I haven't felt this way since before I was on psyche meds. Recently I lowered my dose of lexapro from 10 to 5 mgs with my doctors consent. I've done this before but after a few weeks or a month I would get headaches so I would go back on it at 10 mgs and after three days the headaches would go away.
Now I've been on 5mgs for two months without headaches, but last weekend anxiety suddenly hit me out of nowhere. And now for whatever reason I have these fluttering feelings anywhere in my body...And now they've become painful like cramps or pinches, especially on my feet or hands.
This will be my forth or so day back on 10 mgs and I'm hoping once it builds up this problem will go away.
I might sit in on my moms neurologist appointment monday (we go to the same one) and see if he can help, although if it is psychological probably can't do much.

I just don't know what to do. :(

  • Hi Butterfly...

    I can't help with your symptoms but just thought I'd say you may want to rethink your idea of talking to the neurologist during your mom's appointment, even if he is also your neurologist. Doctors take a dim view of dispensing medical advice in that kind of setting, partly I suppose from the fact they aren't being paid to advise you at that appointment, but they also don't have your chart and can't document the conversation/advice.

    Not trying to criticize you, please understand, just suggesting you might want to rethink your plans if you want to stay in a good relationship with your neurologist. :)

    I understand and feel that way too. Actually I would offer to pay for a visit. The thing is he has known my mother for 20 years, and he's a really easy going, kind doctor. Not the typical patient/doc relationship. He has 7 kids so he talks to me like an adult but also as if I was one of his children.

    But I totally get what you are saying. I'll see what happens.
