Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries
Do you want me to help you out with your concerns.
What symptoms are you having at the moment?
Im just feeling really hopeless. Its weird like im in a constant dream and just not myself
I understand that it is really tough. I think you did have a detailed chat with me a while ago.
You are on sertraline if I am not wrong?
reduced the dose from 100 to 50?
Yeh i did just finding it so hard and just feel like i need reassurance. Im sorry for coming back again
No need to feel sorry
I understand that it is really tough for you.
You can be rest assured that you are absolutely fine.
Ive had loads of tests done when ive been pregnant. Ive also had a diabetes test which was fine. Would sonething have been picked up there if there was anything serious
If it were something serious something would definitely have been picked up in all those tests that you have had.
Really, do they do detailed testing. Im not even sure what tests i have done
Routine blood tests are done
If the routine blood tests are normal it means your kidneys, liver are functioning normally and your blood counts are okay
If you do not have any issues with these blood tests then youshould be fine.
I just feel so strange. I just cant believe its not serious
I understand, it is tough to realize that it is not something serious.
But trust me you are fine.
No there was nothing wrong as far as i know. Could my symptoms be related to anything else serious? This spacey not there feeling is very strong
but I assure you that this is nothing to worry about.
what symptoms would i have if i was dying?
If you were dying you would have already been in the heavens.
You talked to me a few hours back and a person who is dying does not survive this long.
But what if its happening slowly
It is not happening at all
It is your mind that keeps bugging you and makes you think that it is happening whereas a matter of fact you are absolutely fine.
Can my mind do that and make me feel so weird and not there?
Our brain is very powerful and can make you feel a lot of things and all the symptoms that you are experiencing.
I just want to feel my normal self again. It never eases and i just cant concentrate on anything
I would have liked to up your dose again
That is what I would have done.
Yeh the doctors are all closed here
Im scared also that my baby will be distressed
Your baby will be fine.
You are just thinking about this too much.
How can i stop this spacey weirdness being so strong?
I think that you would require your dose back to 100 mg.
That is how this feeling may stop.
Will i have to be on this for life? I really thought i was getting somewhere
Yes, if your symptoms are worsening as they are, then you will have to be on this for a long period of time or if the dose is reduced next time around it should be a very gradual reduction in dose rather than a sudden 50 mg drop.
Why would like doctor reduce it so suddenly do you think?
I do not know.
Every doctor has his/her own way.
But it should have been more gradual I think
Do you ever deal with people who are dying? Whats the main symptoms?
I just want to try and convince myself
Well, if you are dying you will not be talking to me right now.
Simple as that
People who are dying cannot sit in front of a laptop or computer and talk like this
Every dying person has different symptoms though.
Some have kidney failure or liver failure or heart failure or stroke etc etc.
So varies from person to person
Is this spacey not there feeling ever a symptom?
Im sorry for going on and on im just scared
Very common symptom of anxiety
But not of dying
It is not a symptom of people who are dying.
So not of dying just anxiety i just want to feel with it and able to do things
You need to be seen and have your medication adjusted.
Again for my peace of mind. Not to be rude but are you a real doctor and you promise i can trust you?
I can assure you that I am a real doctor.
and also assure you that you are fine.
