  1. TW: illness How do you cope with the fear of the unknown? Even if I feel fine, I just have fears of heart attacks, strokes, seizures, etc. occurring and it's so annoying because it ruins my day.
  2. For people taking Lexapro (Escitalopram) what milligram dosage did you notice a difference and how long did it take to start working?
  3. Yep, high blood pressure and tachycardia. But they said it should help my anxiety as well.
  4. Anyone ever taken 60mg extended release propranolol? What's your experience with it? Also I apologize if this was the wrong thread, I thought there was a medication thread but it's not showing up on my phone
  5. Yeah, they tell me it's not anything serious and that is just my body adjusting
  6. I have not just because I take daily vitamins and try to watch what I eat
  7. Idk who can relate but it's so stupid and frustrating how even though I've been told I'm healthy and my heart tests came back with pretty much no problems, besides needing to lose some weight, I still worry about something happening to me. I feel like a ticking time bomb and that I'll get a heart attack, or stroke, etc. I'm so tired of it, I just want to enjoy life.
  8. I know. At least the logical part of me does. It's the what if/illogical part of my brain that sucks. I'm 1 and a half weeks in Lexapro, off Prozac for 2 and a half weeks.
  9. I switched from an old doctor to a young doctor 6 years ago when my anxiety was bad then too and through the years he's always listened thoroughly to my concerns unlike my doctor before him who shrugged things off immediately as anxiety and then when I brought that up to him he called me a hypochondriac. Which I am but it's worth having someone actually listen to your concerns.
  10. Just wondering how many people deal with visual snow and or tinnitus? I see it's way more common in general than I originally thought but was wondering about the link between that and anxiety. Thanks.
  11. My biggest thing is being afraid of dieing before I accomplish all my dreams. I turn 30 next June and I feel like I'm getting so old, my teen years are gone, and soon my 20s will be and I'm overweight actively working on getting healthy, but it's the fact that so many things can happen to a person. And then I made the mistake of reading a reddit forum on people who died and came back that experienced nothing, and that troubles me because I've always believed in heaven and life after.
  12. Does anyone else memory hoard? I'm always scared I'm going to develop dementia or cjd or something so I'm always trying to remember everything. It's exhausting. And lately I keep making mistakes or saying the wrong words but I can't tell if it's just from me hyperfocusing instead of just letting my subconscious act. Like for example if I do something that I routinely do in order I keep messing up the order, or if im trying to interact with something I keep pausing before I do.
  13. Did anyone get shaky hands or restless/jelly legs after starting an ssri?
  14. For a few days I was doing better. My therapist took me off Prozac because it caused major side effects. After a week of being off of it we switched to Lexapro 2 days ago. Now my fears are back again, I keep thinking I have the beginning stages of CJD and idk how to combat this, I feel like I'm playing a waiting game to die and I notice every little symptom. The hands shaking, random leg twitches, I cry around the same time every day it feels like, I keep trying to remember everything I can in fear im losing my mind, I keep grinding my teeth. I keep feeling like I can't swallow and lately it feels like I'm having trouble walking. I'm so scared.
  15. Yeah, I'm in the beginning stages still though. I know it takes time
