Hi everyone my name is Jonathan. I am 19 years old and was diagnosed with anxiety around the age of 9. I have been on Zoloft for about 10 years now....and the reason why I am posting here is because of that. For the past 2 months I have had muscle twitches, fatigue, splitting headaches/migraines (I had family visit and actually stayed in bed they were so bad), dizziness, abdominal pain/bloating, and to top it off I just haven't felt mentally like myself (Not sure if it is depersonalization, but it seems close to what I feel). Now as a hypochondriac I do tend to freak out and dwell over this stuff. Soon sometime this week I will be going to the doctor for a physical, blood test, and EKG to make sure everything is OK. To be honest I'm not in great shape...I am 6 foot 3, and probably 20 pounds (or more who knows) overweight. I walked up one flight of stairs yesterday and felt like I was about to pass out.
Now the kicker is...I went to the doctor about 6 months ago with almost the exact same issues, except without the depersonalization feeling, and was told I probably caught some sort of virus. I had no energy, pain shooting down my legs, and my heart was always beating hard. I was just curious if anyone has or has had these types of feelings? I was also curious if anyone knows possible side-effects of long term use with Zoloft?
Any Encouragement or Love would be greatly appreciated!
