First of all i'd like to say that i've had no history of depression, panic attacks or anxiety attacks, other then slight anxiety in public places.

Back of my head numb, feeling of a slight anxiety attack and at times have hard time breathing. Sensation is making me depressed. Also cannot stop obsessing about what is going on with me. Have slight fear of dieing.

about 2 months i was places on clonazpam for social anxiety at .5 ml a day twice a day.. Was on it for 3 weeks until i decided to get off due to if effecting my memory. Last dose was at .125 ml which i was on for about a week. Though out that week i experienced pretty bad withdrawals symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks. Eventually got over it and was fine.

Been feeling like this for exactly 5 days now, it seems to go in waves. It appears to be that the sensation increases when im up and about but is better when i am relaxing on the couch. Im guessing it might be some post traumatic stress or even and on going anxiety. Alcohol appears to slightly help subdue the feeling and so does a dose of tension headache medicine. Overall i feel fine with no memory problems and any strange side-effects. The feeling does effect my concentration though. Had to leave work early on Friday cause i could not focus.

Mind once again i've never had panic attacks, severe anxiety or derpression prior to being placed on Clo****pam. I was on paxil and celexa for about 2 days each and had bad reaction so it was discontinued.

Anybody know that is wrong with me? Any input is much appreciated.

Ps. I went into ER yesterday. Doc checked me out, said my nervous system coordination is ok, blood pressure and pulse is all normal. Also had a CAT scan and everything came back normal. He just gave me an anxiety panthlet and sent me on my way. Really did not give me any answers or solutions.

Dave I had to delete your post for the same reason. Thank you for your words of concern and advice, but we cannot discuss this on the forum.
