Avatar n tn Kate , Theres nothing wrong in asking advice in the third person especially in respect of the traumatic circumstances which led you to this forum. Rape is for each individual a personal issue . Drugs and alcohol may make you feel better whilst using because they make all your turmoil go away for a short period of time. Please please try not to endanger yourself by using substances which will harm you . Your feelings of worthlessness are a response to the trauma you have gone through.

Avatar n tn Im wondering does she have anxiety, or panic attacks, maby bi polar??? she used to cut, but she stopped a while back, and im wondering if anythings wrong?
Avatar n tn I have been getting these anxiety attacks in the middle of the night. I go to bed at 10:00 or 11:00 and I wake up at 3:00 or 4:00. My mind starts spinning out of control with overwhelming thoughts and can not shut it down. I drink my self to sleep every night but never had a problem with it before. Now I am under a lot of pressure and stress for I may lose my job and then my house in which I have invested $600,000 all of my life’s savings I live in the house which is still under construction.
2126606 tn?1346348724 Within the past few years, many state health departments nationwide have been reporting rises in heroin use and overdoses in teens. The Missouri Health Department saw heroin overdoses jump from 69 cases in 2007 to 244 cases in 2011, with more than half of all heroin-associated deaths claiming individuals between the ages of 15 and 35. In New Mexico, heroin has become the fastest growing drug problem, surpassing cocaine and meth.
784382 tn?1376934640 My mind goes and goes and goes but that is okay because the thoughts are not causing me anxiety. When something particularly bothersome comes in, I just replace that thought with something positive. I have learned alot from reading books about self-communication that were not available 17 years ago. As far as medications go, they will all probably work to some degree when given a chance. It is the side affects that might make a drug unsuable for you.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if there were any natural ways to get rid of the panic attacks quicker? I’ve tried looking up ways to stop anxiety attacks from happening in the first place, but haven’t found anything. If anyone knew a way that I could deal with it without going to my parents, that would be great. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I also have recent anxiety, panic attacks and I hate it!!! I am an avid exerciser however the attacks have spilled over into my workouts and sometimes being overtired form working out can cause more panic. I am looking into ThetaHealing which concentrates on removing old negative patterns and replaces them with normal healthy patterns. Not tried it yet so can't give you a report. I have also contacted a Hypnotherapist who specializes in anxiety ......hey, I'll give anything a try.
Avatar f tn i have a 15 year old who has had 3 or 4 anxiety attacks always seem to stem from her feeling overwhelmed at school so we see a therapist once a week to learn techniques to deal with it before it becomes a a attack, so the therapist thought maybe she could use some medicine which i assume she meant zanax she said sometimes people feel better just knowing they have them i said lady my daughter is 15 she cant carry that around at school or any where for that matter so we see the psychiatrist now h
Avatar n tn I, too, worried that I was creating anxiety in them and I worried constantly about having an attack in front of them. It was hard enough raising two rowdy boys, but living with this fear just drained me. Sometimes I would give them a popcicle when the attack hit and hope that would focus their attention away from me. When my oldest was around 7 or 8, I had a talk with him about my "funny little fits." I don't remember exactly what I told him now, it was so many years ago.

