I had a baby almost 3 months ago I have postpartum depression and very bad anxiety.I'm now taking a medication called Celexa for this which has not kicked in yet. The doctor said these kind of medications take 3 weeks to kick in. After the 2nd night of taking it i woke up i was just laying there and all of a sudden my heart fluttered and i jumped up out of bed woke my husband up screaming the i was burning everywhere. my entire body had a very bad tingling burning sensation started in my head and moved downward to my toes... it went away after about 5 minutes.but I still went to the ER... as I was sitting waiting to be seen by a doctor the tingling burning sensation came back about 3 more times the doctor said i was having a panic attack. he gave a Xanax and it took this feeling away now its been coming and going all week... but everytime i take a xanax i feel ok has any1 ever heard of this?

I don't know anything about those medications, but what you are describing sounds like a hot flash. I had terrible hot flashes after I had my DD. Your heart beats really fast, you feel like you're on fire, maybe dizzy too, and you start to sweat. After having a baby your hormones go crazy, trying to readjust themselves. I also had night sweats, very bad. If it keeps bothering you ask your doctor to test your hormone levels. Having your hormones off can also cause depression and mood swings.
