tremor

Hello, I'm 28 years old. Sorry about my English not being perfect.
I've been having ongoing mixture of feelings that come in the morning and there is no way to stop them for about 2 months now.
The main one from them all is probably inside unspecified tremor more than depression. There is also physical feeling of my head or maybe just ears being sort of behind a glass, like a slight dizziness or brain laziness.
So I'm not sure if the tremor is not caused by that head thing. It happens simultaneusly.
I wasn't clear headed like i used to be since it started and sometimes i have a hard time to get through my days.
My memory is bad, i forget things like closing my bag or where i put something i had in my hand a while ago and i have hard time concentrating on things like reading or thinking. I've noticed slight  nerve shakes in my face and my hands and legs are sometimes shaking a bit too but not much. It's more like a feeling of shaking.
I've discovered that those symptoms are a lot worse when i drink even a glass of beer the night before. I quit drinking. Before i drank about 2 beers a day but not regularly.

I've been tested before the holidays for thyroid, lipid spectrum and borelia and generic blood test and it's all fine.
I asked physician to prescribe me some light antidepressives and she gave me Neurol 0.25. I only take it when it's worst. It makes it a little bit better, the tremor goes away but i don't want to use pilIs. I did not want to go see a psychiatrist but maybe i should. I never had any mental problems before except once or twice i felt the same but it always went away the next day and i thought it was from stress.
I did use "recreational drug" [of a "speed" kind] 2 months ago but only once last year and very little. I never had strange reaction like that to it and i don't use drugs regularly [once a year]. Do i have to tell this the psychiatrist?
Can this be treted w antidepressives?
Is it gonna go away?????
Does it mean i can't drink a drop of alcohol ever?

living w my boyfreind for 2 years now, our relatioship is good, we talk about my problem and it's been very helpfull.
He says that is not stronger than me but it is.
I enjoy seeing freinds, i work at home, i do well so no job stress...

Please, tell me if you can tell whether i should do more medical tests or go to psych. straight. it's very depressing to search for help when you young and don't really have any serious problems.
thank you
Hanna

Hanna, what you have described sounds like a moderately severe anxiety reaction.   You should see a psychiatrist, and tell him or her everything. This is best treated by a combination of psychotherapy and medication, so be sure to go to a psychiatrist who does both.

It doesn't mean you have to give up drinking permanently, but you should until you get this under control.

Hope this helps.
