Last time I went to the doctor, she recommended therapy for my anxiety. She also prescribed Xanax, but when I told her I still wanted to stick with the Ativan (but really want to get off anxiety meds,) she said STOP taking them. I have sleep apnea, and after 6 months, I'm still not feeling well with the C-PAP. She said I no longer need to see the sleep doctor. Seems nuts to me. She gave me a blood test again last time, but except for elevated liver function, nothing was abnormal - so she assumes it's mostly anxiety with some of it being the apnea. I know she's an internist, but I feel confused going to her. I still have these symptoms: - mind numbing brain fog (seems to be along the temples most,) headaches, head affected easily by mood, excitement, and stress - flatness/low mood/can't enjoy things/easily cry/depression - pretty bad fatigue, especially mental - abdominal aching/bloating/constipation, stiff muscles in lower part - ears feel kind of under water and bothersome - every time I sleep, I wake up feeling worse - sometimes wake up with parts of body tingly/restless; often take a while to fall asleep - hard to concentrate/focus; everything seems like a chore - heart weirdness (racing, fluttering, sometimes pounding too easily) and some out of breath sensations (but sleep studies showed no arrhythmia, and inhale/exhale test seems ok) - bad anxiety I'm thinking there must be something besides anxiety to feel this way since November of last year, when I got a virus I never seemed to recover from completely. What do you think, and should I leave this doctor? Sorry to keep mentioning this, but I'm so down about how I feel. Some people thought I have CFS. But my symptoms are pretty consistent, and my attitude makes things a little better or worse. Thing is, going for relatively short walks and biking for 10 minutes doesn't really make me feel much worse. So I'm scared this is something worse than CFS. Any advice?
