Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety relief tapes

anxiety

I have been dealing with anxiety for eight years, normally I can deal with it, I have been on medication for about six years. About 4 weeks ago my doctor took me off of klonapin 0.5mg once a day. Im still on cymbolta 60mgs. once a day, but my anxiety is terrible, today so far the worst. Everything seems like it is in a fog. Im really irratible, can't focus, can't go out in public, because I fill like im twiching and everyone is looking at me.
I have seen clients who have purchased thousands of dollars of books, tapes, etc..; They still suffer from anxiety today and often are getting worse because they spent years trying to solve their anxiety without getting treatment for it. I think a healthy dose of skepticism should always be applied to any book, program or person who would tell that anxiety is just a state of confusion or a manifestation of wrong thinking.
Hi, i just started lexapro 5mg 6 days ago, the last two days i started to feel dizzy, but no relief to my anxiety or my irratibility. i never realy had any major side effects other than a headache the first day, now i seem to have develpoed a cold about 3 days into treatment, i'm not sure if the meds caused it but my nose is blocked up. i was wondering if upping the dose to 10mg would help.
I have been suffering with anxiety for 29 yrs. now. I have seen doctors, tried bio-feedback and antidepressants. My biggest problem is that I am allergic to anti-depressants. I have tried every anti-depressant under the sun and have had terrible side effects. My tongue swells up, my throat closes up, my eyes feel like they are going to explode and every muscle in my body aches. Not to mention my blood pressure drops. Every doctor I have seen has told me you can't take anti-depressants ! DA !
Hi. Approx 1yr ago I began feeling extremely tired, fatigued, lost my appetite and just didn't feel right - one major change in me was that I didn't want to go anywhere or didnt want any visitors, I also started having "episodes" which involved feeling nauseous, bouts of diarrhea, fuzzy thinking, massive rushes of negative energy/ adrenal rushes during which I thought I was going to die.
Hi Julie~Well, I can honestly say I think your problems are coming from the anxiety. Anxiety can bring all kinds of problems to us, and what you are describing sure seems like a good case of anxiety to me. I usually appear calm on the outside too, but inside, oh my, I am a mess. The more scared I get, the quieter I get, and I have all the symptoms you posted. It seems when things are going well, or at least better, I do not notice the PAC's or have the symptoms of panic.
Anxiety (if that's what it is) You will get through it, you are so smart to be educating yourself and working on it you will learn so much and your options are numerous.
I can't really say anything about the anxiety subsiding or not since I haven't been on it that long, but I'll check back in on this post in the next week or so. Best way to help anxiety is to do the relaxation technique tapes, and / or talk to a psychologist. In my opinion of course... Best of luck to you.
It does not mean you have a lasting problem but it may be a good idea to talk to your Dr before your next appt about AD’s. I take Lexapro for my depression and anxiety. If you need relief at the time of an attack take Zanax, Valium, Ativan or Klonopin. I hope this information helps you. Let me know if you need more clarification. Dana.
I just purchased some tapes about dealing with anxiety/stress/depression from the Midwest Center and on one of the tapes the doctor said that approximately 85% of the patients that came to him about their anxiety also had underlying depression. So it sounds like they do walk hand in hand. I think perhaps it has to do with negative thinking. That's what these tapes are supposed to help me with. Hope you find relief soon. PS: I would also recommend exercise to help with your depression.
So I was told I was fine and that my problem was anxiety. Do you think that I should be worried about the elongated valve? Can that cause these symptoms? The thing is I have become so focused on my heart all day long that any little thing I feel scares me. So after 2 years of living in fear of having my heart race I went to another cardiologist who just listened to my heart and said that I have mitral valve prolapse.
Loads of people have panic/anxiety attacks. That's why there are so many books on the subject now - and tapes of helpful techniques. But I believe that while it's good to use a helpful technique to get control of these upsetting symptoms, it's most important to start dealing with what's going on under the surface with you.
Mindfulness practice is also very helpful and you can find many books and tapes on this for depression and anxiety. I would recommend The Mindful Way through Depression (comes with a great yoga, meditation, body scan CD) by Jon Kabit-Zinn, Zindel Segal, Mark Williams and Jon Teasdale. I also use the yoga/meditation CDs by Jon Kabat-Zinn which are amazing. http://mindfulnesstapes.com I use the Series one CDs almost everyday. He is a leader in the field of mindfulness and depression.
I'm 26 y/o. When I was 20, I started getting massive panic attacks on a daily basis. For about 2-3 years, they remained untreated, and I was getting panic attacks at least 3 times a day (full blown attacks). I purchased the Midwest Program for Anxiety & Depression, and I overcame my panic attacks. However, I was left with unresolved symptoms. I get dizzy upon standing up, I'm ultra sensitive in stores.
