Hi I am a new member. I have found it interesting reading your posts. I had my appendix out about 5 weeks ago and two weeks later started to experience terrible anxiety. I have never had it before however work in a stress environment for my work. Has anyone taken antidepressants for this. I was prescribed Lexapro but do not know if it would help. After the surgery I started thinking I was going to die and something was wrong with me. I find the only way I can sleep at night is to take Mersyndole. I have started going to a Cranial Osteopath who says she can help. Would love to read some of your thoughts and experiences.
