Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety disorder mayo


Avatar n tn A physician at Mayo Clinic said the surgery is rarely performed on someone with diagnosed anxiety disorder. Is there a clinical practice guideline that states this, or is it a known fact among Gastroenterologists?
Avatar n tn hi i'll try to make it short- well ive had anxiety disorder since this january. and i havent taken any medications (yet!) i do get very dizzy or feel like im running out of breath whenever i get nervous, scared.etc and Yes, is ometimes do feel like its not the stress or anxiety, but some brain issues, anyhow, im trying to overcome these problems by myself, without taking medications. i strongly believe that u should take some time and try to relax...
696755 tn?1236019912 I did look up on the Mayo Clinic site to see what they had to say about Conversion Disorder and one of the symptoms they had listed there was hallucinations. So I don't know if that helps you out some or not. Conversion Disorder is just very vast in the way it expresses itself. With me my symptoms are just all over the place. My hand will do some weird twisty movements and poses and then sometimes it will just shake around.
Avatar f tn He does have anxiety problems, as do I but hes managed to deal with it with some medication. Lately, his prostate has been severely inflamed, Urologist has upped his dosage of Flomax but he is still miserable. can't urinate sometimes. Also, he has severe dry eye and the eye doc said it was the worst he has ever seen. Eye doc put him on prednisone drops and put implants in his tear ducts,none which have really helped.
Avatar f tn MS is actually one of the most common conditions people with mental health issues eg health anxiety, conversion disorder etc become concerned about and many people who have a dx of MS, have actually had their mental health fully assessed as part of the diagnostic process. It is always advisable when the mental health card is put on the table, to have that theory fully investigated so it can be removed or if it is M/H, then better treated.
Avatar n tn People looking to diagnose their problem and are surprised when they find out just how common this anxiety is. I too had no aparent reason to suffer from general anxiety disorder. I have always been seen as a rock. Very solid, grounded, reasonable...blah, blah, blah...but guess what! The heart tests, stress tests, even had the numbness of fingers. If that doesnt convince you that you are about to kick it, nothing will!
4587140 tn?1356853647 I am 38 years old and will give some background as I have spent days and hours reading through the posts and questions in this forum which have given me the courage to tell my story: On March 4 2012 I woke up to get ready for work and put my feet on the ground and fell, my husband of course helped me up and got me to the couch, he asked me what was going on and I stumbled with my speech to tell him I could not feel my right leg and my vision was like tunnel vision, I asked him to make me a cup
Avatar n tn I got a tattoo and had the same fear. It's part of having an anxiety disorder. I'm smart enough to know the chances are Sooo slim but it still worries me.
605877 tn?1301704246 M4YOU - I have been to a trauma councellor in the past and my sessions ended in April. I have been diagnosed with a moderately severe anxiety disorder. Taking your and my boyfriends advice I;ve made an appointment with the doctor on Monday. So thank you for your reply. wondering _ i really know where you are coming from. why is it that we fear getting sick when ironically our fear probably makes us sick. I forgot that green tea has caffeine, my doctor encouraged me to drink it.
Avatar m tn Wow! I am REALLY sorry my post frightened you so badly. I honestly thought it would help calm you down to know what kind of anxiety you are dealing with. I definitely agree with don't worry_behappy that you need to take some deep breaths and have a complete physical evaluation to rule out any underlying causes for your anxiety. I am NOT a doctor nor a psychiatrist, but one needn't have those degrees to understand that you are a hypochondriac.
393587 tn?1211056644 27 yr. old F, unhealthy since birth. w/ sinusitis every few weeks, illness always abnormally severe. c. pox @ 5 lasted 2 weeks, w/ temp of 104+, hallucenations, & pox over my entire body, scalp & genitals. at 14, a heart arrhythmia w/ tachycardia & PVC's was found. 1 halter showed 22,000 PVC's in 24 hrs. the cardio. DX'd it as congenital & EP study came back normal. i suffer w/ severe depression & anxiety since age 12, tried almost every SRI, w/ no relief.
Avatar f tn When I researched Conversion Disorder because your post is so moving, the Mayo Clinic website said it's almost always connected with a traumatic event, but almost always isn't always. There are almost no nevers or always. But a second opinion on the Conversion Disorder might not be a bad idea and I'm again hoping they checked you thoroughly for vascular problems. I am seeing a bright side here -- conversion disorder would be better than dementia from the lesions or MS, right?
Avatar m tn i just had a feeling of a small warm burst in my stomach (most likely gas) but my anxiety has kicked in again.. and when i get anxiety, if i was to stare at something i almost feel unreal.. as if im not in my body and am just spectating, even if i watch my hands as i type this, i feel like im just watching hands... am i the only one who experiences anxiety in such a way?
396099 tn?1216258586 Any thoughts or additional info? Coping with anxiety disorder can be difficult. But treatments — such as medications and psychotherapy — can help. In addition, there are several things you can do on your own to reduce your anxiety, including watching what you eat. This includes eating a balanced diet, taking nutritional supplements as appropriate, and limiting or avoiding foods that may cause or mimic anxiety.
1345426 tn?1276457456 I thought I had a never ending bout of gastritis, ibs, and reflux disorder because thats what Navy docs said. Mayo confirmed that I have a healthy body. I now am dealing with these new symptoms so I will go to the doc just to be sure it isnt really a physical problem this time. I will let everyone know what he says. I read many other peoples complaints and I sure wish the doctors could figure out how to help all of us.
