Hi kate, thankyou for your response. I experience all of the above syptoms. But having only recently sought help for the first time I am stressed that I may be losing my mind. I am starting with a psychiatrist in the next week. My general practioner is excellent. I am married with two beautiful children, and since starting higher dose lexapro have felt my tension and anxiety increase massively. How does the process of mental health disorder diagnosis work? My gp simply treats my symptoms. I also have restless leg syndrome if that is relevant.
