  • HI, i hate being left alone at anytime now and it makes me feel like a child that needs a babysitter. you really need to go and see your doctor about the head pressure. are you on any meds?

  • hi sam not on any meds tried citralapam 8 weeks ago had serotoning syndrome really scary could hardly move my jaw too scared to try any thing else do you not get pressure in ears x

  • Hi Mio1,

    I ve done some research on google and found out that you can still take meds even with serotonin example is mirtazipane.Usually prescribed by gp as s awful what you are going through.i was like you till 10 days ago scared and panicked to be in bymyself(my partner at work) ans frightened to go needs medical help.i m sure gp knows exactly what you need if you have serotonin syndrome.hugs

  • Hope you re doing ok today.thinking of you

  • Hi milo1 I am experiencing the same at the moment, yesterday and today especially I have felt like I'm gasping for air to breath :( I feel dizzy and my fear of fainting is really strong at moment! I find these symptoms really effect my eyes, I too have walked round the last two days like in on another planet, felt very strange! X

  • I get similar feelings and get convinced Im having a heart attack, my husband has registered as a carer for me now to enable him to stay off work or I have had to call him from work a few times cause Im affraid of collapsing while Im alone in the house with my babies, Im not so bad when my 8 and 7 year old are here because I know they could dial 999 or go get a neighbour they are really sensible and I feel awfull thinking of my 7 and 8 year old as some kind of security

  • hi simonjc are you on any meds how long have you suffered like this d you have good days or do you always have to have someone with you x

  • Hi love I do get good days, I have been having panick attacks for four years and I have just changed from sertraline to fluoxidine

  • do you sleep well because without sleep anxiety is ten times worse ifeel for you i hope your new meds work soon are you taking vit b6 and omega 3 they really do help have you had any therapy x

  • HI milo I normally love my sleep but we have 4 children 1 of which is a 5 month old , he is pretty good to be fair, he rarely wakes more than once through the night but hes got a cleft palate wich is going to be operated on next week + the doc thinks I have pnd too and Im having a lot of trouble off who I thought was my friend

  • hi simonjc how are you feeling my friends child was born with cleft palate after a few ops he was fine he now plays rugby for local under eight team s dont worry there what do you think caused your anxiety to start do you know thinking of you x

  • hi train 80 got mirtazipine from doc still too scared too take them going to give it a few more days thanks for info x

  • Hi the thought of death scares the hell out of me and because I have had a lot of family die, I think its affected me.

  • are you in good health other than your anxiety i too am frightened of death but we have to live life first what has been the problem with your family health wise my brother died when he was just 38 a massive heart attack he was a super fit person never went to doctor the post mortem reavealed he must have had a problem for years now sometimes i think i have a problem with my heart when i get anxious x

  • my mum died when I was 20 , I had a half brother who died @ 5 weeks old and the post mortem was inconclusive, when I was going to visit his grave that was when they started I was convinced I was having a heart attack and ended up in a+e .
