Hello enufworry...I am glad you have felt comfortable now to post with us! Welcome aboard! I apologize for not greeting you sooner, as I have been away for a few days!
Please don't feel like you are crazy becasue your doctor reffered you to a pdoc. The fact of the matter is that the mind is a powerful thing, and some of what you are feeling might be in your head...not saying you are crazy.
I know this first hand. Back in March, I was having chest pains, constantly, and I was dizzy, and I actually became agoraphobic. I really thought I was dying, but doctors kept telling me I was fine. They sent me to a pdoc, which I was against at first, and I tell you what, it is the best thing I ever did. The problems I was having were indeed physical, because I was feeling pains, but they came from my mind. The stress in my daily life took a hold of me, and made me feel these pains. Your mind can and will do that. It doesnt' mean you are crazy.
I would suggest meeting with a pdoc, and seeing what they have to offer. It could change your life, as it did mine.
Please, stick with us, and tell us how you are doing. And, if you want, go on over to the anxiety board, as you can get so much information there about
anxiety, and panic.
I now take Klonopin twice daily and Effexor XR 150 mg daily, and I am back to the me I was before this all hit me in March.
I do hope you stick with us and keep us updated.
Wishing you all the best!
