Hello Here are a list of my symptoms:
This all started 3mos ago when I was driving my car and all of a sudden it felt like I was going to faint. This has happened probably 4 times since. I get tingling feelings all through my body. even my head. Sometimes it feels like there is water on my head, and I will go to wipe it and it is dry. My mouth gets numb spots and inside my mouth also. All of this happens very random and only lasts maybe a 1 minute each time. but all through out the day. It is never a very big spot just places. LIke a place on my arm, or leg. Never my whole leg,or foot,. The doctor are saying anxiety but I just having a hard time with that. I started taking Lexapro 4 days ago, but nothing has really changed. I also get a burning feel. Kind of like peppermint feeling with cool air on it. LOL. I am going to the NEuro in 2 wks and I hope he take it seriously because it has scared me and I pretty much don't go anywhere for the fear of passing out. I have been to the ER twice for this and they did a CAT scan that came back fine. Sorry this was so long, but I am definately scared of what it could be. Any thoughts? thanks in advance. erika
4 days isn't much to go by, sometimes it can take up to 4 weeks [approx] to get any real benefit from serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) like Lexapro, they affect the chemicals in the brain that may become unbalanced, but i do agree with Kelsey for a complete work up by a neuro would be very wise.
i can totally relate to that. That how i feel,i just want to scream,not getting answers to my questions also not evn sure what all my question should be.hopefully it will get better for us and all the others that feel this way,keep us posted.kelsey
