nope not kidding...my body had become so run down, my mental state also, from lack of sleep...improper rx sleep aids from gp who doesnt believe in them. Got the flu then a series of panic issues then when I thought it passed I got slammed with pneumonia. Went to idiot gp...he said nah youre panicking and having anxiety headaches go home and rest.....sent me home to rest with pneumonia LOL...theres a good one for you. Took a different dr under 2 mins to diagnose me and put me on antibiotic and inhaler and send me for xrays...my gp just tosses me around like "the boy who cried wolf"...i'm anxiety patient...he has me labelled as an overworrier who has nothing wrong physically so he dismisses my complaints alot lol. I will breath a sigh of relief when a get through that pdoc waiting list. That gp is so fired immediately after.
Was searching for a better sleep med as mine depress me next day....thats why i started this thread.
I do exercise but its not an option when you cant breath properly and are so weak stair are a challenge. But im getting better...ive been in worse states in my life before.
> were you kidding about the pneumonia? If you have something like that, stay in bed and rest and sleep. I would think Xanax is the gold standard. Neurontin is used a lot too.
