Can you diagnose me? 14 doctors couldn't!

Posted by becksA on July 14, 2005, at 20:37:30

I'm EXTREMELY frustrated now because I have dealt with this problem that's holding me back, for years, and for the amount of money I've spent on docs and rx's , you'd think I would be better, not worse.

Many of you have read my posts in the past i'm sure and are aware of some of the things I deal with....My latest dx's have been Social Anxiety disorder and apparently my current pdoc thinks i may be bipolar, I was on Lamictal for 6 months at a very high dose...but my anxiety was getting so ridiculously bad, I took myself off it thinking that must have been it.
(The anxiety was so bad I was taking 12mg of Xanax XR daily), didn't seem to do a thing.
AFter coming off the lamictal (I was on 200mg daily, and I've been off it completely for about a week now, a little more, after coming off it very (probably too much so), suddenly.
After coming off it I seemed to be feeling much better taking the less potent Serax, and some adderall , but now the anxiety seems to have returned.

The worst part of this anxiety is not just social, but particularly socially "happy" and serious conversations are not a problem. When it turns into a laughing conversation , something very casual, I feel my face tighten up to the point where I can barely force a smile, (on a bad day of course) seems to always be there, somedays worse than others.
Do I try another mood stabilizer? I have no clue, I have tried juyst about everything in the book...
