is this normal?

for the past month ive been waking up with an extreme nervous feeling. even if i go to bed ok i still wake up with it. i usually get up and take my daily does of lexapro and it calms me down right away but when i wake up again it sometimes comes back. lately ive been obsessing about having epilepsy because at the begining of all this i had deja vu so i looked it up and saw it was a symptom, so now that all i think about. i constantly sit around and think omigod this has happened to me before i feel like this has happened to me before and thats all i think about, so i cant tell if im really having it or just feeling i am because im obsessing over it. the more i think about it the more i have it and the lexapro isnt helping with taking these thoughts away! can anyone relate to me, is this anxiety/panic or something else. i have a HUGE fear of dying by the way!

Re: is this normal?

lexapro should help the obsessiving but maybe the dose needs upping, ask doc

deja vu is often caused by stress and anxiety

Re: is this normal?

yes yes yes!!! i stress about the same thing. i have a severe fear of death/sickness and dying. my latest thing has been epilepsy too. or some sort of seizure. i get real spaced out, dont feel real, i feel confused sometimes and then like i'm gonna pass out.. i was on paxil for 2 years and it took MOSt of this away.. I felt much better. so, back on it i go!!!! still in the back of my mind is. well, what if the meds really just made me not stress about dying, but i really am dying... maybe the tests i had done werent enough.. the ekg's, stresstests, echo, holter monitor, and cat scan. maybe i really needed a eeg and an MRI. I know way too many symptoms, and tests, i should be a doctor. haha, i have to say though, these head symptoms scare me most. the feeling weird and spaced out and confused, etc.. i hate not being in control of my own mind..
