  1. Something is Wrong...

    Here is my Thyroid panel from a year ago when I went through withdrawals. I did this just to make sure I was okay. But can a Thyroid issue pop up over a year?
  2. Something is Wrong...

    Hey everyone! For the past few months I have felt completely drained emotionally and physically. Every day I am tired. Recently I went through Hurricane Irma and went through a horrific "panic attack" where every muscle in my abdomen and body tensed up to the point I nearly collapsed and vomited at the same time! Since then things have seemed to be slowly getting worse. I feel tired all the time, and my stomach/abdominal muscles always feel like they're spasming or tensing. My girlfriend believes this could be "Adrenal Fatigue" or even an issue with my gallbladder....but after going through major withdrawals off of Zoloft in 2016 (I took Zoloft for 11 years since I was 11 years old and it just "stopped" working one night) with the same feelings, this is freaking me out now. Ive had stabbing pains in my right side occasionally and I immediately think I have sepsis, a parasite, infection, etc. My body temperature has even been low around 96.2-95.9 which is REALLY scaring me. (My body temp has always been low though normally around 97.4). I don't know what to do as my parents see me as just "crying wolf" or freaking out...which to be honest I am freaking out BECAUSE of this. Any advice would be great as I am very very scared right now. D':
  3. I'm In Irma

    Thank you guys the storm has passed me. I still feel like I've been shot up with loads of adrenaline though. My stomach still feels tight. We have no power but have a generator. I'm at my friends home actually so I'm not just scared them to see me literally freaking out and shivering because of fear. I've lived in Florida all my life and my parents are native. But we have never seen a storm like this. The evacuation failed because of the amount of people on the road. And sadly the entire state has been impacted. But thank you guys. I hope tonight with less winds I can sleep and be less tense, but we will see. Just a random question...what if I was having a seizure? Or I became somewhat hypothermic in my sleep?
  4. I'm In Irma

    Hey everyone! Currently I am laying in the guest bedroom of my girlfriends in Pompano Beach, FL. If any of you know there is a category 4 hurricane going over us right now....I am panicking to the extreme. Last night I woke up to the scary wind sounds and completely tensed up to the point I became cold, and couldn't even walk. My muscles all over my body basically seized....Today I have been freaking out hoping that doesn't happen again. I have Klonopin with me and my medication Luvox. Plenty of supplies. But I cannot relax to save my life. I am literally scared for my life right now. Any advice? D':
  5. For the past few weeks I have felt very strange. Bowel movements have been painful, and bloating in my stomach is bad. Along with these symptoms, Lights have seemed to be brighter, I haven't been sleeping really much at all, and I've been getting headaches off and on. Now for the past week (on top of the previous symptoms) I have been very bad. I have been sweating more than usual, extremely fatigued to where I don't want to get out of bed, my depression and panic is horrible, and my body temperature is very low....(waking up with it being 95.8) I am freaking out that maybe my medications have stopped working? Or there is a very serious issue going on here? I have had a Thyroid test done(in attachment) about a year ago when I went through a living nightmare of withdrawing off of my Zoloft of 10 years... I'm really freaking out tonight with a bad headache. ),:
  6. Earl Grey Tea

    I'm sort of freaking out from something really stupid....but I take "Luvox" an SSRI that interacts more than any other antidepressant. I drank some Earl Grey Tea this morning with cream and honey. I was reading about Earl Grey teas and how they use grapefruit as flavoring for the tea....which grapefruit is a HUGE no-no for people with antidepressants. Should I be worried? Or stop drinking earl grey? Am I going to get Serotonin syndrome? ):
  7. Panicking!

    For the past couple of weeks I have had these feelings of "agitation" or have felt irritable. I also have not been sleeping well. I saw my doctor 2 weeks ago who told me to increase my Luvox to 150mg. I increased it last night to 125mg. I'm freaking out that I may be bipolar or having serotonin syndrome??? Please any feedback would be great. I have Klonopin which I've managed to get down to taking .5mg a day. (I cut in half to take twice a day). But something just doesn't seem right D':
  8. Forgetfulness/Out of It

    For the past few weeks now I have felt completely disconnected. I have been getting sleep, but waking up feeling exhausted. Also, I could answer a phone call, hang up, and not even remember who I just talked to. None of my meds have changed. I do feel stressed....but this is freaking me out. I've been sweating more than usual. Occasionally get brain zaps...which is really weird. I'm really afraid that my meds aren't working anymore. My doctor told me to increase my Luvox to 150mg now )':
  9. Orthostatic Hypotension

    So for those of you who have never heard of the thread's basically the effect you get when you stand up and get lightheaded, feel pressure, or see bright lights for a brief moment due to the sudden drop in your blood pressure. The last 2 weeks have been scaring me because I have been having this happen to me very often. Almost every time I get up from laying or sitting. I am 22 years old and my heart is supposubly healthy (had 2 ekg's in 2016). But recently I have been feeling tired and this effect has been taking place with me. Just wondering what I should do to solve this? I am really freaking out about heart failure or some other cardiovascular issue. :'/
  10. Instant Withdrawal?