Avatar f tn He said it was anxiety. After that I started getting chest pains, they were sharp and would never be in the same place the next day, I got them in my back and on my side and sometimes in the middle of my chest.(these pains never happen together, after a while another pain comes and the other goes). When I came back home from holiday I visited a 3rd doctor and he said that a lot of teenagers come to him with such symptoms and it's probably anxiety.
Avatar f tn You really need to find a medical specialist with experience in anxiety disorders - perhaps one of your doctors could give you a name - perhaps a child psychiatrist or child neurologist or even a child psychologist (although this person would be unable to prescribe medication). I also suspect your daughter is suffering from depression (anxiety is often co-morbid with depression) - possibly the reason your daughter cries a great deal of the time.
Avatar n tn He switched to generic a few months ago, but he says the increase in anxiety does not correlate with the switch. Thank you for your help.
Avatar f tn I am only 17 years old with no knowledge in the science psychology but I do have anxiety. What you described does not sound like an anxiety disorder. Again I am not educated and can not diagnose you but it sounds like a "mild" case of depression. Next time you see a therapist you should definitely ask many them questions and voice your concerns so they can tell you what you might be feeling.
Avatar f tn What I've discovered from reading all the posts is that it is probably related to my anxiety. I had anxiety issues when I was in high school and I am having them again now in my 30's. For 10 years plus, though, I didn't have any. What I know is that during that time, I was "other focused" rather than "self focused." After a cancer scare and some major turmoil in my life, I started re-evaluating and really trying to decide what to do with my life.
Avatar f tn So i got scared when that happen so i refuse to take any, and because of that i tell my docotrs im allergic to all pain meds. It makes me have anxiety attacks, and just to think of having to take one, makes me have a panic attack. Im scared that i wont wake up from the drugs. So as far as medical history. i ve had 3 c-section 92,94,96 gallbladder in 96, hysterectomy in 04 just my uterus. 2006 a UPPP for sleep apnea, 2006 emergency surgery to repair a hemerage fom my UPPP surgery.
280891 tn?1261016650 3 and 1/2 years ago, I started experiencing anxiety and anxiety attacks, after my father passed away. Went to my GP who rx'd me 0.5mg Ativan, 2x a day. Helped for 6 months, and then I needed more. Was put on 1 mg, 2-3x a day. A few months go by, and I realize that it is not working, yet again. I understand benzo tolerance, and how it affects your GABA receptors and how the ore you use, your body tries to get rid of it more quickly. So I'm aware of why this happened.
Avatar f tn Moms, please if your son has this issue please get them tested for the MTHFR mutation before too much time passes. It seems that in the majority of the boys that have this major depression/anxiety sets in around 18 yrs of age. (This happened to my son) We are now seeing a wonderful DR that has put him on Deplin.
Avatar n tn The best way to describe the sound is like a stomach growling, only in the throat. It's incredibly embarrassing and I can't prevent it from happening. It tends to happen a lot after I drink juice or soda, but also sometimes after meals where I only drank water. Along with the gurgle I feel some light pressure in my lower throat, near my collarbone, like there's air trying to get out (no pain).
Avatar n tn but the majority of times blood came out in the sperm, or only after ejaculation during urination, or both in the sperm and the urine. once i woke up without having had sex that week and urinated blood. i tested my blood, sperm, and urine and the only abnormality was a high psa level. my dr said it is very rare and is that high in 40/50 year old. i did a biopsy for prostate cancer and my dr said that everything was ok. after the biopsy, i waqs back to normal.
Avatar n tn He said that the scans don't show any cause for this to be happening and it looks like it is curving in rather than the bone thinning in that area. At this point it isn't affecting my brain, so he wants me to repeat the scans in October and come back so he can see if there are any changes. Keep in touch if you find anything out about yours. and feel free to send me a message in my inbox - I have a watch on this post and my inbox and I recieve an email whenever anyone posts to it.
Avatar n tn I've tried researching probable causes since I know these attacks are real. Can anyone help me? Are these anxiety attacks? Are these symptoms of the heart valve problem that I've read about where teenagers have dropped dead (usually during athletics)??? I know there is a problem but no one seems to be able to help me.
Avatar n tn About 48 hours ago, I noticed this heat sensation in my left shin. At first I thought I was standing too close to a heat vent in the floor at work! It is a warm, sort of tingly sensation that lasts 5 seconds and occurs, I don't know, 10 times throughout the day. I wonder if I slept on the leg funny?? Stress?? I am 43 and in reasonably good health but seem to be a hypochondriac (spelling?) at times.
Avatar f tn I have be misdiagnosed and over medicated, under medicated and now “It’s all in my head” Now if I repeat their words to them they say “My pain is valid but I need to consider their Pain Rehab Center” “Because I have chronic pain and will most likely for the rest of my life.” I am asking myself, “I do and if I do why?” I have almost every classic symptom of MS that come and go. Every new “Flare” as you call them I get a new symptom. But I also have a few Mild TBI’s and I have Bi-polar.

Avatar m tn Anyway so here I sit on the couch and for the first time in 3 years I have no pills... hard to belive huh? me to. I was a spoiled lil brat only child and I didnt come from a well off family but I never wanted for n e thing. The word "NO" was not in my vocabulary. But now that all my money is gone and all my bills are stacked up and all my utilities are about to be shut off and all my things of any value are in pawn I am left with no choice but to sit here and take it.
511019 tn?1214340923 Between panic attacks, his anxiety seems well managed. Mary doesn't experience panic attacks in the same way as my husband, but is consistently fearful throughout the entire day. She only speaks with family members, but prefers to communicate in sign language. In some situations she cannot communicate at all because of her Selective Mutism. She follows me around the house every moment she can, and offers to help me with many family chores.
Avatar f tn I just wish there was a name for it. I know it's not anxiety or panic attacks because I don't feel upset or scared or even stressed. Like many have said, it just hits me when things are calm and quiet or when I'm not doing much. I've always been a rather calm person.
