For the last six months my health has deteriorated rapidly. One day at the end of October, I was walking home when my vision seemed to lose peripheral quality, all I saw was leaves and dizzyness brought me down to my knees resulting in a panic attack. I have a history of PTSD which of course contributes to my distress. I'm awaiting an appointment for an urgent CT scan due to headaches on waking and other symptoms. My GP is also querying Addisons disease which I have read a little about but other than that I am pretty naive. My symptoms consist of headaches, head pains, pains in joints, tenderness on scalp, stinging pain under nails (usually when asleep - it wakes me up), weakness in legs and arms, mild face pain, twitching of toes and fingers, dizzyness - drop to ground before i faint. I also have diagnoses of hypermobility syndrome, mild PAD, Asthma, hypothyroidism. I would be so grateful if someone would get back to me because I am so anxious and have convinced myself I am going to die. Also can a CT scan be done without the contrast and what can they give me to keep me calm if the Diazepam I already take is not adequate.
have u had any updates ?G day im jonathon woods im 19 and atm im in abit of troubel looking for a hand
i recently got cheated on by my ex gf wich hurt me so i decided to eat healthy workout each day etc and ended up devolping this pain under my ribcage! in the lower left abdominals

btw sorry if this is messy im writing it on my phone
how r u going as well ?
So what is the bulge did you get a diagnosis or what?? they just sait it looks odd??
Our symtoms are indicative of anxiety. I dont think that you have something wrong.
Except that bulge but if the doctor did not alert you i dont see no reason to stress.
So get a diagnosis see what is it and you can be calm and stop monitoring everything you feel.
And talk to your doctor about starting counseling and speak with him about withdrawing from Zoloft.
