I'm 52 years old. Almost 4 weeks ago I woke up with awful vertigo. Room was spinning. Really really scared the crap out of me. Turned out that I have BPPV, nothing serious. They treated it with physical therapy, and it's pretty much resolved.
BUT the fear and anxiety about what the hell it was triggered me and now I'm in this awful rut of extreme morning anxiety and depression every day. This is my 4th major depression (MD).
I'm on the highest dose of Zoloft. My Psych gave me Buspar a few days ago but I haven't taken it yet. I use a low dose of Valium each morning just to deal with the anxiety (I know the risks with it).
Previous episodes of depression were triggered by pregnancy, Prednisone, and I'm not sure what triggered the 3rd episode
My question is has anyone else had a MD episode triggered by a really frightening event???
