It has been awhile since I have visited this board and I have missed it! An update for those who read my posts in the past...still on Zoloft 150 mg once at bedtime and staying busy volunteering and interning. On another note, graduation is this December! How has everyone been?
My question that brings me here to today is about anxiety following general anesthesia from a wisdom tooth extraction. I went under Thursday and had all four teeth pulled. Saturday, I had to go to the ER for chest pain and shortness of breath due to a possible blood clot. Luckily, a simple blood test showed no signs so I was sent home with the possibility of acid reflux. Well, I still have the pain in my chest but now I am also having TERRIBLE dizziness (vertigo) and headaches. I am also having really bad depersonalization and trouble sleeping. I was wondering if this was normal and maybe I'm just stressed out from Saturday? Maybe this will wear off at some point? Or should I head back to the doc?
