Hello. I am currently going through quite an extreme period of anxiety, mainly health-related. After a recent prolonged period of dizziness, headaches etc, I have gone back to Sertraline (I was on this for a good few years a while ago) as I have been finding the anxiety episodes more problematic and regular.
The side effects are not pleasant: upset stomach, lack of appetite, nausea etc but also pretty persistent tension headaches, like a pressure on top of/at the sides of my head. The more I dwell in these, the more they cause concern. I have just had an MRI and am now anxious for results. I don’t remember feeling so on edge and unpleasant before but I think it’s my GAD along with the Sertraline side effects causing this.
I’m just looking for some reassurance I guess. As readers may we’ll know, when you’re in this state of mind as I am currently, it’s so hard to brush it off - it’s extremely powerful and damaging!
Thanks - MST1974
