Confused... Please help!

Hey all I am kinda new here so ya... anyways for the past few days I have felt like I am getting sick and its weird... I am all achy-painy and I have a little headache and stomach ache and my throat feels wierd. This all really sucks because I have bad anxiety issues and as yall can probably tell, i have emetophobia (fear of vomiting). I have been on a 25mg dose of Zoloft for the past 4.5 years and I recently went to my psychiatrist who told me that my dose was too low. I am bumping up my dose but I dont seem to feel any better yet... do you think the way i am feeling is due to anxiety? I am trying really hard to believe that it is but i just dont know. my mom keeps telling me i am not sick and i keep saying that i know/agree but in the inside, i cant make myself believe that it is because of anxiety. i really want to feel better but ugh its so difficult and it really sucks. please help, i really appreciate it! xoxo

Hello. It's natural to feel anxious especially when you may be getting sick. Remind yourself that it's is natural to not feel well when you are not well. Do something you love to help get you through the difficult moments. When I am feeling anxious I try and go on a walk and get some fresh air. Meditation is also great as well as yoga. Wishing you all the best.



Maybe it takes time for the higher dose to kick in. When i feel down or anxious i try and get out . sometimes it really is hard to motivate myself as on my own during the day but generally feel better for doing it.



Hi eme :-) don't hide how you feel it's the worst you can do :-( telling someone how you feel can sometimes get rid of the anxiety or put it away for another time at least :-) that's why I use this forum, when I'm suffering I come here and read posts and try and help... Hope u feel better soon
