Hi there, I am a 20 year old M, and have recently been diagnosed with anxiety, only problem is I thought that all my irrational thoughts and actions were normal until recently and what i thought was asthma was really panic attacks. I am constantly worried i have severe health issues and frequently feel out of breath. Recently I am always feeling tired , coupled with low blood pressure and have gone from a very confident, sports orientated young man to a shell of what i used to be, over-eating and paranoid. I have recently been prescribed Sertraline 50 mg but have not yet plucked up the courage to take it as i am worried as to its effects and whether it will be dangerous: guess i am just hoping there are others out their that can give me some confidence and clarification because i feel like i am going a bit mad and am very new to all this.
Thanks for your time, take care.
