709686 tn?1277435759 I was hoping someone could tell me what the major symptoms for men are? I have had 4 CBC's done and each of them has returned telling me I am perfectly healthy...I still feel like garbage every day. I have had two tests done to see if I have celiacs diesase as I am no longer able to tollerate certain foods. According to those tests I do not have celiacs disease...I still feel like ****. Any help would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn 5 grams per day with breakfast) also reduced cortisol levels and improved responses in one test associated with anxiety and depression (measuring attention to positive and negative stimuli). These effects occurred with the use of a galactooligosaccharide prebiotic (Bimuno®-GOS) but not with a fructo-oligosaccharide prebiotic. However, neither prebiotic affected other aspects of stress or anxiety, nor improved working memory and executive functioning (Schmidt, Psychopharmacology 2014).
Avatar f tn like, instead of waking up and going straight to work I'd come in here and see what's going on. I know about the tired and worn out.. it's like you're a sponge that's fully saturated, just can't hold any more. Perhaps if you do something entirely different, something you've never done before.. anything from stamp collecting to having a boyfriend (uh, not saying you've never had a boyfriend, I just mean.. uh, never mind.. i b a dirty old man and lovin' it)..
Avatar f tn There is nothing shameful about taking anti-depressants and in lots and lots of cases they are absolutely necessary for becoming well. But nevertheless you don't want to go on them unless you have to - they take weeks to kick in, there are some side effects, there are withdrawal symptoms when going off them, adjusting symptoms when going on them - not terrible things, but things you don't want to deal with unless you have to. Also, try talking to your closer friends about it.
Avatar n tn I have been taking Paxil for depression and also participating in therapy. My significant other was told about this 2 months ago. I was reluctant to tell him because of negative comments he had made about medication. Since he was told he has been complaining that I am not as empathetic towards him and has even made comments that indicate that he is jealous of my therapist.
Avatar n tn When I was very stressed ( a really traumatic event was happening in my life and I tried to minimize it and so the stress was building up because I wasn't dealing with it) I got really sick with stress and anxiety and then depression followed.
449946 tn?1205493932 I was told my two doctors that I am suffering from Generalised Anxiety Disorder (GAD) and I would like to know what the symptoms are.
Avatar n tn I've dropped out of college because I'm suffering from depression and anxiety. I sit at home all day unmotivated, lethargic and feeling pathetic. I'm unable to get a job because I'm scared I'll get panic attacks! I'm putting on a lot of weight also. Not sure why I'm posting here, but it was nice to see other men suffering from this Is it really rare in men then? I read somewhere on the internet it was 1 in 1000 of us that have this?
Avatar m tn I am a gay male and I find in depression I need more "attention" I find untouchable straight males more attractive. Then get depressed they are untouchable. God forbid one responded the way it plays out in my mind. But yeah I have to agree sexuality is a blurry line. It is the risk that is the turn on not the preference. When I am running normal I find straight men rude and annoying (no offense but I do). Don't get my warped mind started on the ladies.
Avatar n tn He suggested I had depression. I've had chronic anxiety but don't feel depressed. We've tried a few SNRI's. It's been 2 1/2 months since tests results. I still have all my symptoms and fatigue is worse than ever. I stopped taking diet pills and vitamins. I respect and like my doctor a lot but really feel like it might be a hormone problem. It's been difficult to get an appointment with endocrinologist. they require a Dr. referral.
Avatar n tn Get answers, not anxiety. 5) While you're with your doctor, talk to him/her about your anxiety, depression and any other health concerns you have. In my humble opinion, I think you would greatly benefit from some therapy before these possible disorders have you by the throat. It is so much easier to deal with them NOW rather than years down the road. (Trust me on this one!
Avatar f tn I have also lost a lot of weight because of nerves and anxiety and new anti-depression meds (ie, not really eating very much, maybe 500 calories a day). Is this a bad sign too?
Avatar n tn I was told my problem was low blood pressure, then I was told it was post partum depression, and then I was told it was anxiety attacks, then last but not least I was told it was all in my head! I had my 4th child and ended up back in ER the day I was discharged from having her. I was compling about my heart. They wanted to put me in the physch ward for post partum depression. I left the hospital. They said there was nothing wrong with me They had ran a EKG and didnt see anything.
Avatar n tn its like a science test to see IF and only IF it'll work for you jumping from anti d to anti d and guess what, you STILL find yourself in intense panic attacks and anxeity. I'm sorry but the linkage between anxiety and depression makes not a whole lot of sense to me as I dont really feel that my anxiey is brought on from depression. Yes I have bouts with depression but I dont thing that brings my anxeity....
