Questions About Depression

why do i feel jittery?
I am recovering from ( probable food poisoning) I threw up last night after dinner and felt blehhhh. But i usually gag/throw up in the morning prob bc of my anxiety? idk im on prozac, today is day 13. I feel like my heart is beating rapidly now but im not really anxious, i just feel like crap. Getting barely any sleep isn't helping either. But what i am most worried about is why do i feel like i'm shaking inside my head. especially when i lay down it gets worse. I KNOW im healthy because before i started prozac my mom took me to like a million doctors- heart doc, regular doc, gynecologist, blood work and everything came back great. It's so frustrating! like if im not in a panic at all right now and my anxiety levels are low then why do i feel sick! is it in my head? i don't drink caffeine im not 13...
What does 'jittery' mean?
Lay off the "coke" -coffee / soda
Yes its in your head, being jittery means your body and mind are totally upset, you need calming down, and its shocking to hear of a 13 year old on Prozac, one of the most difficult anti depressants to come off - what on earth was your mother thinking allowing a doctor to put her child on that. Its also down to the prozac that your feeling jittery too. And by what you say, I think its your mother who has more of a problem than you, taking you to all these doctors and specialists just to label you as having something wrong with you. I think your mother is mostly to blame for the way you are, but sadly till your older, there is not anything you can do about it, to me its child abuse. Its her that has the problems, and frankly I hope you show your mother what I have said, she needs to wake up to reality, nurture her child not dose it up. Billie UK Mother and Grandmother myself
