hello I'm new here but have had anxiety and panic attacks since i was 18. I've had my ups and downs but right now I'm pretty low let me explain I'm married and have 4 kids i was working as a machinist for about 5 yrs but about 2 mo ago i got the flu and bronchitis's the doc put me on methle predisone(steroid) and after i was done taking it i started having palputation's pretty bad so i went to the doc and they checked me out and said everything was fine but i didnt feel fine so after about a week i tried to go back to work and just could not handle it and quit so i went back to the job i had before(it paid a little less but alot less stress) worked one night and had panic and anxiety pretty bad, the next day got the flu again got over that and was really depressed and was still fighting anxiety so i ask my job if i could take time off to try to get help they said okay. i went back to the doc and this time just kind of ignored me this was not my original doc so i decided to pay a little more and go to my doc that prescribed me zoloft about 6 yrs ago so when i explained everything to her she checked me out and said everything is good but she was going to up my zoloft to 150mg and prescibed me atavan. i'm the kind of guy that is pretty scared to take a new med but i did and i just felt really out of it so i quit taking it. i also started to see a therepist this week and really been learning more about this condition but i have all kind of symptoms from my heart palpatations, dizzy, tingling in arms and legs and face, sweaty hards, cold and hot flashes, uncontrollable fear, i also have a numbness on my left side, somtimes right side and sometimes both in arms legs and face and was wondering if any body else had that feeling before? i've had cat scans done before about this problem but it all came back good and my doctor said just anxiety also wanted to get some feedback on going back to work maybe some tips or something as me and my wife are having some money issues and she understands my problem pretty good but i feel it wearing thin she is usually a homemaker but feels like she needs to find work PLEASE SOMEONE HELP chris
