Nervous about seeing doc.

Posted by Cindy on May 31, 1999, at 22:41:11

I am going to see my doctor for the first time since going off the Effexor. My last appt. was at least a month ago by now and I am so nervous. Not sure why exactly, just in general. I am confused if I want to change doctors, which is probably a sign I should anyhow. I am confused on if I want to go back on any kind of medication, although I know I really need it. I just don't want to go through all the side effects (which I know would be better than suicidal thoughts, depression, et.) and to go through the withdrawls again if I have to go off whatever I go on next. In general I have been nervous about alot lately and feeling very anxious over nothing. Could these be panic attacks? I get anxious suddenly and ready to cry, get teary, feel like screaming. I haven't got any patience lately either and am getting offended at the least thing my husband sais to me. I find every little thing offensive and cannot even take most jokes anymore. Plus I am just flat as far as emotions go although during the day since I am not sleeping as much that I feel a bit 'up' but still depressed. I really don't know what I am supposed to say to my doctor, I feel like I am smack at the beginning again. Can the rest of you really tell your doctor everything you feel and stuff you have gone through? Is there one med. I should ask for or a range that I should try? I was first on Paxil (did nothing) then the effexor. Should I be this anxious about seeing my own doctor? CAn I ask this question any more diff. ways in one post? Sorry.
