Hi everyone I’m new to this group and was a bit embarrassed about Posting but it’s got the point where I feel like I have no one else to talk to 🤷🏻‍♀️. I don’t suffer with chest pains whilst having a panic attack and I used to get really bad headaches and dizzness and really tired but now a week later it’s like my body is shutting down I don’t feel like my heart is beating and I get this really empty physical feelings throughout my whole body mainly my throat and chest I don’t know if it’s the medication kicking in or it’s generally a symptom does anyone else experience this hollow feeling it’s so weird it’s like I want to be happy but in the back of my mind I feel like I’m slowly dying 🤦🏻‍♀️ I had my heart checked last week the usual blood pressure oxi meter stereoscope but I’m not sure if they are accurate which is making me panic even more 🤦🏻‍♀️ thank you for reading

Hi @Tink134 and welcome to the forums.

If you feel that the symptoms you're experiencing could be related to the meds you're taking, then it might be a good idea to have a chat with your doctor, let her/him know exactly what's going on for you.

Hopefully other members here can help shed some light on the problem as well.

A warm welcome to you Tink134.

hi welcome to the forum
I agree it would be a good idea to speak to your doctor
I often have chest pain and feel like my heart is beating out of my chest but that is anxiety I think

I hope you get some answers soon and the symptoms improve
love Lu xxx

If you just started meds give it a few weeks. Definitely sounds like anxiety to me. Just give it some time and talk to your gp as this might not be the right meds for you. Wishing you the best outcome Jules

It sounds like major depression to me. I know the feeling. I have thought the same at times, like I am dying. It is a terrible feeling.
