I don't think it'll be a long time, more like a few weeks at the most. Medication isn't always right for everyone. It wasn't right for me. I was on four different types of medication before I realized that it was doing more harm than good, and I couldn't recognize myself. Sometimes therapists aren't the right pick for you, and maybe you'll need to find a new one before you have the right combination of support.

Cam I really feel this bad from anxiety and worsened anxiety and everything that is going on my life. All of these symptoms in one shot I mean I just cant figure it out. I can drive fine, I can walk the straight line, I pass all the home neurological tests, my ent and my regular doctor said I was fine.. I DONT GET IT. These sensations twitches stings spasms tightning feeling in parts of face and head the off balance, it is all REAL and there and SCARY. I want this prozac out of my system im about to go to a detox place and get it out even quicker I have no idea what to do. i cant relax, I sit here and notice every twinge in my body, i dont want to talk to anyone that is around me, i just want to sit in a room by myself and have this prozac get the hell out of me and HOPEFULLY mayb e feel back to normal. and i hope stopping cigarettes has played a role in this as well but i am scared to death this is MS or even a brain tumor I mean scaared to DEATH..... i take xanax and sometiems it helps relax me not even all the time

Yes, it's real. The symptoms are absolutely real BUT the cause is benign. Anxiety can cause pain, make you feel weak, shaky, etc.  All of the symptoms you're having can be attributed to anxiety.

Did you stop the prozac cold turkey?  That can also be causing the symptoms.  SSRIs have to be tapered.  I've quit them cold turkey and it was not pleasant in the slightest.  I was dizzy, had zappy feelings in my brain, etc.

Yes soaring cold turkey after 3 weeks on them. My doctor said I could do that. which was kind of strange but what am I going to do....

Still feeling crappy.  tightness in my right eye now.. thinking its going to be blind or something when i wake up in the morning and that will be a real culprit of having MS or something... i am one big nut case.

Unfortunately, lots of GPs don't understand the impact of discontinuing them cold turkey.  It sucks.  I would attribute a lot of what's going on to that.  It does all kinds of crappy stuff to your body.

I know how you're feeling.  During my last "episode"I couldn't sleep, couldn't eat, woke up several times a night, it was awfulhad all kinds of symptoms and was convinced I was dying.  I'm back on Celexa and staying there.  I feel a lot better but still have to actively think logically to prevent the panic from taking back over.

Trust your doctors. They say your fine. So don't let your mind wonder and think something different
