What you are describing can be symptoms of a stroke or Transient Ischemic attack.
I urge you to go to the ER immediately for testing.
You will need to have a CT scan or MRI.
It could also be signs of diabetes.
You do need to be checked immediately.
I have had these symptoms for 2-3 weeks now. I wanted to provide a full overview of my symptoms and plet me know if you tink I still should go to the hospital.
These are the symptoms I am experiencing:
I have stop taking all anxiety medication. It has been about two ½ weeks that I stop taking the Effexor XR 75 mg. I have been taking this medication off and on for some time.
It has been over 2 months that I stop taking Clonazepam .5 mg.
I was having back issues and took, occasionally, ½ pill of Cyclobenzaprine (5mg)
Also, I am sleep deprived and when I can not take it anymore I take ½ of Ambien (not frequent)
I am having dental work. I am waiting for a bridge.
I have been having extreme emotional pressures at home. A lot instability exist.
Did you wean off of the Effexor?
Why are you going off of everything?
Is your doctor helping you wean off?
You can diffinitely have these symptoms due to going off the Effexor so fast.. It can take a couple of months to wean off of it. Plus going off everything else.
It concerns me though that you had these symptoms before going off of it.
So for that reason I would call your Doctor or go to the ER. It could just be from the meds and you might have to go back on and then your doctor can try to wean you off slowly.
We really need to see what is going on so I would see a doc asap.
Best Wishes Honey,
Thank you so much for you help. I am really scared but could not get an appointment until next week. Do you think I can wait to next week or should I ask for an immediate appointment?
Again, thank you for helping me.
I would get immediate. The sooner you know what is going on the better chance of treating it.
