Oh no after 18months it's started again :-(
« on: December 17, 2013, 10:49:08 AM »
Hi guys.

18 months ago I suffered with HA and was prescribed 10mg a day of citraloptam which did the trick. I came off them on April this year and over the past few months it's been creeping back. I went back to docs and been put back on them.

I hate hate hate this anxiety and feel so low.
Last night I woke up worrying about where I had placed some tickets that I need for the weekend, I found them but then began to have pains in a band around under my chest and then centralised to the center of my chest where my breast bone ends. So naturally I have been searching all day about heart attack. I'm super convinced I will have one. It really scares me. Surely I would know if I had a heart problem really???

This forum was fantastic for me last time and really appreciate support :-)

Sorry to see you have had to come back Betty.

The good news is that you know about HA now, you know it's tricks, you know the lies it tries to tell you. You are coming at this from a position of greater power that before. Did you have any therapy alongside the Citalopram? These sorts of treatments can help you to develop ways of thinking to get around the intrusive HA spiral.