I was wondering if annyone has ever gone through any neurofeedback (neurotherapy), biofeedback, or hypnosis to help treat their anxiety or depression? I have been on meds and none of them seem to be extremely effective. I am considering neurotherapy especially and maybe hypnosis because I am becoming desperate. Has anyone ever had any good from these? Is it worth my time? Also, how much can it be without insurance? Anyone know? I need help. phsychotherapy can only get me so far.
I think calcium magneum supplements and fish oil help me the most. Fish oil and calcium are for anxiety. I also have been using relaxation tapes. How are you doing today? My heart goes out to you. I am a 42 year old mom with little kids and this is messing up my life. I have the same symtoms as you. Hang in there!
yeah i was diagnosed with anxiety and that comes along with stress. ive had this lump problem for about a month now. How did you relive this?
When I was suffering sooo bad with PA's and anxiety...I would have moved heaven and earth for relief...ANY relief. The quicker you accept this...the quicker you will actually feel better...and ALLLL of these symptoms that plague you will be a distant memory. You won't know till you try. Pick up the phone, make an appt.....or ask your doc for a psych referral...you've waited long enough. Do it NOW. I really hope you do.
Hi. I've posted here several times before about my difficulties with Anxiety/Depression related issues. My update is that about 3 week ago I've reduced the Zoloft from 100 MG to 50 MG, on my own, also seconded by my psychiatrist. It seemed to have no effect. I've been taking .25 Mg of Xanax every day to enforce daily treatment, but found myself increasing the dosage. It seems like I have to take a higher dose of Xanax to achieve the relief I once had by taking a smaller dose.
Hey guy, thanks again for your post. Sounds like your crying spells were similar to mine from a physical perspective -- however, mine always had a sense of hopelessness to them -- like the future was bleak, or that I had lost the energy to do the things I used to do. You see, I used to be a very confident guy -- always going, always planning, always talkative, never thinking of this condition that has affected me know.
i must look into that workbook. i got this thing called the 'Linden method' its like anxiety tapes and stuff but never really did much ( cost 500$) how long does the relief from taking xanax once, last? i was thinking maybe if i could take it before work it would let me at least get there without being a nervous wreck and through maybe some of the day and then i would calm alittle bit.
In addition, sufferers tend to avoid or put off needed visits to physicians and dentists, and they may develop other health problems. In reality, all of the above are solutions designed to escape the doubt and anxiety, but they only end up helping in the short run. Unfor-tunately, in the long run, as sufferers use these methods, they only train themselves to be better avoiders who keep their fears going.
I don't know what is going on here. I started to get some anxiety when I was in college. (About 4 yrs ago) I would have a really hard time falling asleep and worry b/f bed. That passed. Then, about 2 years ago, I had a really bad panic attack out of the clear blue. I was at a resteraunt and had a burger. I started getting stomach pains and I swore I was going to die right there from food poisoning or something. It was awful. But it passed completely about 45 minutes later.
En route to the hospital, I received adenosine for the first time and the fast rhythm broke immediately. Such a relief! Even more of a relief was receiving a diagnosis from the EMT - he said I had something called SVT - and they had the tracer tapes to prove it. It was so validating to know I was not imagining things and my medical problem was finally diagnosed and had a name.
I guess it depends on how badly you want to get better? I still have the tapes and just knowing I have them eases my anxiety to this day. I am now 31, and I don't have panic attacks anymore (knock on wood). It's all thanks to this program. I do still feel anxious, but I know how to control the feeling. Really, anxiety is all related to your thoughts, and if you know how to control them life will be much more pleasant.
I have some very good relaxation and self-hypnosis tapes on anxiety that help alot. I also had some hypnosis and learned that to keep the anxiety levels down. I also have an odd thing where I get real strong back muscle tics/twitches, and at the same time, I will "throw" a PVC/PAC! It's been documented on an EKG this happens. I also have Fibromyalgia, which makes anxiety and also from what I have read, having palpitations, more common.
I know from myself tapes of music and Meditation tapes by Belleruth Naparstek have been very helpful. No one said it would be easy but if does get better. Good luck and let us know how your doctors appointment went.
I really appreciate everyones input. Before I signed back on to the post I was in the shower and I decided to flush the pills. I read a post earlier that stated after she flushed the pills she wanted to chase them down the septic. I felt that way. I also remember that IF I need to take them, the doctor will be the deciding factor in that equation. Not me. I think I am over the worse part, except for energy/sleeping.
