I am terribly sorry to read of your distress.
First of all, you don't need a psychiatrist. You need a psyCHOLOGIST. Psychiatrists deal in drugs. Psychologists deal in emotional trauma, trust issues, family dysfunction, etc.. and they teach management techniques along with processing traumatic experiences.
Next, you need to understand that psychotropic drugs can often exacerbate symptoms. It is a well documented reaction for patients to experience suicidal ideation with many of these medications. When that happens, patients are encouraged to contact their doctors, immediately, because it can end up with actual attempts at suicide.
I really LIKE the suggestion to use charcoal as an agent to help you make some decisions. Hopefully, the result will be benign and you can focus on yourself and your recovery afterwards.
Next, there is no information on the dynamics of this situation other than a description of your symptoms. What is this person saying? What is this person doing? How are the finances? How often are you seeing your friends? What are YOU doing outside of the walls of this place?
If you read my response, above, I experienced the exact same thing and it's still up in the air about whether or not the ex was poisoning me. I had never, EVER been so physically, emotionally, spiritually, and mentally ill in my lifetime, except when I was in the presence of the ex. I could have gotten a hair follicle test to see if I actually was being poisoned, and I chose to not do this - it wouldn't matter, anyway, because I wouldn't be able to prove it.
Our bodies aren't separate functioning aspects. The brain doesn't function apart from the digestive system, and the digestive system doesn't operate apart from the lymphatic system. We are a whole-being organism, mind, body, and spirit. When we are exposed to traumas and extremely negative and malicious energies, every function within our bodies responds. Some of us develop fibromyalgia (mostly, women). Some of us develop auto-immune disorders, like me - Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis. Some of us develop certain types of cancer - men will often develop prostate or bladder cancer if they experience a sudden trauma, disaster, or loss.
So, this is why I mentioned "psychologist" in lieu of "psychiatrist." And, there's been some excellent information on tumeric and its role in emotional health. A person can take as little as 250mg of tumeric with the same effect as 500mg of tumeric. It doesn't matter how much one takes, but, for some people, can be an outstanding substitute for Prozac.
"Food Is Medicine," is a whole area of study that is devoted to using what already exists all around us to heal and manage our own health and well-being.
Finally, use calming techniques whenever you can. The heart palpitations are typically a symptom of a panic/anxiety attack. They are not life-threatening when they come and go away. I know this from the personal experiences of traveling to the ER via ambulance on several occasions to learn that I was having a full-blown panic attack.
Brightest and most sincere blessings of comfort to you.
