Hello all. I' going through a lil bit of a rough patch and was hoping to get some feedback. I'm currently taking 150 mg of Zoloft and 3.75 mg of Chlorazapate before bed. I was recently sick with the flu and off of work for a week and a half due to my illness. I actually did very well at keeping my anxiety at bay throughout my ordeal. ( I usually know when I'm going to get sick because my anxiety spikes a few days before). I did have that initial warning sign of anxiety, but I knew I was feeling ill so I managed to keep it under control by reminding myself that I was sick and not going thru an anxious episode.
Fast forward to this past Monday I returned to work and was ehh ok. However, I've been experiencing profuse sweating , hot flushes and jittery feelings since Wednesday. I should add I do still have a nasty cough and am still quite fatigued so I'm not sure if that's the culprit. I also began my cycle 2 weeks early whilst being sick ( sorry TMI).
I actually had to take a benzo yesterday during the day, which i never do, but because I was shaking so bad I didn't want it to escalate into a panic attack.
So.. My dilemma is.. Should I consider this a rough patch and the possibility that my body is still healing from being sick and just try to ride it out? Or call my doc and consider a possible med increase in order to be proactive?
I'm really just trying to make sense of it all and I guess chalk it all up to being sick and hope it will pass. It's just odd that I didn't experience this while I was sick as I usually do.. It's happening after and THAT is what worries me.. Maybe my meds are just not working??
Anyone with a similar experience or some guidance , please help..
