Hi mates!
It has been long time I haven't been in to this forum because of work and a good long time of symptom free from my anxiety, I'm taking 25mg zoloft which helped me since i tappared it from 50mg before a year, last night I went to bed and wanted to get a deep sleep, I ve gott a 2,5mg diazepam and then gott a nice deep sleep till 10 ocklock at the morning, When i woke up it was every thing normal and nice, but when tried to get up and stand up got a sever dizziness with lightheaded and sever nausea, I stayed for a while in the bed and couldn't gott up, then gott my zoloft to 50 mg back with 5 mg diazepam , then felt a little bit better, but still  nauseating and lightheaded. I had about a year of symptom free from anxiety. My question is it anxiety again? any body else have gott the same experience?I'm a little more worry because every time I gott anxiety, it disappeared just with 2,5mg diazepam sublingually, but this time it didn't disappear even with 5mg.

Angest, welcome back, it's so nice to hear that things have been going well for you. Is it possible that this dizziness is from an illness like flu or do you feel that it is the anxiety returning? I know that being unwell can really knock me around anxiety wise and if this is the case, be gentle with yourself, a fever can re-produce anxiety and make you feel overwhelmed big time.  If you think it's just the anxiety then remeember that recovery is a process of baby steps, some days it can come back and then bam! It's gone again. 

I don't want to give medical advice, but if you need the valium maybe talk about changing the dose with your doc for the time being until this passes.  I hope you are feeling better soon and that this is just a minor blip for you.  Keep us posted okay?

Hi there angest..How about making an appt to see your doctor for a check up - to ease your mind if nothing else - once you know what's going on you can deal with whatever it is and move on with your life and not have that horrible feeling of 'worry' in the back of your mind.

Great input from Meg :-)

Hi Angest,
I agree with both Jordan and Meg, maybe it's time to see the doc and make sure there is nothing medically going on with you that may be causing these symptoms.  If there isn't anything medically going on, then talk about the dosages of the meds you are on - maybe they need to be changed for the time being.
I hope you feel better soon and keep us posted as to how you are doing.  Glad to see you back here.
Take care,
