Definitely go see a PDoc. My well-meaning GP diagnosed me with depression and GAD and put me on meds that only made me worse. Please see a PDoc, they will be able to more finely tune in to what is actually going on with you and give you the appropriate meds to help you help yourself feel better.
Good luck and do not be too hard on yourself in the meantime. All will be well, don't give up!
PDoc is a pschyatrist. Sorry, I did not realize you were already seeing someone when I posted previously. If you have been seeing this Dr. for a while and are not getting better or he is not helping you sleep via meds and you are really frustrated, go for a second opinion. Maybe you and your Dr. are just not clicking or maybe your Dr. is on the right track, it is just going to take time. Whatever the reason, I hope you find sleep and some serenity some.
I know what you mean Mike. I guess some improvement is better than none. I do have GAD on top of Bipolar Disorder I. I remember having chest pains and shortness of breath really bad with my anxiety, and it would happen out of no where, nothin bad or stressfull going on. Fortunately, my BP med has helped so much with my anxiety, that I hardly have those problems anymore and so glad for it. Yes, give it some time, some Dr's are more aggressive in treatment than others.
I hope the rest of your day is as good as can be.
