Hi, I am male and 30 years of age. I have a bit of a problem and that is sometimes I get very nervous when talking to people and my heart starts racing like 200 beats per minute and I struggle for breath. I also worry about minor things and it can cause me not to sleep well at night. I am not awkward socially and I am perfectly normal around people.
Yesterday, when I was talking on the phone I could not even complete a sentence because I was that nervous and short of breath.
I have also been suffering from Premature Ejaculation and I have always had this issue and I remember a few years ago when I was completing a questionnaire, I nearly ejaculated and that was without an erection. It also happened some 14 years ago and then I ejaculated and everything blacked out in front of me.
I saw a doctor yesterday who suggested that I see a counsellor and I said I don’t think that would help as I have seen a counsellor in the past. He has asked me to have some blood tests done but he is saying it’s anxiety and he has already prescribed me Paroxetine, I have read on the internet and people don’t have positive feedback about the use of this drug and it’s side effects. I have not take any of the tablets yet. What should I do? Are there any other avenues that I can possibly probe?
