Very Anxious with insomniaHi all. I'm new to this and have decided to give it a try.
In February of last yr I started having sleeping issues. I would lay down very tired and my mind would just race about everything and anything. I would close my eyes and try to sleep but found myself taking advil pm or benadryl to get to sleep. I also noticed in the afternoons I would feel sick to my stomach. After a couple months of not sleeping well things turned into full anxiety. I had a few panic attacts. Terrible headaches, tmj, tension in my upper back and shoulders. I felt so nervous and panicy all the time. It would start in my stomach them I would feel like a tingling I'm my chest and arms I just didn't feel right. Since my parents had anxiety/depression I figured I did too. I checked into a mental health facility and was put on paxil. I had tried zoloft and several others. I have seemed to mellow out but no longer feel like my old self. I used to be highly active. I had lost 130lbs had a tummy tuck and loved life. Now I have gained 40lbs in 5 months have no desire for sex or anything really. I just want to get off these pills and be able to sleep at night and enjoy being my old confidant horney self LOL. Any suggestions? This is all new to me. I thank you.

sick to my stomach every evening on my drive home from work
not sleeping well
seemed like i was fighting to go to sleep regardless of how tired i was
would lay there with my eyes closed and i just couldnt get to sleep or i would fall asleep only to wake up 2 hrsw later. my mind would race with thoughts in general. things regarding the present day past or future.
i then started to during the day feel sick to my stomach or like there were butterflies in it. then it would tingle up my chest and into my arms. i would have headaches that would start above my eyes and wrap around my temples down to the back of my neck. it was a dull ache. i would be dizzy and shakey and just feel like i was going crazy. i also on a few occasions woke up in the night panicing. my heart would race i would gasp for air and my chest would feel tingliey and burning. i would take xanax or ativan and it would relax me. i also started having pain in my lower back right at my tailbone. sharp almost to the point i couldnt sit. it has now moved to my sacroiliac joint and around to the front of my hip. it hurts worse when trying to work out (elliptical which i used to do an hr a day) feels like my hip needs to pop. it swells up and gets warm. its a burning type pain. i also feel forgetful. lose my thought when talking. if i put something down i have a hard time finding it again.
symptoms now that im on meds and trying to come off them.....much of the same as already stated
not feeling like myself. i dont really care to much about anything. i am short tempered and easily excitable. the pain in my back is still the same as above. i have headaches but not as many and they seem to be behind my eyes now. i see little black flecks in my vision from time to time which i had before also. i feel dizzy and sometime like my head is in a fog. i forget things even simple things. sometimes when im talking i lose track of what i was going to say or cant find the word i want to say. i got almost completely off one of my meds but started with insomnia again and my dr put me back on it. i dream a lot. not nightmares but dreams that i usually remember in the morning but then forget. i feel off balence when walking sometimes or lightheaded. feel very spacy. my body feels very fat and puffy i feel like im retaining water. i want to have the desire to workout but i dont have the desire for much and the pain in my hip after doesnt make it worth it. i remember how i used to feel after a 2hr session at the gym covered in sweat i loved it. i am not feeling sexual not horney at all.
all these symptoms have been going on since about march or april of this year.
not a diabetic
love sweets and carbs, bread, cakes candy diet soda. never used to be that way tho i did always love bread
always thirsty and feel dry
tounge is usually dry and sometimes my mouth tastes bad like bad breath
i feel like i did a pretty good explanation already of what is happening
currently i feel blah. not great not bad just here
i feel like it has greatly affected me. im tired during the day i dont workout anymore i dont want sex anymore i dont look at men like i used to. i was once very vibrant horney and lived for the gym. i loved being sexy and feeling sexy now i dont feel anything.
what comes to my mind is that i want to be off these drugs and feel normal again. i remeber how i used to feel and the zest i had for life.
my fathers death had a big inpact on me when i was 20. he was my hero and the best person i know. i felt very sad. not the way i feel now just sad and lost like i didnt have anyone anymore.
i am talking with my hands. putting them in front of my breasts as i talk. i tend to pick at my fingers or cuticals i should say while i am being spoken to.
currently i take paxil10mg doxepin 10mg and klonopin .05mg
my father struggled with depression/anxiety for as long as i can remember. i used to watch him swallow a handful of pills a day. my mother always cheated on him so im sure that didnt help things. once he got divorced and met someone new things for him changed. he was happy and enjoyed life. only 5 yrs later was told he only had 6 months to live. he had a disease i can not put on here that begins with a c and died at 41 years old. i guess thinking about it i have the same fear that i will die young as he did.
i graduated high school and did some college only to drop out bevause i couldnt afford to keep going.
i am a specimen processor
i sit in front of a computer most of the day doing data entry
it seems now i like all food. i want to eat all the time. carbs candy cake the stuff thats making me fat.
im not sure if any of this food worsens my problem
i am short tempered and easily irritated. i have no patience and always tend to hurry. i am a person who speeds on the road and have multiple speeding tickets.
i love my son with all that i am. i couldnt imagine my life without him. i believe i have found the one with my boyfriend. hes the best
my pain in my back seems to be the best after my period and worst the week prior and the week of my period.
its only left sided. sacoiliac region as well as the side and front of hip bone. the bone in the front that sticks out is what sometimes gets swollen
monthy cycles are normal
urine normal color as long as i drink enough water. stool not going everyday but usually a chocolate brown color
hope this is helpful. it was done to the best of my ability.
thanks for any and all help and guidence
