Long time reader, occasional poster. 35/M, GAD 20mg lexapro daily. This is the first time in a long time that I’ve hit the point where I need to post.
This past Friday I had a fall, long story short I ended up with a concussion. I woke up in the hospital and was released just a little bit later. They ran tests, CT, spine X-ray, etc. They said I’m good and sent me on my way. I have an appointment this Saturday with my doctor as a follow up.
But of course, I did some unnecessary reading and now I’m freaking out that I may not be fine and could just suddenly die. I feel like I’m getter better. No headaches or anything just kind of blah I guess. Never fails though. I read that oh you might be fine after and this is the “lucid” stage and could just suddenly hemorrhage.
I’m certainly not looking for medical advice, again I have a follow up soon. It’s lose/lose though. I’m worried cause it’s still days away and even then I’m sure they’ll want to send me for tests and who knows when that’ll be or when I’ll get results. On the other hand, even if I get the OK I’m now just going to feel like a ticking time bomb. My own stupid fault for jumping on google. Wasn’t going to and have been really good about not doing it, this was one of my issues that I take lexapro for - overthinking and obsessing over these kind of things. This sucks man.
Thanks for taking a read. Just needed to get that of my chest cause it’s consuming me.
