Ok, thank you for the additional information.
Thank you for trying to ease my nerves, my dogs listen,, but not much on advice...
Clonazepam can be the cause of your dizziness. However with your history of SVTs it is important to rule out other causes too such as cardiac issues. I recommend you go to you doctor to have orthostatic vital signs, EKG, and blood test. Other causes of the symptoms you are experiencing are thyroid issues, diabetes, anemia, vitamin deficiencies, autoimmune disorders, vertigo, infection. I therefore think a thorough exam and work up with your primary care physician is needed.
I had a full blood work performed in Dec. Testing almost all of those above mentioned and the results came back fine except triglycerides a little high.
said vit d was a little low
then the likely cause is your medication. I recommend you talk to your doctor about getting something else to help you with the anxiety.
i have been seeing my primary physician once every 2 months for checkups and blood work every 4-6 months
That is good you should keep up with your regular follows up
should i change my NFL football team? My dolphins arent doing so well..lol
but do speak about getting your medication changed.
.25 is not very strong is it doc?
i tried to wing myself off 5 months ago, made it 5 days without and felt like i crashed
It is a small dose. But it appears to be affecting you with the dizziness. Therefore, it should be switched.
is there a nerve pill, that will cause less dizziness, as i see clon side affects list dizziness
my heart and chest pain are finally almost non existant:)
can i try and go cold turkey with the clonz? will it affect me in a negative way
You can try other medications such as Xanax and Lexapro. Although they also have side effect of dizziness, different medications respond differently with different patients, and therefore you may be better with either of these.
You may experience some side effects if you stopped abruptly. That is why seeing your doctor and getting a tapering dose to stop it might be necessary.
Do you believe it is stress related due to the heart issues i had year ago. I went to er 6 times in 12 months thinking i was dying of a heart attack.
before the svt was corrected year ago jan
Stress can cause certain symptoms yes. But it is not likely causing all of your symptoms.
should i see a nero specialist for a scan?
just tired of feeling this way
I can understand your frustrations.
You need to switch your medication. So please see your regular doctor regarding this.
Ok I will. I am going in for blood work tomorrow, see my doc on this thur. I wll review results with him and mention med change
its been a long 2.5 years of fighting this
I can understand.
