I recently visited my family doctor again because my toes have been going red, and because of the palpitations. He prescribed me Adalat XL to control the issues with the toes (which may be Raynauds Disease) and palpitations, and prescribed Cipralex to control the anxiety. I took the pills yesterday morning at 9:30AM once I was at work. 2 hours later while sitting on a chair discussing work, I suddenly started having a metallic taste in my mouth. A few seconds later my back started to feel like I had pins and needles in it, this spread throughout my entire body. I also started sweating and felt like I was going to faint - I threw myself on the floor and had to stay lying down for over 5 minutes.
I called the pharmacist to see what I should do and they suggested that I consult the ER. Upon arriving at the ER they quickly evaluated my blood pressure and heart rate (BP was normal, heart rate was at 98). They told me it was a panic attack but I've never felt like this in my life. This is the first time I've had a weird taste in my mouth and first time I've felt so weak I couldn't stay sitting. The ER doctor prescribed me some ativan temporarily to handle the panic attacks.
I took 0.5 antivan ***** 10:00am and the same panic attack just happened again (at 3pm) (I'm off work and was relaxing on the couch)...When my wife came to see me she hugged me and told me my heart was all over the place, not beating stable....I'm going crazy!
These symptoms feel like my BP dropped so low that I was going to pass out, but the doctor was convinced it was a panic attack.
What do you guys think?
Thank you so much for your time.
