This is my first time posting in a forum. I have been dealing with GAD, panic disorder, and health anxiety for about 4 yrs now. Other than an occasional benzo and many trips to the doctor and ER I haven't really had any support. I've just been trying to tough it out. The last 3 months have been a downward spiral to the worst anxiety ever. I've had most symptoms on the list at one time or another until recently. One new one was a strong chemical smell that sent me to the ER and most recently bad leg cramps. The cramps started just in the back of my left leg. I went to the doctor and finally agreed to try zoloft. The cramps worsened and now both legs in random areas. Calves, hamstrings, tops of my feet, thights. Its like traveling painful cramps. After 5 days on zoloft I had myself convinced it was a side effect of the meds and stopped taking it because it was driving me to constant panic. A week off of zoloft now still the same. Went to the doctor today and he said its just a new symptom and wanted me to try the zoloft again. I agreed and 20 seconds after taking the pill here come the terrible leg cramps. Its pretty obvious its all in my head but its so difficult to convince myself its not some terrible disease or drug side effect that's going to kill me or cause a siezure at any moment. Anyone go through this stuff or have any encouragement?
