OK, so after a couple of weeks of anti-anxiety meds, the feeling is gradually going away. They have me on an SSRI (Citalopram) which I take daily, AND
will continue TAKING
for about 6 more weeks, so I'm told. I'm actually surprised, but this does seem to be anxiety related.
Here's what convinced me it was anxiety & tension.
The first few days of TAKING
the SSRI sucked big time. The side effects for me were dizziness AND
confusion, which triggered a couple of panic attacks.
