I am a 33 yr old female who is overweight. I am on blood pressure medication. I have major depression, OCD, and panic disorder. I have been having muscle spasms in my legs, arms, and neck/head. I have no other significant symptoms that are different.

The doc gave me these drugs:
flexerell - muscle relaxer
buspar - anti anxiety
batrim - for a UTI
hydrochlorothiazide - blood pressure
Prozac - I was already on this before @ 40 mg.

I think it may have something to do with my anxiety and depression. As a person with Obssessive Compulsive Disorder, it is hard for me NOT to look up my symptoms and worry about what it may be. In Nov 2008, I had Bells Palsy on the right side of my face. It has healed 95%. Anyway, I as wondering what everyone's thoughts were on the subject.
