Seroquel (quetiapine) makes my un-dx condition worse. Symptoms are heart pain, almost paralyzed due to extreme somnolence, severe cognitive impairment.. Causes?

Seroquel (quetiapine): Seroquel (quetiapine) can be very sedating -- more so depending on increased dose. It can also cause "cognitive impairment." I have no idea from here what you were like before the medication, but it sounds like you need a thorough medical evaluation. A psychiatrist may need to also be involved in your care -- and you need to tell whoever is prescribing the seroquel (quetiapine) about what you're experiencing. ...Read more

Weakness, gas, diarrhea, numbness, nervousness. Are all of these symptoms of anxiety because I have an anxiety disorder. I also was sleep deprived^?

Weakness, gas, diarrhea, numbness, nervousness.  Are all of these symptoms of anxiety because I have an anxiety disorder. I also was sleep deprived^?

Anxiety IS a symptom: There may be connections between all or some of these complaints. Also, being deprived of adequate sleep (or any other need for a healthy body) matters. Naming a set of problems helps sum it up, but it won't fix anything. You really need to see a psychotherapist, perhaps get rx help and stick to a daily healthy life plan for eating, sleeping, etc. You're aging too quickly, slow down, calm down. ...Read more

It's not too different than having a head cold and also a lower back issue - you'd feel worse and need to be extra careful. Best! ...Read more
