About 5 weeks ago I got serotonin syndrome. I took 5mg of Escitalopram for a couple of days, and on the 4th day I added 12.5ml of flaxseed oil to the diet and got a mild case of serotonin syndrome and I still haven't recovered from it fully - some muscle spasms and numb feelings. I'm also incredibly sensitive to tryptophan rich foods which brings me back to the syndrome. Talked to my doctor about lengthening my sick leave due to being very fatigued, and his response was that my fatigue is caused by anxiety and I should start slowly getting back to work in a month. He also wants me to start taking SSRI again since he's so sure it will cure me but I'm afraid I might die if I do, I can't even eat food with much tryptophan in it without damaging the recovery, what would happen if I took an SSRI? If I don't do what he says I won't receive any money for being on sick leave, and I don't know what I'm gonna do. Should I take a very small amount and end up with a worsening of my symptoms just to show them I'm really sick? If so, I'll stay close to the ER to reduce the risks. Any advice is much appreciated.
