    Zoloft question.

    @Leah1976 thank you for your response. @Iugrad91 thanks for your responses as well. Especially giving me some factual info. I’ve been on it before but it’s been over a decade and I didn’t remember it happening so quick.

    Zoloft question.

    Hi guys. So yesterday I talked to a psychiatrist and he prescribed me Zoloft, which I was on years ago. I’m happy to be back on it. My question is I know they can cause nausea and other gi symptoms but can they happen the first day you take it? I took it at about 11am and now it’s almost 5pm my stomach is really blah. Could it just be that I haven’t eaten anything yet today? Doesn’t feel like the hunger kinda of blah feeling.

    Sensory Sensitivities

    That sounds like a migraine to me. My husband gets them and they suck. He usually just has to sleep it off and takes Excedrin for them, though they have caffeine in it so if you’re sensitive to that may need something else. I do know they can last a few days too. Hope you feel better soon.

    Need some advice.

    Thank you @bin_tenn, it’s just hard to know that he could still be “suffering” and not wanting to do anything about it because he A. doesn’t think it’s a big deal or B. Scared it will be.

    Need some advice.

    Hi all, I need some advice. A few days ago I posted about my husband having blood work done to check for anemia. The test says yes to it. We talked to a Dr who recommended some more lab work to check his iron levels and get a colonoscopy, but he didn’t seem overly worried (at least how I felt from him) about it since my husbands symptoms had gone. We’ve been dealing with our dog having surgery today, he’s fine but is very upset about the cone he has to wear. And tonight I asked him what he gonna to do about his situation. He says “just play it by ear” this after I noticed a bruise on his side, which is an anemia sign. So my question is what do I do? Do I keep bothering him about it? Set up an appointment for him? Just let him deal with it since he says “he knows his body”? How do I handle it and not let my own health anxiety issues dominate?

    Trying not to panic *Update 4*

    Thank you @Holls while they didn’t seem overly concerned and he’s feeling better I’m still very worried. All of his issues and our dog having a very minor/short surgery tomorrow and I just want to implode.

    Trying not to panic *Update 4*

    So we got the results back and it does show anemia. The numbers aren’t that crazy bad but still. There was one number the MCV number that is in a range that I’m worried about. We tried to do a virtual Dr visit just to understand the results and she called it a name and then I made the mistake of of googling searching it and came to a site that have all kinda scary info. So we did another visit because the first one wasn’t working right and the Dr said it shows anemia but that we don’t need to panic. He suggest that my husband see someone in the near future but isn’t that worried since his symptoms have stopped. I however am in panic freak out mode. No sleep tonight!

    Trying not to panic *Update 4*

    *Update 3* There is no update! It’s been a week and nothing. And since we did this through a virtual visit app it’s much harder to get the dr. But I think I found his work phone number and left a message for him. His symptoms have all gone which is good. But we want to know. Add this to the anxiety I’m feeling about my dogs minor surgery Tuesday and I’m like 2 strawas away from braking the camels back.

    Anemia

    @Bella P Thank you. Hearing from several people that it’s not that bad is reassuring. But the “what if” are coming in now and I’m trying to ignore them. He FINALLY took a migraine pill and his headache is gone, which I’ve been telling him to do since yesterday.

    Thank you @Bella P. Drs think my husband my be and may have possible gi tract bleeding. Trying to stay strong but I’m very worried.

    Trying not to panic *Update 4*

    *Update* We did another virtual Dr consult this time with a Dr I’ve gone to when I’m freaking out over nothing, since we don’t not have a Dr. He said it sounds like gi tract bleeding and ordered some blood work done. He didn’t seem to worried , just like the other Dr. he said if it is bleeding it’s just some medication and time and he’ll be fine. He’s handeling it fine. He’s gonna go and do it tomorrow during work, which sucks because I feel like I should be there. As for me, I’m handeling it ok. Outside I’m projecting that I’m fine. Inside I have moments where I panic but it surprsisingly has been ok. Here’s hoping for the best.
