I haven't been on here in awhile, basically because I was having major depression/anxiety issues. And me searching my symptoms here and all over the internet was just making me worry and wonder and panic and cry. I would be on here until late at night, and then try and fall asleep and have panic attacks as soon as I started to drift off. It felt like someone was squeezing my chest. I had to take ativan just to get a full nights sleep. Then i started to take prozac and my symptoms evened out. I went off it after about 6 months though, and i might just be regretting it now. I'm not in the depression/ crying all the time phase at all, but I must be worrying about something because I'm starting to get those panic attacks either in my sleep or as I'm trying to sleep. Its more about my neck though. I had some problems with muscle spasms in the past, and the left side of my neck seems to be spazzing out every time I try to sleep. I drink calming teas before bed, i take benadryl (since I ran out of ativan)... And for the third night in a row I wake up at 4 am with twitching in my neck. Again not painful, but annoying. Which in my universe usually leads to worry. :/ Just a little while ago i was about to dose off and my throat felt like it was closing. So, screw sleep. apparently i'm awake for the day :(
