Avatar f tn I have been told I have general anxiety disorder for over 10 years and really have not done much. When I exercise alot I feel better so I assume that helps.

1936640 tn?1323576210 These all ways you have come up with to relieve your anxiety/stress. My sister twirls the pillowcase hem constantly when one is near. It is done absentmindedly as well. The picking I think indicates a higher stress level for you. Since you sound as if you have never been to talk to anyone about these behaviors, it may now be the time since skin picking can have devastating consequences to a person's self esteem since it causes scars.
Avatar f tn No history of the disorder in my family. I have had, however, major clinical depression and generalized anxiety disorder in the past. Does anyone know the answer?
Avatar f tn d like to narrow things down for my doctor to explore. She usually attribute my complaints to my anxiety disorder and depression, but I know there is more going on than that due to the arthritis and iritis.
Avatar f tn Does anybody know if their anxiety started during menopause and what you did about it?
Avatar f tn Symptoms of the disorder and medications I take are similar for me, as what would also be Menopause symptoms. Maybe this is why I feel like I'm not having Menopausal symptoms. Do, I'm curious of your experience if you are going through Menopause and also have Bi-polar. I would appreciate feedback and hearing others' stories.
443862 tn?1237999439 Hi all, so supposedly I'm in menopause. But because I also have anxiety attacks I never know if the hot flashes and tingling are menopause or anxiety..well, if there is not associated panic with them, then they are menopause. Today I am sweating all day even behind my knees! off and on throughout the day inside in an air conditioned house!
Avatar f tn Here lately I have been having symptoms of early menopause especially intense migraines, extreme night sweats, heavy muscle tention, dizzy spells, dry mouth, different body oder, bloating, weight gain, at times I have trouble breathing, memory lasp at times, nervousness, and anxiety also at times. I was wondering if I could be hitting menopause so young because I started having children at a young age(16yrs.)!
Avatar n tn It's too soon to notice improvement, it might take as long as it took when you first went on it to notice improvement, which might be as long as 4-6 weeks. And it might be that it's pooped out and doesn't work for you anymore. It happens especially when we have been on a drug for a long time, and also when something new happens that is very hard to handle. None of the drugs you take for mental illness cure it, they just tamp down the symptoms.
Avatar f tn Most likely possibility in your case could be a panic or anxiety disorder that you have faced during last event and currently experiencing. Cause of such panic disorder mostly remain unknown but in this disorder you may feel symptoms like shortness of breath, feeling of choking, pain in the chest, nausea, stomach ache, feeling dizzy, tingling or numbness, chills /hot flashes, bounding heartbeat or fast heart rate, sweating, shaking etc. even without any underlying disorder.

Avatar f tn I am 59 years old and was diagnosed with ADD and started taking 10 mg ADDERAL daily 4 years ago though I've had symptoms all my life.

Check at Andrew Johnson's website in Scotland, he has terrific relaxation mp3s if you like. They have been helping me.
Avatar f tn Hi I am 51 and in menopause i felt perfectly normal until about two week ago, I woke up with nausea and stomache ache that would not go away, I thought I had the flu, but no vomiting or anything. Then when night while lying in bed and thinking something must be wrong with me I felt my heart missing a beat a couple of times so I went to emerg thinking I was having a heart attach or something. But ecg and blood work are all normal. But I still get the empty ness feeling in my gut and sadness.
Avatar f tn Anxiety for the heart pulps and dizziness,and maybe pinched nerve for the numbness in the fingers go and get a proper check from your doctor.
Avatar f tn I really doubt it's early menopause. This would be very very young to begin menopause at all, and even then, you would tend to have irregular periods before stopping completely. You'll need to visit a doctor to find out why your period hasn't come. Are there any Planned Parenthoods or free clinics in your area where you can try to seek service?
Avatar f tn I am also suffering from serious heat disorder that starts on my back and goes up and around my head, my heart beats out of my chest. This has been happening for the last month or so. Do you think it could be premature menopause?
Avatar n tn Heart palps and anxiety can all be a part of approaching menopause. I went thru that as well. Now that I am beyond menopause, things are better. It could also be caused by a thyroid disorder or a combination of the two. Just keep following up with your doctor. I can remember reading something about a new treatment for large fibroids. I didn't pay too much attention to it but will try to find it. Birth control pills make me nervous but shouldn't they lessen your menopause symptoms.
667937 tn?1227758698 I am a 35 year old woman. I have had a fever now for over 3 weeks. It never gets over 100.4 and sometimes just goes away. Then it comes back and when it gets over 99.3 is when i feel very ill, tired and just feel like crud. I don't know if maybe i could be going through menopause? Does the body temperature actually go up to give you a temperature? I also have little red bumps on my body but have had those for like 2 1/2 months now i have assumed i am allergic to something here.
94902 tn?1330479667 Well I went off of Zoloft while I was pregnant but had to go right back on it after I had the baby bc of Post Pardum Depression and Post Partum Anxiety. I have had an anxiety disorder since I was very young (27 now). Before I was on 50mg but now I am on 100mg bc the 50 wasn't cutting it with the PPD. I have only had anxiety in the past, so this was my first run in with depression.
