Anxiety feeling?

I’ve been on Zoloft 100mg for about a month. Still get the light head dizzy feeling. I can be fine then my head feels weird then I get like this hot burning feeling thru out my body. Heart races a bit. I try not to panic. Is that anxiety? Does anybody else get these? I know it takes time for the medicine to balance out. Plus I have sinus problems. Such a scary feeling. It’s so hard dealing with this 🙁

When I was on Zoloft I would feel like that sometimes. The body does lots of... odd things in my opinion when these meds and anxiety are intermingling. I spent a lot of time trying to track this stuff and find some sort of correlation to what was happening in my body but I never found any rhyme or rhythm to it.
I'm no longer on a behavioral medication and my body still does weird things at times. (Heart palpitating, skin flushes, chills). I've struggled with anxiety for a long time and I'm still alive and kickin' so I've just learned to not give it much importance when it happens. It just feels uncomfortable but always passes.
There is a lot to the body that we don't understand so I just chalk it up to something I don't understand and trust that my doctor knows more than I do, and will tell me when there is something to worry about.

Hi
I’m glad you have mentioned the burning sensation going through your body - I get this too! I’m on Citalopram though- have been on for years but now & then when I’m anxious I get lightheaded & the burning in my body
It freaks me out - like you said you try & not panic but it’s so hard
Just another one of anxieties ways of telling us it’s still there
Does yours just come out of the blue sometimes, when you are feeling fairly ok ? I do try breathing exercises to distract my brain from concentrating on the symptoms or body scan meditation on YouTube
Hope things improve for you 🤗
