Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety disorder mayo clinic


Avatar f tn Something is attacking his system and finally his nephrologist has referred him to the Mayo Clinic here in Scottsdale. His test for Sjodger's syndome (sorry, wrong spelling) came back neg too since one of his docs thought it could be this. He is a wreck over this and is frustrated. Lupus test also came back neg. Can anyone comment on this? Thank you.
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 I have actually had tons of tests over the past three years, bloodwork many times, many digestive system tests, even a fundoplication surgery. Went to the Mayo Clinic for an evaluation because I have been so sick. Only functional problems have been diagnosed. I have tried a few antidepressants, Paxil, Luvox, Olanzapine, none of them helped my physical symptoms. A doctor tells me they haven't worked as they aren't the right ones for me. What kind of physical symptoms were you having?
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 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 4 days later I got a letter that they suggested I get a second opinion and that I should go to the Mayo Clinic.....when I went to my GP he was shocked to see my condition as he had not seen me since 2009 ....He did an exam and said I needed to see another neurogoist....I decided to go to the MS center of Atlanta....again another neuro exam - told the problem was in the spine and a full spinal MRI was ordered with and without contrast, before the appt ...
Avatar n tn Yes, as a matter of fact, I DO have experience with these types of questions. And a very great deal of that information I have learned from one of THE most educated and knowledgeable people I know on the subject Teak. That you could read his profile, learn the man is living with AIDS, teaches HIV/AIDS awareness classes and was a paramedic for many, many years, and then ask him which website he got his information from...........!!!!!
605877 tn?1301704246 including a trip across the country to the mayo clinic, and i just got back from a breast specialist because i was convinced it has been breast cancer all this time (7 months) and we didn't think to look there. well. practical advice: stop drinking caffeine (like green tea) when you are particularly stressed. it increases nervousness. exercise every day, as hard as you are able to without getting overtired. let yourself feel what you feel, instead of pushing it away. be scared.
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.
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 They can be extremely frightening when we don't know what they are or what is causing them. The Mayo Clinic has written........"The exact cause of depersonalization-derealization disorder isn't well-understood. However, it appears to be linked to an imbalance of certain brain chemicals called neurotransmitters, which can make a brain vulnerable so that heightened states of stress and fear may lead to the disorder.
396099 tn?1216258586 I found the following information on the Mayo Clinic Website. I would have thought that protiens would be preffered to Carbs. Even if I'm eating breads i stoll seem to get jittery. 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.
Avatar f tn If you can afford it, there are doctors who will do a better job -- a practitioner of integrated medicine, a functional physician, places like the Mayo Clinic or Johns Hopkins if you can travel and can afford it. if you do have anxiety and depression, though, and you know it, what are you doing to treat it?
Avatar f tn Print out some information on the computer about hypochondria from places like the Mayo Clinic, the Cleveland Clinic, UCLA, Mass General and the American Mental Health Association. I'm sure if they understand that you are suffering from a REAL disorder and not just seeking attention, or whatever they think, I'm sure they will get you the help you need. As a parent myself, I can promise you that we'd sell our souls if it would make our children well and happy again.
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 I virtually NEVER tell anyone to Goggle anything, but if you go to the Mayo Clinic website, do some reading on anxiety/panic attack and their symptoms. I think that will ease your mind somewhat. Or spend some time reading posts on this forum and you'll soon see that your symptoms are very common. IF and when you have another attack, put a cold towel on your head, lay down and concentrate on your breathing. Take long, slow deep breaths and exhale through your mouth.
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 n tn Does this type or similar disorders EVER go away? Like I've said before, I left the Mayo Clinic feeling pretty good about my health. I felt I had the top notch checkup and I thought that it would be enough to put all this craziness to rest. Still the physical symptoms persist and they are quite honestly, frightening.
Avatar n tn I have had 3 cardios and most recently spent a good deal of time at the Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville. I saw an internal med doc, cardio, endocrinolgist, gastro and ENT doc. My workup seems to be clear. The problem is that I am having a left sided chest weirdness that often goes to a spot on my back. It is only left sided and when it happens it brings a sense of panic with it. I would be lying if I said I wasn't feeling anxiety at this point.
464551 tn?1207633959 After reading your post, I read the Mayo Clinic article on PTSD and it sounded like me exactly. I got mad at my husband because where he comes from they don't understand psychological problems (most people in his country are just happy overall) so he kept objecting to me seeing a psychiatrist. His main concern was that they were going to try to push drugs on me, but I told him I didn't want any meds, just therapy. So I'm going to do the brave thing and find a psych to see.
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 The only thing the gasterologists could come up with was to diagnose me with IBS - trash can diagnosis and anxiety and all wanted to give me a low dose antidepressant but in reality no one knew what was wrong with me and seriously thought about going to the Mayo Clinic in Florida. I told them to go take a hike as that was given to my brother and he is no longer with us anymore.
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 doctor in NYC and having intensive scans and blood work done nothing was found other then Tachycardia, Anxiety , Depression and Hypotension. I even went to the MAYO clinic for a week. I started swimming which got me out of bed. Once my doctors and family heard it was basically just depression they pretty much turned on me as if I had nothing wrong. I have improved a lot, but one thing that has not gone away is this out of body feeling.
Avatar f tn If you can, get yourself to the best medical institutions that exist, such as Johns Hopkins or the Mayo Clinic, where docs will work in teams and look at everything. 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.
Avatar n tn It is a breathing related disorder that co-exisits with anxiety and panic disorder and causes many of the "neurological like" tingling, panic, and dizzy sensations. 3 books I recommend are: 1) It's Not All in Your Head : How Worrying about Your Health Could Be Making You Sick--and What You Can Do about It. by Gordon J. G. Asmundson 2) Self-Help for Hyperventilation Syndrome: Recognizing and Correcting Your Breathing-Pattern Disorder.
Avatar n tn Irritated/anger could be a sign of depression or anxiety. Honestly, you sound a lot like I was for several years before I got anxiety disorder. I'd isolate myself for long periods and get angry about the littlest things. Boy, I'd get in some foul moods. I've always had some friends and acquaintances that I couldn't tolerate at times. To some point I think it's just human nature to get in bad moods, but if it happens a lot you may need to do something about it.
Avatar n tn I would look into a major center like Cleveland Clinic or Mayo Clinic if you can. They know what they are doing and it's your health. If anyone knows anything about the effect of aldosterone on a fetus please let me know. I am too young to not have kids and not ready to go through this dangerous surgery. Currently my symptoms are controlled on an aldosterone receptor blocker. I have also seen a homeopath and naturopath who have made great suggestions.
