Recently I started taking prescribed medication and my heart was slowly stopping. I started on a Friday and by Sunday I realized something was wrong and if it wasn't for my anxiety I would of fell asleep and my heart rate would of dropped more. The ER doctor told me it was the medicine I take for migraines a beta blocker that caused it. My heart rate was below 45 and they had to give me medicine to counter act the other medicine. It's been. 3 weeks and I can't sleep cause I'm scared to dye I'm my sleep my anxiety is worse even tho I'm taking medicine. I've started seeing a therapist to help with trauma and ptsd! Yes they told me my anxiety is caused from trauma and I've developed ptsd! I would never wish anxiety on anybody! I take Zoloft which helps but only a little. I read about anxiety and knowing what's going on makes me feel safer and reading bored bores me to sleep. I hope everyone who suffers finds strength to overcome our over active brains!
