I took my meds last night with water and as soon as i swallowed it i got really bad heartburn. Ive not had heartburn for years. I started getting anxious about it and thinking something else was wrong with me, like i was going to have a heart attack. I know it was my anxiety playing up again, but my mind wouldnt shut off from it because my throat was burning and i had pain and discomfort in my chest, so i started going clammy and sweaty. I knew it was just heartburn, even when i took some antacid tablets i started having them same panicky thoughts about taking something ive not taken before and if it will harm me. I think the dr may need to review my meds cos i dont think 20mg is working well enough to stop the panic attacks, when they happen i feel like a thousand needles are going through my arms and i always think that because im on meds for it, it wont stop but it does, eventually. Its really scary lately. Ive noticed when i do get anxious, my itchy excema is more itchy and i scratch and dont realise im doing it, ive never been this bad, i thought id beaten the anxiety with the meds im on, i guess they are just making it a bit milder.
