Avatar n tn We now realize the stress of school and a strange city cause here to cylce through restricting again, and the depression and anxiety have returned. She has not been able to break this cycle, so she will soon start seeing another therapist. All of her therapists have had varying degrees of experience with anorexic patients but most have not had a soecialty in this field I feel she should take time off from graduate school and enter a residency program.

Avatar m tn I am a College student currently struggling with his academics, motivation, concentration, and what I now suspect is an anxiety-forced apathy and depression towards the world that has been present since grade-school. Probably the worst thing about this all is that I don't know if I'm just being dramatic and looking for excuses for laziness, or if I have a serious problem; this fear eats at me incessantly (which, may be a sign of another problem...).
1334561 tn?1277236886 I personally do not smoke anything, but with the growing debate centered around medical marijuana and its uses, I'm curious about this as depression and anxiety are sometimes cited as conditions it can help. I googled "marijuana and bipolar disorder", and I got quite a few interesting hits. It seems that while there are very few studies currently being conducted specifically on the effects of the drug on individuals with bipolar disorder, there are at least a few anecdotal reports.
Avatar m tn I play my favorite music and sing allong, also if you have a special occasion coming up or a special project that you can think about helps me. The first thing I do is recognize that it is anxiety and I am ok and it will soon pass. Believe me I have pulled off a few times to get back my bearings. It helps when I have someone riding with me so I can talk with them. I did not understand my anxiety until I went to therapy. Therapy has really made me get a better understanding of my anxiety world.
Avatar n tn Dear Dizzy Folks, A relative of mine has vertigo. Anxiety and depression accompany this, because vertigo in and of itself is scary, plus it keeps a person from doing regular stuff. I found it most interesting that two posters here mentioned neck or head injury perhaps contributing to vertigo. My relative got a crick in his neck, that's when the vertigo started, and ten years later, still a painful neck and still the vertigo.
Avatar f tn Medication can alleviate some of the symptoms of depression and anxiety but it's by no means a solution. I think of myself as quite a logical guy. I know that if I stay in my house all day that nothing good is going to happen. But that still doesn't make it any easier, does it? I also recommend checking out a thing called the personality enneagram. Judging by your description I'd say you're a 4 or 5 although it's still good to check it out.
Avatar n tn i myself am currently trying to get back on adderall. I have add, and depression, from bipolar, and my doc put me on adderall for the depression. this however was before i was diagnosed w/bipolar! now that the diagnosis has changed, every doctor i see wants to put me on something else... why? The adderall worked just fine for me... it was like an overnight change. The only reason i went off was because of no med coverage.
791533 tn?1309748944 I hadn't been formally diagnosed with anything other than major depression and anxiety. The fear of the entire experience of being locked in a mental ward for 48 hours with these old women who had been locked in there for weeks or months--yet still not able to function made me promise to myself that when I went to see my new regular outpatient psychiatrist that no matter how hard it was going to be, I'd tell him or her honestly everything I could.
Avatar m tn I could never be alone. It was awful. So from 19 to 23 I had no anxiety. I drove to los angeles from maryland by myself when I was 21. I flew to london alone. I flew back and forth from la to dc all the time with no problems. Then out of the blue when I was 24 my anxiety came back and hasn't left and I'm about to be 26 in a week. Its not as bad as it was when I was younger but it still can interfere with my life. I've been doing talk therapy and have been taking .
Avatar f tn I am currently medically stable but have been struggling for three years with hypothyroid symptoms( constant fatigue, brain fog,cold hands, slow motor skill, anxiety and depression worse, and a couple other symptoms) despite my bmi being normal, and proper nutrition.

Avatar f tn The side effects are much more exagerated then what I remember. Severe anxiety, depression and extreme senistivity to touch. I was to start with 50 mg a day...and increase from there. I just can't. I am at 25 right now, and will slowly up to 50...And then on hopefully. But I am wondering why I am having such a hard time. I am also taking Pristiq. Wonder if that has anything to do with it? Anyone else taking Pristiq and Topamax? Had the same issues? Would love to know.

Avatar f tn Celexa helps decrease depression, obsessive compulsive behavior and anxiety giving you more of a chance to effectively deal with your food and your life. Years of an eating disorder can take a toll on your body causing metabolism problems. In addition, it is crucial to get your period activated. Your weight may be healthy or it may be too low for your period to start. I’m hoping you have a medical doctor in which you can address your medical concerns.

Avatar n tn I am also going into menopause and may contribute some of my anxiety to that, but I believe in my soul that the Percs are a problem for me. It has been two days with nothing, and I feel like I have the worse flu. Stomach, headache, tired, is awful. When I think about taking one I do a few deep breathing excercises.
Avatar n tn BP and HR, as my docs tell me, has always been normal. On the monitor, my highest HR was 155 and my lowest was 54. I asked about this since it came up Tachycardia and Brachycardia on the results but the EP said it was "normal" and the high rate was due to anxiety most likely, even though I told him it was after exertion (exercise, climbing stairs, cleaning, etc...)...yes, very frustrating. Just got one quick THUMP in my throat as I was typing this. HATE IT!!!!
Avatar n tn These individuals are few and far between, there is one in Boston, one here at the Cleveland Clinic and one in Los Angeles that I know of. There may be a subtle dysfunction in the inner ear that by special testing one can pick up.
Avatar f tn I don't know you but if you are coming to this forum I believe that you want to do that. Anxiety and depression play a huge role in eating disorders. I don't really know anyone that has an eating disorder that does not suffer from some kind of mood problem. You are not alone though and you can beat this. Believe in yourself, want this. If you want to tell me the city that you live in, I will also help you find a meeting. Totally not stalker style. I am in Denver.

Avatar n tn I was prescribed an anti-depressent which has a side effect of weight gain when I sought treatment from a doctor, however I stopped taking it and of course the weight fell right off and then some. I am really bothered by the looks and the comments I get from people and just want to look healthy. Could you please give me some direction in my quest to gain weight? Thank you so much!
Avatar n tn I suffer from low confidence and depression and I think a big part of this is to do with my previous use of ecstasy. I also suffer from anxiety in certin situation which can be very severe. I used to take citalopram but wanted to be free from medication and as such have been presciption free for about 2 months - but my mood is of such depression that I feel that life is not worh living if I continue in this way.
