I really cant describe very well whats going on but it

Customer Question

I really cant describe very well whats going on but it started about a week ago. I was at the zoo and got very hot. every since then when I turn my head or eyes I have this strange dizzy but not dizzy sensation in my head and between my eyes. I just got new glasses a few months ago and had eye exam but it seems my vision has been dulling with this issue too. I have been slightly more "off" than normsl. kinda spacey here and there. what could this be?

Oh I'm full of problems. Lol. Thyroid issues, hypoglycemia, fibromyalgia I take generic synthesis and Zoloft. But I actually just weaned myself off Zoloft bc it made me so tired all the time I couldn't function. Maybe I weaned off of it too fast. I went from 100mg to totally off in two weeks. I feel better this morning since I woke up but last night was horrible.
Expert:  Dr. Rick replied 3 years ago.
Usually the only side effect of stopping zoloft too fast is a flu-like feeling and, sometimes, strange thoughts that you may find upsetting.
The good news? This will resolve on itself in a couple of weeks, or sooner if you restart the zoloft.
Does this make sense to you?
