Well I was sitting here
(thank goodness) at work on this very same PC using the phone right next to me and all of a sudden I felt like my glasses were drawing closer to my face then I saw a couple black 'spots' flollowed by about
1-2 seconds of blackness while I still remained on the telephone somehow. I tried to just get past it as part of my Cymbalta titration or not eating enough for breakfast but it just worried me non-stop for about
the next hour and I finally drove myself to the ER where the did a CT scan, bloodwork and an EKG all of which returned as normal which is a good and bad thing....good in the obvious sense of not having something prominantly/severely wrong and bad in the sense that they really have no idea why it happened.
I will gladly give the hospital major kudos for being very nice, professional and thourough....a bit slow but I can deal with that if I get the rest and for most of all not treating me like just some typical 'crazy/nutcase' after I told them about my panic disorder but I was calm and nicely told them I was not having an episode as far as I knew and this was different than anything I'd ever experienced. The fact that they never brought up my panic disorder the entire time I was there made me feel like a 'real patient' and not just some person with a nervous condition, which is what you'd normally get.
Well, so far so good today & I think it was a change in my breakfast pattern(started dieting yesterday
) yesterday morning along with the withdrawl symptons/affects of being off of Cymbalta completely for 8 days today.