Avatar n tn there are different meds of course for different types of anxiety, depression ect...and to take the wrong one could be devistating to your mental health. call your dr and talk to him about what would be in your best interest.
Avatar n tn Diagnosed with this at 35 and it has progressed. Reported symptoms of anxiety, depression, and irritability to work and I was condemned with a Fitness for Duty Evaluation. I have very low test and have gone from .25 to .75 and now back to .50 Synthroid and was on one injection a wk. Have Endo in 4 weeks. Is there any information out there that symptoms are covered by the Americans with Disabilities Act to fight off uwarranted action from employer?
Avatar f tn I had a Copper 7 for years and did not experience any depression from it. I'm certainly not discounting anything that you may have uncovered, I just thought I'd share my personal experience with you. Good luck in uncovering the possible cause...and if you find out, share it with us...
Avatar f tn I am currently taking Wellbutrin (now for about 3 months)...it is not relieving my depression symptoms in the least. Talked to my doctor (psychiatrist) this afternoon and explained the situation to him. My symptoms read from the pages of a textbook....feeling depressed, feeling restless, difficulty concentrating, crying jags, unfounded feelings of worthlessness, feelings of sadness, loss of interest in normal daily things and things I used to enjoy, forgetfullness, easy mood changes etc.
Avatar m tn I think you need to seek the help of a psychiatrist for your symptoms and I recommend that you get evaluated for depression. I definitely see a problem with your health just as you do, but there is nothing more that can be offered to you from an endocrine point of view and no hormonal treatment is going to relieve your symptoms. I would also urge you to try meditation and/or yoga to reduce stress.
Avatar f tn Depression can be a symptom of hypothyroidism, and may indicate a need for adjustment in your medication. Many of us have suffered depression/anxiety when hypo. I, personally, was on anti-anxiety med for about a year; no longer need it. Please post your most current lab results, so members can better assess your testing/treatment. You should be getting test from Free T3, Free T4 and TSH every time you have labs.
Avatar n tn I rarely sleep more than four and a half hours a night. My mood is up and down in a moments' time. Anxiety is free floating and depression occurs at least once every day for an hour or so. I am quick to snap at my wife and our dogs. I have the shortest fuse. The smallest annoyances set me off. I can hardly focus on my work, but manage through it.
Avatar n tn the depression can last for months and months. buprenex only attaches to the pain receptors in your brain, which gives the pleasure receptors a chance to heal...plus it isn't filtered thru your liver, so it gives that a chance to heal. i don't know of the downfalls of this particular med...still waiting to find one. please please call a doctor - we all need someone...we really do.
Avatar f tn But before taking the pill, i was in great shocked after the minor surgery and i was in depression and anxiety. I went ahead to take the pill and first few months were horrible. I was up and down and i went to see a physician and i was given some anti-depressant. The Doc has stopped me from taking the anti-depressant and i thought everything will be fine. I was wrong, i am again anxious about anything and depressed about everything, couldnt sleep and that caused anxiety again..
1130576 tn?1260154370 what are some ways to deal with teens and depression and how do you read the signs that depression is near in a teen and how do you go about speaking to them.
Avatar m tn Ever since I could remember I was considered forgetful and flighty. Now that my depression and anxiety (severe depression usually causes some level of anxiety) are treated with meds and therapy my functioning is much higher. I have completely turned around my work situation and am turning around my social situations as well. Notice your function went down after you went off your meds. My doctor says the goal of depression treatment is complete remission. e.g.
484508 tn?1290014144 I finally went to my family doctor, who stated that my testosterone level is low--170, and told me to make an appt to come in. Is depression/anxiety a symptom of low testosterone, and are the side effects of testosterone therapy ones that will increase hypomanic symptoms. I am a little worried?
314892 tn?1264627503 I'm certainly not disputing that anxiety and depression can be and often are manifested by thyroid problems. I'm living breathing drugged up proof of it. My belief and hope is that if a person can find and maintain that perfect TSH within .75 one way or the other, eventually these and other "symptoms" will go away. But I can't offer any opinion from experience. It's been too confusing.
Avatar f tn The dizziness/light headiness has eased down but now Im feeling the other symptoms of anxiety. Maybe I have a combination of anxiety and allergies and the allergies triggers the anxiety, who knows really... I was very close to getting an MRI done because I thought I had a brain tumor that was causing me to feel this weird way...
Avatar m tn A womans clitoris has more nerves packed densly than a mans penis. More women struggle with anxiety and depression than men do. Could it be that maybe a woman is stimulated by her clitoris without sexual contact but from walking and when she is laying down on her side her clitoris is under pressure from her legs. It may not cause an orgasm but they without knowing it may be enough stimulation to cause the cronic fatigue many of them have.
