I've been dealing with a bout of health anxiety myself for the last 5 months. And it is all heart related, so I know exactly where you are coming from. Have you gotten a clean bill of health from your pcp? Taking any medication? Counseling?

I was started on 5mg years ago when I first started taking it. I think that's pretty much the normal for lexapro. Then once they see how it effects you they can up the dosage if need be or keep it where it is at for the time being. I stayed on 10mg for about 2 years. Then been on 20mg for the past 4-5 years.

You are not alone. I have been having beck and shoulder pain or maybe tension and I believe it's my neck out of wack, but my mind says it's my heart. I have had moderate anxiety all day today. What are your symptoms?
