I had my first panic attack in November and it went downhill from there I have had so many feelings and have been on 3 different medications for anxiety but none worked ... the last medication I was on was lexapro , I was on for 7 weeks I was dizzy all the time from it , they kept messing with my doses until finally taking me off ... I was off for 5 weeks and about 3 weeks into that I just got a huge feeling of depersonalization and went down hill from there.... I was so lightheaded and felt drunk I staggered into the ER and felt like I was going to die .. The only thing they found was slightly low potassium but not enough to make me feel this way .... I have also have had 6 ekgs , 24 hour holter , stress / echo, echocardiogram, and today is my last day with a 30 day event monitor on, also I have been to an ent and they said everything looked good, I have had tons of blood work, Mri of the brain , nuerologist also my thyroid was checked ..... I have been feeling this way for almost 4 weeks , I seen a psychiatrist and questioned if it could have been withdrawls from the lexapro and he said no because I was only on it for 7 weeks and the last 3 weeks of that I was on 5 mg , he said anxiety ... And here I go again trying another med for anxiety , I have noticed it has lifted a bit but not much , lets just say I can move from the couch for 5 mins at a time , where the first 3 weeks I never moved unless it was to go to the bathroom .... Has anyone been through this? I hate living like this , I have twins I need to get back too 😭
