  1. I’ve been checking my BP twice a day (mornings and evenings) since Tuesday and it’s constantly 103/75 range the highest it’s been is 125/84 so I don’t even know if the beta blocker will make it too low. My BP is always high at the doctors and normal at home. Also, my labs came back and all was normal except my cholesterol levels were a little high and my liver enzymes were 65 abs they should be below 50 so that concerned me. My doctor things it’s diet related
  2. I just went for my yearly checkup/blood work and of course I’ve been anxious for a few days for this appointment and I’m anxious now waiting for the lab results. But while I was there they checked my BP and if was 155/111 the first time abs 142/92 the next time and not I’m freaking out about that. My doctor has prescribed me and recommended I get on a beta blocker I forgot the name but it’s 50mg and slow release. The name starts with the letter M and now idk if I wanna be in another medication (I’m already on lexapro 10mg) I’m super stressed now waiting for the results and about the high BP reading

    BP high ?

    Thank you all. Today, I felt my heart like skip beats/beat weird as if my heart was trying to come up into my throat. It’s pretty scary. I just sat down. Anybody have this issue before?

    Does anyone here take proponolol 10MG as needed? My therapist said that it’s such a low does that I can take it when needed instead of daily but I’m anxious about doing that.
  7. Got Pfizer and the shot didn’t hurt at all but my arm is sore and o feel fatigued. I took a couple of Tylenol’s
  8. I’m scheduled for my first covid vaccine today (I’m 37 years old) and I’m super nervous. My anxiety is in over drive. Anybody here gotten it yet?
  9. A few years ago I had bad anxiety. I had a rapid heartbeat chest pain‘s and shortness of breath. This was in 2015. I ended up in the ER and went to many doctors including a cardiologist. All test came back normal and I was told I had anxiety then I started seeing a therapist and I started on medication and I started to feel better but as of January 2021 I’m back to having shortness of breath along with chest pain in rapid heartbeat I got off the medication in December 2020 and now I’m back on the medication and I’ve been back on the medication for one month but the shortness of breath has been consistent for the past month and a half and I’m starting to freak out again thinking what if it’s my heart this time and what if I’m really sick. Some days the shortness of breath are is worse than others. Today being one of the worst days. I couldn’t even complete a sentence without having to catch my breath I’ve been laying in bed all day ever since and I’ve had shortness of breath every time I try to get up or chest pain. I’m really starting to freak out and think what if it’s my heart this time. I spoke to a friend of mine who’s a doctor a couple weeks ago and told him and he said it’s just your anxiety and give the medicine time to kick back into your system but it’s been one month since I’ve been back on the medicine and the shortness of breath has been totally get it get worse. Are there any in here who have had similar symptoms for so long? Sometimes it helps to hear others experiences to know you’re not alone or to know that you’re not going crazy or not you’re not sick and about to have a stroke or heart attack

    I started lexapro 10MG in December of 2019 and was on it until December of 2020. Then I got off and started getting these symptoms I described above and my therapist put me back on lexapro 10 mg about 3 weeks ago. The first time it took 4-6 weeks to work. I figured this time it would work in a shorter time since I was already on it for a year and only got off for one month.

    But is it normal to have these symptoms 24-7?

    For the last 3 weeks I’ve had shortness of breath and lately I’ve had chest pain and I’m worried that I’m gonna have a heart attack or stroke or that I’m having silent heart attacks. My therapist put me back on lexapro 2 weeks ago after I weened off 2 months ago but it’s been 2 weeks and I’m still having shortness of breath so what if it’s not anxiety this time- what if my body is telling me something. I had shortness of breath and heart fears 5 years ago before I was put on meds and at the time I was in and out of the ER and going from doctor to doctor and saw a cardiologist and everything came back normal at the time. But what if this time it’s different. Shortness of breath, plus chest pains, rapid heart beat constantly anybody deal with these issues constantly? I need advice or someone to reassure me 😞
  13. My doctor actually told me not to stop them due to my job being stressful, covid, etc. but I insisted and we stopped them but my anxiety is back now even though the first off of the meds I was doing fine
  14. I stopped my lexapro 10 mg back in December after speaking with my doctor but for the past week I’ve as shortness of breath and today I had tight chest pains and I’ve had the knot feeling in my stomach a lot so today my theorist recommended I got back on the meds 😕
  15. My anxiety is “walking in a dark ally worried” but feeling like that 24-7. When I was on the medication I didn’t feel that anxious feeling I didn’t feel anything. Now I feel that pit in my stomach
