Alot of you know I am chronic and was on Topamax for many months...I was pf...But, the longer I was on it, the more depressed I got...I did not feel real. I felt like a zombie. I would go to work and run home because I did not feel like myself. The longer I did this, the more depressed I got...Finally I realized the Topamax was causing severe mood swings and depression so I stopped it and jumped back on my verapamil even though I have had problems taking verapamil in the past...Anyway, I feel like "Nancyc" is good...I have been shadowing but I can deal with this as long as I feel normal. But since I got off the Topamax, I have had alot of tension in my shoulders and back and neck. IT is getting worse and I have exercised and done everything I know to get rid of it...I know from the past that if I let it build up, I am gonna be in trouble...I am not stressed out so I don't understand the "tension" building up in my body...last nite I had a pretty bad tension headache...I just think it is odd that this started happening as soon as I stopped the Topamax...ANY suggestions on how I can get relief would be appreciated? Could this be some kind of withdrawal or something from stopping the Topamax? I really appreciate it...My shoulders feel like they are so tensed up, that they are gonna break . Smiles,nancyc
