Hi guys I'm new to the group. I started experiencing severe anxiety attacks and anxiety 3 months ago after my psychiatry messed with my mood stabilizers. My body is extremely sensitive to medications. But he doesn't believe me. Everyone thinks I'm crazy. I feel like I'm going crazy and it's never gonna stop. Every day I've been experiencing dizziness to the point that it's difficult to walk. diarrhea sometimes vomiting tremors shortness of breath headache none stop. Every little thing sets it off even if my phone is on vibrate or I hear the next door neighbor shutting his door. I can't be around people. In a little over a month I will be losing everything my car my apartment. I was on Adavin it gave me horrible suicidal thoughts. So I discontinued that. I have tried several other Anti anxietymedications my body's too sensitive for all of them I feel hopeless. Has anyone ever experienced this?

I am so sorry. I can relate to severe panic attacks (panic state?) and sensitivity to sounds and being scared of people and all that. I wasn't always like this. It's scary for sure. I am extremely sensitive to medications either. Yes. I was helped with an SSRI for yeas and was doing ok, but had some very difficult years in life and was prescribed Ativan. I don't think I was prescribed it correctly and I don't think it was the right medication for me. Still have to take a small amount of it and feeling worse than ever. I have lost so much myself. I am so sorry you are going through this.

I really appreciate your support. I really don't have any other support. I'm so thankful that I found you guys. I keep praying if I can get this medication leveled out that this will go away.

I really appreciate you being here. I am in dire straits myself and am grateful to find someone in a similar situation.

Hi C.C.. These extreme anxiety episodes create suffering that is hard to imagine. I've only gone through it once and missed two months of work. I wish I knew of some secret elixir that could alleviate the distress or even what I did to finally make it out of my episode. The anxiety just slowly allowed me to recover some sense of functionality. I sincerely hope that both of you can hold it together until things ease up. C.C., please be open to the possibility that your extreme anxiety could be the cause of at least some of your physical symptoms.
