Side effects from PPD
Hello - I'm 12 weeks post partum with my second son.  I had more anxiety and depression this time than I did after my first pregnancy.  At 7 weeks post partum, I had an anxiety attack.  I'm now on Celexa.  I'm feeling better emotionally, but I'm having some physical side effects that are freaking me out.  I am having a lot of tingling in my arms and legs and sometimes a sunburn sensation on my skin even though it's not red or actually burned.  Has anyone else had these symptoms post partum?  Of course, I google these symptoms and MS comes up.  Thank you!

The tingling in your arms and legs can be a side effect of the anxiety. I get that same thing, its a lack of oxygen. Not sure about the sunburn feeling.

I have never been on that type of medicine before, but I would def speak w/ your doc about it.  I take Zoloft for my PPD.  Maybe even google your medicine and anxiety and see what kind of physical side effects can happen w/ both.  Good luck and I wish I had more to offer.
