    Back in February they found microscopic hematuria in my urine. They sent me to a urologist. They did a rectal exam, psa blood test, a CT scan of my abdomen and pelvis area, and a cystocopy. They said they found nothing. That I was cleared of cancer. Then every time I have a pain or weird symptom I think they missed something and run to the doctor. They say I'm suffering from health anxiety and put me on effexor xr 37.5mg. They upped it to 75mg a few weeks ago. I've been having dizzy spells and even fainted once. Do you think this could be from the effexor or did they miss something. I've also had 2 ct scans of my head and 3 chest xray. I'm also a diabetic. I'm on amlodopine, motoporlol tartare, losartan potassium, metformin and simbicort inhaler. Do you think any of these could be causing the dizziness and fatigue? Or do you think they missed something?

    Be very careful of Effexor. It can cause bleeds. Especially if Dr puts one on another antidepressant concurrently. I had a nasty fast nose bleed for 3 hrs.
