, no luck really. I start getting all these weird feelings, like I'm sick with some sort of disease. My body starts aching, I can't sleep well at all (I keep waking up every night like 7-8 times) and every time I sleep I get these weird dreams. I remember last night I was sitting on my computer and I started to get a little anxious. All of a sudden my eyes start killing me and I cant look at the screen anymore because of the pain from the light. I dont know whats going on but I keep feeling like Im going to die, I even consider killing myself so I dont have to feel like this anymore. Its awful, I dont know whats going on. I had a blood test and am awaiting the results, and I have an MRI of my brain this monday (I pretty much insisted that the doctor prescribe it because of my anxiety). SOMEONE PLEASE HELP ME! This is terrible. I keep reading that maybe its prozac withdrawal, but then I get this thought in the back of my head that its a brain tumor or epilepsy, or something dumb. My head tightens up and I start getting a sour stomach. I don't know whats wrong with me, but I cant deal with it anymore.
