I've also taken Lexapro in the past, as has my son and neither one of us experienced any side effects so I can't help you much there. As Kitt said, maybe others will be along who can help you.
I can understand your frustration with doctors, I went through many, many years of problems and being told "I don't know what to tell you" after having many procedures done. Finally, I changed to a different PCP and was then diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, which explains many of the problems and symptoms I have experienced over the years. It was nice to FINALLY have a diagnosis and to know that it WASN'T all in my head.
Anxiety and panic can play some mean tricks on the body so this may be some of the problem, but it doesn't sound like it's all of the problem (I'm NOT a medical professional in any way - that's just my honest opinion). I guess one of my questions would be is how and why did they give you those other diagnoses if it was all in your head. Obviously, there are physical problems that you have and those have been discovered and diagnosed. Have you talked with your PCP about any of these things and how they may affect you - i.e. the temperature differences you are experiencing?
I hope you are able to find some answers soon. Please keep posting and let us know how you are doing.