    So last year I went through horrific withdrawals after taking Zoloft for 9 years....I finally found the right med for me (Luvox), but I can't remember if I took it tonight or not! I'm on a dose of 200mg so taking another 100mg would make me pretty sick...on the opposite side If I didnt take it....I don't know how I'm going to feel in the morning! Am I going to be completely out of it and manic or schizzo? (I'm not schizzo just a HUGE fear of mine). I am laying in bed bogging down trying to remember. I don't know what to do as I haven't missed a dose before...ever....D:
  11. Vybrid

    I know this is a late reply...but when I first came off of Zoloft after 10 years (it worked well for me! Haha) the first med I went to was Viibryd. I too had the same issues you are. I barely slept, and felt somewhat jittery. After a month my blood pressure was lowering really low so I had to come off of it. It's supposedly becoming a very popular antidepressant, but it doesn't work for all. Like Prozac. Some people it saves their life, others are dopey and walking into walls (yes that was I would mention any of these concerns to your doctor though
  12. Luvox and Cymbalta

    Hey everyone! After a horrific 2016 of withdrawing off of Zoloft of 10 years I finally settled down onto Luvox which has helped me greatly. However, the past month I have been becoming very very very depressed and crying about almost everything! My doctor prescribed me to take 30mg Cymbalta along with my 200mg Luvox. I also take Klonopin .5 x1 time per day. I am REALLY afraid about this. In fact my fears are almost all health related. I've read about Seretonin syndrome by mixing more than one antidepressant at a time?? Also this is the first SNRI (Cymbalta) I've ever taken...I loved on Zoloft for 10 years which worked amazing. I'm just really afraid and could use some insight into this. I'm only 22, and this is really a tough road and battle for me. The past week I've cried everyday...
  13. Heart Failure?

    Hey everyone! I'm 22 years old and recently have been feeling very VERY stressed. My girlfriend who is a paramedic took my blood pressure 3 days ago which read 160 over 83. This was taken at night. Tonight as I lay in bed with her stethoscope (bad idea!), I've listened to my heart which has caused me some fear....instead of a normal "Lub-dub Lub-dub" sound, it gallops like "Lub-dubDub Lub-dubDub". A quick faint sound right before the closing "dub". So here I am at 1am in the morning googling for possibilities and the term that matches that heart beat is heart failure! This is really scaring me as I've been really fatigued and winded for the past 2 months it seems. Also yesterday I had cold sweat, chills, and a radiating pain in my left shoulder/chest/back. Someone help me me sleep tonight. ),:
  14. Crippling Fear

    For the past 3 months I have been under an enormous amount of stress. The previous year I had lost 8 family members, and my medication for anxiety/panic/depression "pooped out" and sent me into a cold turkey withdrawal. These past 3 months I have been thinking that I am never going to be the same person I was, and that I'm becoming Schizophrenic or Bipolar. I am on Luvox (SSRI prescribed for Anxiety, OCD, and Depression; but mostly OCD) currently which has helped me live a normal life again, but I still have these crippling fears of going to a mental hospital, becoming so drugged and disconnected with reality that I am unable to love those around me, and become forever entrapped in my mind. I have so many fears about EVERYTHING it seems to be almost a paranoia. I want to cry sometimes because I have no idea of my future. I have been taking Klonopin since the withdrawal last year...and have currently cut down to .5mg per day. I was taking 1mg about a week ago. Can coming off of Klonopin make you feel irritated and twitchy/paranoid? (Goes back to the schizophrenia/psychosis fears). I am seeing a counselor and a psychiatrist, but I just feel.....lost.
  15. I am 22 years old and suffer from Panic Disorder with OCD and Depression. I have been taking Luvox for about 6 months now after a year of withdrawing from Zoloft. To be honest I'm not the same person I was....but In time I guess I will re adjust. I'm posting here about this new job I have acquired at a zoo/avian/butterfly place called Butterfly World as an Aviculturist. I have to say it is the most amazing job I have had and I Love it. Working with all of the bird's is so much fun. However, since starting this job I have not been getting quality sleep AT ALL. I constantly feel depersonalization, and even had a couple of panic attacks return! I'm worried about everything (the OCD) and am just falling apart now in everything! ): Any advice on What I can do to get good rest? To be honest I think that's a quarter of my battle right there....
