Hi all, been suffering on and off for 3 years but over the past few months the intensity has just gotten out of control. It is purely the physical symptoms that are causing me alarm, had heart etc checked out (ended up in A and E a few times with chest pain as i am sure many of us have) and am, according to my doctors anyway, in rude health. Im sure they will be familiar to you all, chest pains, feeling i cant get a breath, vivid dreams, pains and cold sensations in my arms, aches in my back, general lethargy etc. the issue is the feeling of deterioration every day, i literally feel worse every day, even though i convince myself i cant get any worse, only to get worse the next day. I am only on quetiapine at the minute, relatively low dose of 50mg a day, I have came off propanolol at the start of the week as it was lowering my blood pressure, and came off fluexetine midweek as it caused me to have suicidal thoughts. naturally this isnt helping my body generally but i feel myself gradually losing control, unable to do even the most basic things. from even barely functioning a few weeks ago i now seem to be turning into a trademark socially anxious person, retreating more and more into my room. I have had discussions about thought processes etc, but can anyone recommend a way to try and minimise these thoughts.i am in a cycle of being pretty much convinced i am dying. last week a tried to power through, meaning trying to completely ignore the symptoms and do everything i normally do, to no avail. another issue is that i seemingly cant see properly, is that another symptom you have experienced?
