Welcome to HealthcareMagic Public Forum

Such symptoms can occur most probably due to sudden stoppage of paxil or excessive stress or increase anxiety due to cold. If you have stopped your paxil then restart it and do not stop it in future without your physician advice.

If stress is prolonged or severe then, for treatment, you can visit specialist like psychiatrist or psychologist.

I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
Wish you Good Health.
