I have been on Paxil for 6 months and lost my insurance. So I was without Paxil for 4 days. Doctor sent me in a script and i started back up because I was having mental breakdowns. Within that time i have been having severe chest pains during sex, crying out burst s, feel nauseated and weak. So last night the strangest thing happen. I was calm watching Netflix and all of a sudden my ears felt like popping. Like they where underwater. It was painful and pressure like in the ears. Then it went to the back of my throat and tongue. It was painful and had a shocking/tingly sensation. I couldn't breath and was hard to swallow. This scared me so bad, i went to er. They discharge me and now I'm in fear it will happen again and i might faint or die. I dont know if its Paxil, my heart, my lungs. I dont know but I am so scared.
Help me! If anyone knows where and what these symptoms could be?

Left ear after it happened hurt to touch. Also had hard time breathing. Doctor did EKG and Xray on chest. Everything was good. No blood work, didn't check my ears. Also i dont know of this helps my right side front of mouth is numb/tingle because of oral surgery from a year ago. I am just looking for answers. If anyone had this sensation in their ears/mouth/throat and chest at same time would know what i am talking about. Its hard to explain but so terrifying!
Candace; yes everyone complains when it comes to even missing one pill and you missed 4 not a good thing because you go into withdrawals right away.plus many people due to the withdrawal start to panic and overreact. Please just make sure you keep taking your medication and this shows you that you sure don't want to miss any again.If your still having problems Monday you may call your doctor or the nurse but you will be just fine. good luck now
