Hi. I am new to this forum. Thanks in advance for this great service.
I have been suffering from some strange symptoms:
1. Dry mouth (especially in the night during sleep)
2. Burning tongue
3. Mild migratory pain in groin and armpits
4. Frequent bowel movements (not diarrhea)
It has not been easy to come up with a diagnosis. After several blood tests, my primary care physician has concluded that this is all only a physical manifestation of the extreme anxiety and stress related to an episode that took place in my life a couple of months ago. Therefore, the PCP has prescribed Zoloft hoping that that would make me feel better and make my strange symptoms go away.
I am a bit hesitant to get started on this medicine (maybe due to the possible side effects). If anyone here could say that this appears to be the right approach, that will make me feel better about getting started on Zoloft.
If anyone has any insight/advise/experience I would appreciate it.
