I’m taking sertraline and propanonol for anxeity
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Anxiety

Thanks for the details

It seems the antibiotic is not working or you need an extended course

I would also like to have you on on nasal steroids and decongestants

You should take Paracetamol for headache as well

But you do need a re-evaluation

Please do let me know if you have any other question

I’ve been taking solphediene for my headaches, I’ve seen 2 doctors in the past 2 days and they’ve both said the same, I’m going to ring the doctors tomorrow for an appointment, why am I feeling pressure in my head? I can’t concentrate or anything and it’s really worrying me, as being an anxiety sufferer too it’s really getting to me

The pressure in head can be due to anxiety

Other option could be a sinus issue causing a headache

Please do let me know if you have any other question

you don’t think it’s anything serious?

No it is definitely nothing serious

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Also my blood pressure is up and down all the time too, and I’m having niggly pains in my chest all the time

That may be a separate issue and will need monitoring just to see if you need any treatment for this

Please do let me know if you have any other question
