Hey everyone I’m Dee I was diagnosed with anxiety earlier this year from a health scare I’ve been told that I’m perfectly fine but I don’t feel fine half of the time. I go to the er and they say I’m fine but when I look at my lab results I think other wise my crp level is 13 had my heart checked out it’s completely normal. No lupus or arthritis, I’m just afraid I’ll have that health scare again Tired of the palpitations the heavy chest and the pressure in my head and the blurry vision not to mention when I walk I feel like I’m going to fall over. Got my ears checked they’re fine too so all I could think of is it I have cancer or something. Or is it the lexapro side effect? Been on lexapro for about a month

It can be the Lexapro start up effects... have you had your iron levels checked? I had heart palpitations and dizziness that turned out to be anemia

Anemia is overlooked often as just anxiety. Is yours under control now?

Yes, I take iron and it’s improved a lot. I no longer have palpitations or dizziness. I take something called ez melts carbonyl iron. It absorbs well and doesn’t upset the stomach.
