I know without a doubt this has caused my anxiety and panic disorder. I get extremely nervous all the time for fear of having an attack. I get scared to go anywhere. It's dibilating and I'm to the point i feel like I'm going insane. I had an attack Sunday and then on Wednesday just leaning my head to the side. I go to the dr I can't even have my bp taken because of the sound and pressure on my arm. I'm depressed and I'm isolated. I don't go anywhere unless necessary and when I do it's not good. Has anyone had any luck with an antidepressant to help? Am I the only one who feels like their going crazy with this disease? I have constant ringing in my right ear sometimes my left but it doesn't last long. Please any suggestions?
I have, at first I took Zoloft, but that didn't work so then I resorted to Effexor, then I decided that that wasn't for me. My doctor wanted me calmed down so I began a regimen of Clonopin .5 mg 3 times a day and Valerian root that is combined with Hops along with my Valium, 2 mgs. 2 times a day and started reading my Bible and praying a lot. I found that when I turned it over to the Lord along with some mild drugs to help me along I began to get a grip on my life, or rather The Lord took over in my life. I still suffer from the meiners severely at times, when I do I just add some Valerian and a little Phenergran and I am okay.
Hi Ashton Chuck here we have talked about this several times i think its time for you to write all your symptoms down and take them to the doctor it is the doctor that is going to have to figure what to put you on and it can take awhile as you know for the right combo or meds to give you relief you need and yes many of the symptoms you have no matter where they are coming from you have to work with the doctor to get them under control and they can be with patients..my dear..your going to have to get serious with the doctor. keep that chin up and keep plugging believe me i know how hard it is..but get to the doctor..and start working on it chuck1957
I sincerely believe the " anticipation " of an attack is as bad as, if not worse than an attack. The anticipation is constant and almost never ending. I haven't had a SERVERE attack in 18 months (due to medications), but I still think about it constantly! Never taken antidepressants, but the key is finding a doctor and staff who truely care. Dr Fred Owens in Dallas, Texas is a lifesaver!
