Hello, I have a slight problem. I take Prozac 20MG once a day. I am 12 years old, so I am up for "The Black Box" warning, though I had almost no problems. Now, after about 6-9 months I have some problems:
1.) The anti-depressants seemed to help at first, but now they seem to have less effect. I cry often, and it is often worsened or caused by an existing condition I have called RND, short for Reflex Neurovascular Dystrophy. RND is also why I was prescribed the Prozac.
2.) Also at first, it seemed to help my stuttering, but now I stutter a lot, and rarely say 2 sentences without stuttering. Even though my friends and family say they hardly notice it, it bugs me and often causes me to feel more depressed.
3.) Because of the RND, I have been out of school almost 3 Years. The first year I developed RND, I was in 5th grade. I sprained my ankle, and I was on crutches for a while until I broke my finger. Then I couldn't use crutches, so I was put in a wheelchair. The lack of mobility and flow of blood in my ankle is what cause RND. Anyways, I have had less and less social life since then, and this has made me even more depressed. I cannot go back to school, either, because of the constant pain.
4.) I have a very rare case of RND, because it spread to my head. It interrupts my thoughts and hurts so much. It hurts 24/7 and have never had a break from the pain. Then, there are random extreme shooting pains that literally feel like someone is stabbing me in the head. It is NOT, I REPEAT NOT! a headache. It does not even compare. There are very few people with RND, and it makes me depressed, knowing that I am one of the few people with it. Then, knowing that I am one of the very very select few (if not only) people on this planet that has RND in their head. I feel like the only way out is death.
I am completely cornered and I need help. I feel almost no reason to live because I am very accident prone. I had 1 other condition called PLEVA, almost died as a baby from RSV, broken 9 bones, sprained 2 places, had 4 concussions, had a stomach parasite and other things I probably don't remember. I feel like even if I overcome RND be injured or infected or die, and then if I overcome that I might die or be infected or injured again. Please help me!
