Birth Control causing paranoia?
I'm wondering if it's possible for birth control to cause extreme fear/paranoia? I was recently put on it for medical reasons (started a week ago) and I was fine for the first couple days but I've been feeling terrible the past couple days.
I watched a "scary" movie on Tuesday and Wednesday (could only watch a short amount of it on Tuesday before I lost it). I've never had a problem watching scary movies before, I love them and I've watched many movies that have been supposedly "one of the scariest movies of all time." This one was one of those rated terribly for scariness and supposedly just like a stupid, dumb attempt at a scary movie. After watching it, I cannot sleep, I'm constantly checking door knobs (locked), shining a flashlight throughout the night (or whenever it's dark), flushing the toilet scares me beyond belief, then I jump, bump the wall or something, and get even more worked up. I take a shower and can't close my eyes because I'm watching for someone to come in and attack me or something, idk. I can't open the dresser because it sounds like one of the negative characters in the movie. One of the people on my floor (college dorm) walks and talks like another of the characters that turned bad during the duration of the movie.
I honestly cannot relax, I'm jumping all over, and the only thing I can think of that's different from the other movies I've watched is that I'm on BC now. I don't take any other medications with it. I can't go to the doctor for a month because I won't be going home (school is out of state). I just don't know how long I can deal with this or if it's even related. I've never been a nervous/jumpy person, I'm always super relaxed and nothing ever scares me so it's quite a bad change. I feel like the movie has nothing really to do with it, it may, but it's a movie that I would have watched 2 weeks ago and laughed about and now I'm scared out of my mind.
Thanks for any input!
