Re: Just got back from neurologist--please help!



So Its been 1 month since the faint and I'm still so anxious over it. I'm thinking of asking my family doctor to recommend a psychiatrist. I'm afraid of medication though. I was on an anti-depressant 3 years ago and the very first night I started the med I fainted that night! But besides that, it made my fat and didnt do anything to rid the anxiety. I'm willing to try a new one though, anything at this point would be better than the way I feel these days.
