Hi, I need some advice : lately I have been suffering from very bad deterioration of hyperacusia after exposure to EMF. I had to quit my appartment at night in urgence and seek a new shelter (due to climatisation of the neighbours deteriorated and the vibrations and the sound didn't improve even after a technician repaired it). Since then, I can't tolerate anything, my mood is awful and i am submerged by anxiety, sound intolerance - and motion around me. I have been suffering for ME for more than 14 years, (2.5 on Karnofsky scale) but never been in a state I feel i am loosing control (of mind I mean). In the past, I had suffered from hyperacusia but not so much. Neuro advised to take some CIPRALEX (escitalopram), an SSRI to improve gating (US trade name Lexapro). An other one advised CYMBALTA, an SSNRI. Both present side effects that scare me (among them serotonin syndrom). I remember having read a few years ago a small study (sorry don't have the reference) recalling that they found a group of CFS patients having high serotonin levels. In that case, would our group may be at risk for serotonin syndrom when taking such drugs? Has anyone some experience with that? Or an other advice, cause I am scared I am getting really mad (beyond all the other plagues), In advance a big Thank you for your insights!
