Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Sorry to hear about your symptoms.
Anxiety and panic attacks can cause such symptoms commonly.
Underlying medical conditions like thyroid gland dysfunction, diabetes, vitamin B12 and D deficiencies should be checked.
Severe iron deficiency also can cause such symptoms.
The nerves supplying your scalp and muscles can be edgy or easily irritated from any of the above mentioned conditions.
Blood tests --serum iron assay, ferritin, vitamin D and B12 levels, folate level, TSH and free T4 levels, fasting blood sugar levels should be checked.Best wishes,It was my pleasure to help you today.If I have answered all your questions, Please rate my response Excellent (click on the 5th star on top).Please bookmark my profile for fast, reliable authentic answers!This is the link to my profile:http://www.justanswer.com/medical/expert-mysticdoc/
Ok thanks for your reply.
In that case, you may be suffering from post traumatic stress disorder ( PTSD).
You will benefit from a medication like sertraline 25 to 50 mg daily.
Short acting anti anxiety medication like buspirone can be added with sertraline for better effect initially.
Psycho counseling focusing on cognitive behavioral therapy ( CBT) should prove beneficial.
Citalopram 20 mg also will help.
Keep in mind it may take about 4 to 6 weeks to see any significant effect from citalopram--that is how this class of medications works.
Seredyn has passion flower, valerian, niacin, magnesium.
All these compounds known to help with anxiety symptoms.
However, the action is not predictable for each individual.
You can give it a try but may not be as strong as prescribed medications.
Yes that should help over time.
The dose of citalopram may need to be increased after 4 weeks.
That is not possible from online unfortunately.
Your GP already prescribed you citalopram.
You should discuss with your GP about dose increase after 4 weeks if symptoms are still there.
Should not be a problem.
You may try citalopram first and should work as well.
Do give it at least 4 weeks.
