My neurogolist put me on lexapro starting today due to my anxiety. I've been going through some issues at home, personal, work, etc. that it got to the point where I was having rages/anger issues.
Anyway, ever since I started the Lexapro, I've had the same joint pain that I experience when I am in a flare up. I feel fine uc wise but just starting experiencing joint pain today! I haven't had this problem in months! I go for my Remicade treatments regularly.
I am also on Klonopin because the doctor wanted to prevent me from going through withdrawal effects from Fioricet, a drug I was on for YEARS. Anyway, could it be that lexapro doesn't agree with me? I just don't feel "right" physically. When I first took it in the morning, i felt like I was in a fog. I had such a hard time teaching for the first half of the day but felt better as the day went on but the join pain is still there.
Any suggestions? I already called the doctor's office and spoke to one of the nurses. She said she will speak to the doctor either tonight or tomorrow. As much as I want my anxiety to be under control, I cannot live with constant joint pain. Its too unbearable. Been there, done that.
Thanks for listening.
