Hi All-
 
I was wondering if anyone of you here suffer from depersonalisation. I hope Im using the right term. When I get this it feels like Im not a part of my body or my mind is separate. Is this anxiety?? I have panic attacks alot lately. I was on Paxil for 7 years and weened off of it about 8 months ago. So I've been completely off Paxil for 8 months (after being on it for 7 years it was tough coming off but somehow someway, I did it).
Well, welcome back anxiety...and even worse than when I was originally put on it.
 
I wonder if coming off Paxil could have really messed up my brain chemicals to the point where I suffer from more symptoms of anxiety.
I also get irregular heartbeat- palpitations, fast heartrate, vision disturbances, headaches, neck/back pain, shortness of breath. I've had so many tests done and doctors keep blaming it on anxiety.
 
Any thoughts/ideas/opinions??

would have helped if you learned some relaxation and CBT while on the paxil

if the problems continue, maybe take prozac for a while, its like paxil but easier to quit

many anxiety sufferers are oversensitive to light and nosie, I was

sunglasses and earplugs can help

some are oversensitive to smell
