Discussions that mention lexapro

General Health board


Hello. About 2 1/2 months ago I started having a fever and bad pains in my left leg between the groin and knee area. I went to the doctor several times and he ran several tests but kept telling me it was anxiety and put me on lexapro. The pain in my leg eventually went away but then a tightness/pain in my chest/left arm started and I could sometimes feel this strange sensation traveling between my left chest and behind my belly button. I went to the doctor again and my heart still sounded fine and my blood pressure was fine as well. I continue to have the sharp chest pain and arm tightness as well as the weird feeling behind my belly button. And after looking at the symptoms for blood clots, I'm afraid I have one that started in my leg, broke off and is now traveling between my arm, heart, and behind my belly button. I've asked my doctor several times if he thought it was one, but keeps assuring me that it isn't.

These pain/sensations have been REALLY bothering me for the past 2 1/2 months. Can someone please help me???
