I have been diagnosed with anxiety, I take lorazepam 2 times a day
I also have hypothyroidism and take medication. my story started 19 months ago at work when i almost passed out, everything was getting black, then it all came back. since then i've had the fear of passing out.
now I have these episodes where i get afraid to be alone and tingling in my face hands and feet. i also get dizzy and feel like i'm going to pass out, the only differance is that things don't get black anymore, anyone out there ever experience this?

  • I have been diagnosed with anxiety/panic attacks. It started about 2 years ago when I was working, I felt really hot and shaky then I got light headed like I was going to pass out. When I feel like this my face gets hot and my body tends to shake all over, and my jaws get tight and tingling. I take celexa for this problem, does anyone else experience similar problems????

  • Celexa caused me to have anxiety attacks. I had to take Xanax for a while to get rid of them. I thought that Celexa was mostly prescribed for depression. I think you should check with your doctor and change medications.
