I've got this constant worry that I have epilepsy. Some days I'm completely fine and don't worry about it but then something will happen and it brings all the worry back! I got put on citalopram and ever since I've been on them I've been have these episodes. I don't know what they are but I can try and describe how I feel, I start to feel really flushed and breathless, my throat feels really hot and tingling goes all through my chest and my cheeks. Afterwards I feel pretty monged out and tired. My mum and my sister have epilepsy, so hence the stupid worrying. I just feel like every time this happens in my head I get this dread feeling that it is epilepsy and imagine how my life will change etc and it terrifies me! I feel like being on citalopram should have made all the worry go away but then I also feel like if they're making me like this then I wanna stop taking them! I don't know why this keeps happening I'm just really scared that it is what I think it is! Help meeeeee
