    A lot of shaking in chest and numbness and pins and needles in hands

    hey everyone im 22 female on psychiatric medications. I stopped one cold turkey and developed shaking and a lot of strong pain in my chest area. took an echocariogram all negative for heart problems. Another thing is my head always spinning and Im always feeling dizzy. Also, I get numbness in my hands and pins and needles is this all from going off my psychiatric medication cold turkey. What did i develop wrong with me? Please help

    you are going through withdraw..from your meds,,not taking them...it is a horrible feeling..When I did that..I felt like electric shocks was going from the top of my head to my my toes....even if i just moved my eyes,,it was horrible,,the only thing that stopped it was getting back on the pills and telling doc,,and tapering off slowly...cindy

    I did this once as well and it was a horrible ordeal. One should NEVER quit a med like that cold turkey. The best way to help yourself is to take them and wean off slowly, otherwise you could really hurt youself as you are seeing, in some cases it could be much worse. You can call your doc and tell him you stopped your med and see what he says as well as far as med management at this point. I hope you feel better soon, Many blessings!

    Did the symptoms start when you stopped your meds?

    If so it could be withdrawal.

    Psy mens are "blood level " drugs. So they leave your system a little at a time not on the day you stop them.

    If the symptoms preceded you going off of them then they could be a side effect of the meds or it could be a different problem all together.

    It is never wise to stop taking any med cold turkey without your doctor knowing.

    I would advise you to call the doctor that put you on the meds and see him.

    He should be able to point you in the right direction more than a message board

    Good Luck

    I would recommend seeing a neurologist as this could have something to do with the Central Nervous System (CNS). I would also talk to your Primary doc as well in case he would like to rule out any other problems. Good luck and many blessings, hopefully its nothing serious.
