Hi all, I'm new to this so bare with me I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety, depression and panic disorder 18 yrs ago. We got it under control with my wonder drug paxil 30mg daily but like alot of people i would take it until I felt better then stop I've always been in good health other then that. Threw the yrs anxiety has come back once a yr but never on the paxil until now. My father was diagnosed with throat cancer and since my anxiety has spiralled out of control the dr up my paxil to 40 mg a week ago but it hasnt kicked in yet. I have a dread that I will have lung cancer and die even though a yr ago i had a ct scan and xrays and all is fine. Im a smoker and i drink two gallons of sugary tea a day which i just gave up (the tea) and cut my smoking in half in hopes of turning my health anxiety around. I also noticed since the relapse of anxiety my blood pressure is way up160/100 which is also freaking me out. Someone please help I want to believe the dr im fine and the bp is just caused by my anxiety but I fear i have something lifethreatening wrong. HELP ME PLEASE.
