It started January 1 of this year. I hadn't had a panic attack in a very long time. I was eating something and out of no where my good old friend showed its ugly head again.
Since then I've pretty much had every test done you can have(health anxiety) and of course they all are negative and every doctor I've seen including my GP says I'm healthy.
I'm on effexor generic and since Jan 1 I've went from 75mg to 225mg.
In the last 3 weeks The meds kicked in and I was doing really well, little or no anxiety, symptoms ect
2 mornings ago I had thought I lost my phone and I ended up having another attack. Since then I'm back to being paranoid about my health, I have no appetite, I can't sleep a full night and all I want to do is stay home. My brain tells me that the simplest things like doing the dishes could turn catostrophic.
Does any one else have this problem?
My GP says it will go away and to stay on my meds. Its very scary.
