I recently visited my Doctor with symptoms of anxiety, but not really. . .
Let me start from the beginning. About a year ago I had chronic heartburn that was beyond a simple "pop the tums". Coupled with stress of work/moving, I started getting a feeling of anxiety when I lay down to sleep(or at least what I think is anxiety). As the year went on, the "anxiety" slowly started turning into major apnea. The apnea is so bad, I am actually waking up in a fight-or-flight mode.
This has been going on and continually has gotten worse, so I decided to see my Doctor right away. After a painstaking 30minutes of trying to describe how I was feeling, I was given Protonix and Cymbalta. I have been on both for two weeks now, and still the same feeling when I lay down to sleep. Fight-or-flight....when all I am doing is thinking of fun things to do. So....Yes everything has progressively gotten worse, more than likely caused by the chronic, untreated heartburn. I have had my heartburn under control for at least 2 months now, why is my Doctor still blaming everything on GERD when I have it under control? Why am I being treated for depression when I genuinely feel ok? The only thing I have to be depressed about is this non-stop feeling of reaching the top of a roller coaster, and I stop breathing in my sleep :\
I never had ANY of this until a year ago.