Avatar f tn My partner is nervous to have a noisy snack by me on case i bite his head off! Not literally obviously. Is this part of anxiety and depression ? Or Is this along with what i said in my previous post about memory loss, bad headaches and costant tiredness something awful because when i go to the doctors i feel as though I'm getting fobbed off as i have more than one thing to talk about theres not enough time.
Avatar f tn I am a 17 yr old female in good health, I suffer from chronic sinusitis and allergies, I also have an anxiety problem. This summer I began to experience stress headaches on the top of my head....about 6 weeks ago my right eyelid became puffy (I'm not sure if it was actually drooping).
Avatar m tn We spent a couple of hours talking and she had me take some anxiety/depression tests, which I scored pretty low on, and she told me that she didn't feel as though I fit into the conversion disorder category. She also told me that she didn't know how she could help me because of this. She asked me what my next step is going to be, and quite honestly I don't know where to go from I find another neuro and start from scratch or just wait for another symptom to appear?
Avatar f tn I also get dizzy/vertigo and tingling sensation on face legs and hands and nausea.
Avatar f tn I do have health anxiety...I've been to mayo and been checked out by a rheumatologist and a neuro and they also assure me that I'm perfectly healthy. However, I can't shake the fear of having a serious health issue, like ms, and the bladder issues just won't go away. Can anxiety do this?
Avatar n tn I have had the full run of tests (twice over) and all have come back clear (have not had cath). I am have been told anxiety and have fought that diagnosis for a long time. I tried Lexapro which did nothing for the chest pain. Anyway, I have not been feeling 100% for a while and have just "dealt" with it because I knew I've had a really good workup by more than one cardio. Today is different.
Avatar n tn I touched on my experiences with Anxiety Disorder in another thread, but found this one after, and it is so ironically similar to my experience, that I wanted to comment. I was having symptoms so bad, that I thought I was having a heart attack. I was in denial, but my father and uncle had both died young from heart disease, so I didn't want to go and find out I was about to die.
Avatar n tn Thanks for your post . I feel blessed to find this information so early in my diagnosis of an "Anxiety Disorder" I was having muscle spasms in my chest over my heart area for weeks, which obviously bothered me and made me ask the question, "Am I having heart problems" . Until two weeks ago I was laying in bed almost a sleep when all of a sudden I got clammy, then drenched in sweat. I grabbed my chest because It felt extremly tight and my left shuolder and arm went numb.
464551 tn?1207633959 I've been experiencing anxiety, I think for a few years now, but even moreso lately. I have been through a lot in my marriage and my family, to the point where I just don't feel myself anymore. I won't go into too much detail about that but my whole family has been a mess ever since my dad divorced my mom three years ago. And my marriage is falling apart. One night my husband was upset with me and hit me with a rolled up piece of paper.
Avatar n tn I do remember a burning feeling inside my body, just under the surface of the skin. This symptom was largely ignored. I then was consulted at the Mayo Clinic. I saw several doctors there and had a five-star workup. My Neurological examination in 2007 was as follows: speech, higher mental functions, language, cranial nerves normal. [i]I was observed with a very mild static and action tremor without significant terminal accentuation in both upper extremities.
171867 tn?1271047748 I've been to the many, many docs and even the Mayo Clinic for help. All my tests are clear. I used to think that it couldn't be anxiety because I had no anxiety, stress or hardships in my life. I would hear that a divorce, a death or abuse could all cause anxiety to come on. I had none of those, just a pain that I thought was heart related that went into a full on panic attack. Everyday I feel something.
Avatar f tn I had a year and a half of stomach aches, severe acid reflux that had to sleep sitting up in bed for 3 months, severe bloating, diarrhea, constipation, anxiety, 4 panic attacks, humming off and on in my ears, smelling strange smells, sinus attacks, eyes wattering and itching, anal and vaginal area gets dry and have itching attacks, nauseau sometimes in am, throat itching spells, some bloating to sever bloating at night - look like I am 3 months pregnant, get air pockets in stomach as can feel
183202 tn?1219857259 I am not a mediacal professional but it really does sound like an anxiiety based disorder. Anxiety can do the most amazing things to our bodies, and many a times I myself have thought I would surely die from the symptoms I was suffering and have gone to the ER on numerous occasions also. I myself found zoloft to be the worst antidepressant in the world as it made my body speed up and hence all the crazy thoughts that go through ones head that they are going to die.
Avatar f tn I can't do this because my anxiety disorder was a phobia problem, and it's far worse now and now it's not treatable. Try to find someone who works in addiction treatment, a top doc, because that's where docs run into the long-term effects of drugs that affect brain neurotransmitters and see if anyone has found anything new about it. Now, I'm not an expert, what happened to me doesn't happen much, and bad drug reactions that produce lasting problems like yours are probably rare as well.
Avatar f tn Hello I am a 22 year old female dealing with what I think might be Depersonalization Disorder. This past June my body shut down. I was stuck in bed for about 4 months. No body could figure out what it was. I couldn't eat, I couldn't stay upright for more then a few minutes, all I could do was sleep and even that was hard because my dreams were so vivid I hated sleeping. It was all around bad news.
