Thanks Z, for your concern. My symtoms started nearly 7 years ago, as I stated in my prev. post. This is nothing new to me. I've had every test imaginable, ct scans, crt's, coroted artery tests, seizure tests, etc., by different dr's in the past 7 years. I always get referred to the pdoc. or therapy. My current pdoc is a psychiatrist and is better than any I've ever had. Some of my attacks are less severe, some more.

I used to get these while at work. The dble vision, and unable to speak clearly. We had a trained team at work that would come take my blood pressure and take me in a wheelchair to our infirmary. I'd lay down, sleep, then go back to work after a few hours. I was so useless, and cldn't remember who I'd spoken to on the phone or anything for at least 24 hours.

On one of my first episodes way back then, I did go to the hospital, my son's were young and I passed out on the kitchen floor. They cld 911. It was Christmas Eve. Anyway, the hosp didn't find anything just referred me to my doctor. Then the dr. referred me to a psyc.

These attacks have nothing to do with Effexor. Like I've said before, Effexor XR has been my saving grace. I take Xanex for these so called anxiety attacks. Like right now I'm fine but I could "zap" anytime. I'm not working now which is good. I fear having an attack while on an interview. Wouln't make a good first impression, huh? We need to laugh more to get that seratonin flowing.
