Hello. I am a stay at home mom to a 4 month old girl and 2 1/2 year old girl. I am 4 months postpartum and have been feeling ok, but last week I had a strange episode of feeling really shaky and panicky and had to sit down and talk myself down. My chest was even getting tight.
Now I can't seem to get rid of this jittery feeling, like I've had too much caffeine or have low blood sugar. Just internal shakiness and it's really annoying and scaring me. I feel nauseaous at times and have hot flashes(?) also.
I went to the dr. and they did blood work and checked my sugar. All was normal. She thinks it might be hormonal and anxiety. She prescribed Zoloft, but I am scared to take it. I don't feel that stressed or depressed and anxious. Anyone else experience this? I don't know how to get rid of this feeling. Is this PPD? Anyone else have a positive experience with zoloft? Please help!
Thanks a bunch,
