The Agonizing Nightmare of Drug-Induced Akathisia

Postby Copy_Cat » Mon Nov 19, 2018 1:19 am

When I tell doctors I have drug-induced akathisia, and that it's incredibly painful, they do not believe me. They say my pain is a mental health issue, and they have all methodically undermined my credibility in my permanent record. https://www.madinamerica.com/2018/11/drug-induced-akathisia/

Has anyone ever heard a mental health "professional" even use the word Akathisia in groups or an office visit ? I never have.
I survived psychiatry.

Same here, they do not believe me when I say my phobia of medicine comes from psychiatry. Just being around a medical building triggers panic and fear. Doctor then says I have anxiety disorder. That it hinders my ability to communicate. Just recently my newer primary care doctor brought up SSRIs for treating it. WTF? :lol: :lol: There isn't a doctor whose thoughts are his or her own.


Its like this with everything. Psychiatry iatrogenically creates encyclopedias of symptoms and damage, but doctors blame it on the supposed illness. I mean if if you weren't ill you wouldn't have gotten involved with psychiatry, right?

Never, not once, did they mention akathisia to me when I obviously had it and was complaining to them about it. The only way I found out about it was when I was in the emergency room at a hospital and the nurse told me it seemed like akathisia and that it was probably caused by Geodon.

Then I started searching Wikipedia for it and YouTube for it.

It was one of the most horrific experiences of my life.
