Anxiety disorder nos criteria

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety disorder nos criteria

anxiety

Avatar f tn Have a look at the DSM IV criteria for PDD NOS and Autism (or autistic spectrum disorder). The criteria says problems with speech and communication (which your son has). Problems with needing a rigid routines or being inflexible (which your son has). The need for things to remain the same usually indicates poor imagination and flexibility of thought. Sensory issues (typical of ASD, but not in the criteria).
799827 tn?1237599735 From your post I presume she has a diagnosis of PDD NOS? What part of the diagnostic criteria for an autistic spectrum disorder did she fail on? I am in the UK, and the definition of 'education' in the UK is not limited to just reading and writing. It includes social interaction and play skills, life skills, emotional regulation and anxiety regulation etc. So, in short, I disagree with the school. Is she in a mainstream school?
Avatar f tn She is PDD-NOS, Sensory Processing Disorder, ASD, Anxiety Disorder, and Mood Disorder. argh! She is now on a low dose of celexa for anxiety and risperdone for anger/aggression. Please, anyone reading this OuDO NOT SEND ANY POSTS ABOUT THE DANGERS OF MEDICATING YOUNGER CHILDREN. The decision is not an easy one and nobody wants to put their kids on meds. The truth is, OT, counseling, play therapy, etc..therapies do not always work or even help much.
Avatar m tn anxiety state or (d) depressive disorder. I know nothing of the mental health of my mother’s parents or grandparents and so am unable to draw on what could be a useful knowledge base to explain the origins of my BPD. 1.3.
Avatar n tn Hello, I wanted to know if anyone might be able to help, I have a 9 year old daughter who shows signs of rigidness, black and white thinking, uncontrolable impulsitivites, hates changes in routines, poor social skills, fixations on details, along with depression, perfectionism,attention problems, and other behaviorla issues as I am sure you can imagine the ones that go with a few of these, she started at age 4 with these, has seen a PSYchatrist, and 2 neuros, I said she had ADD, maybe a PDD, ano
585414 tn?1288944902 These were all before 6 yrs. of age. At 6, she was diagnosed with PDD-NOS. She had most of the criteria for autism but because she had an imaginary friend, MPM, she was not given the autism diagnose. I was ok with the diagnose at that time. I had her re-evaluated at 12 & was told once she was diagnosed with PDD-NOS...always will stick with her. It can be such a maze for anyone, parent or individual.
Avatar f tn Well if your borderline aspergers that must mean that you should be diagnosed with PDD-NOS, as you show all the traits associated with aspergers, but the docs dotn think you quite fit the criteria, PSS-NOS is recognised as being on the autistic spectrum.
Avatar n tn Guanfacine (brand name Tenex) has been used as treatment for hyperactivity, impulsivity, anxiety, irritability, temper tantrums, and tics. It is sometimes used together with a stimulant medication for ADHD. Improvement is not typically seen for 2 weeks following the initiation of the medication and the full effects may not be apparent for two to four months. Daytime sleepiness and fatigue are common side effects, so your describing him as being like a “zombie” is not surprising.
Avatar n tn Hi, sounds a lot like my child who is now 4. when she was 2 she could do 48 piece puzzles and knew the alphabet but could not stand hugs and was sort of lost. she does not really have a speech delay, but a delay in other areas. At 3 she was dx with PDD-NOS "pervasive development disorder, not otherwise specificed" because she did not fit nicely into any category. She did not have above normal/normal language skills which would have given her the asperger's dx i think.
Avatar m tn Just being in the school has opened him up to being more receptive around large groups of people, which prior to that would cause him great anxiety initially. He hasn't been formally diagnosed, in your opinion, what does his behavior indicate?
Avatar m tn I think there is a very real possiblity for aspergers or PDD nos. For PDD nos/aspergers, not every trait related to autism is expressed and there may be crossovers that seem characteristic to other things like ADHD. I'm pretty much all over the spectrum when it comes to varrious things. (at least my grandma believes this) Makes me wonder if I had your psych, if they would rule me out too because of whatever?
Avatar f tn Well, if my daughter does not have PDD-NOS or autism, then she will have ADHD, OCD, social anxiety disorder, sensory integration disorder, and verbal apraxia. Actually the verbal apraxia is a diagnosis in addition to the PDD, but the other things roll into PDD. So a diagnosis of PDD rules out a separate diagnosis of other things that are common with ASD. My mind feels like it's going to blow up sometimes when I think about all those technical categories. Having said all that...
Avatar f tn In my journals I noted some triggers that cause me to outburst. Usually it is out of anxiety. This anxiety doesn't have to be my own either. If people around me are anxious I pick it up. The more anxious they are, the more anxious I get...If they are anxious at me then it gets to be a battle. I respond better to a calm environment with minimal yelling and snapping. The example you showed us, sounds like his roaring is an attempt to communicate.
Avatar n tn And, with the family history, your son may be predisposed to anxiety disorder (social phobia is one type of anxiety disorder), given the hereditary nature of some of these conditions. You should be encouraged by the progress your son has displayed in his communication, social interactions, and frustration tolerance/impulse control at home. The challenge ahead is how to replicate that same progress in his verbal communication and social interactions outside of the home.

Avatar f tn now doing clinical trials, and if it is the same with or without stimulants, he won't take them anymore...also has anxiety disorder, so now my son is comorbid which makes things even worse, however as the doctor outlines her recommendations, my son will now get the right kind of help at school, with computer , one to one learning, no french classes and homework.
Avatar n tn we had everything in common.suddenly, i developed an anxiety disorder of some sort and was imbarrased to let him see me shake . i was so self concience about this and at that time (1988 to 1999) the doctors wasnt explaining to me what a chemical imbalance was. they just kept telling me to see a psychiatrist and that, i thought, ment i was crazy and i thought the doctors were crazy. so for years i thought of nothing but him.
Avatar m tn I have asked about aspergers syndrome and have been told that my daughter does not meet the criteria. It has been suggested that she has autistic disorder but how is this even possible when she is clearly smart? Surly her intelligence warrants an aspergers diagnosis even if she still has difficulties with communication? I have been told that she may never have a job, and will require continuing assistance through out her life. But I believe that there is a lot more out there for my daughter.

Avatar n tn From Educational Psychologists report in 2006 I know that my son is at least of average intelligence although there are learning difficulties which may include Dyslexia and he has a Speech Disorder classed as severe for his understanding of receptive speech, along with sensory processing disorder and auditory processing disorder. So where does he fit in?? Not in an Autism Unit. Not in a school for Learning Disabilities as many of those children have lower than average IQ.
Avatar n tn Our daughter was diagnosed with PDD-NOS, and frankly at this point in time, I don't care about questioning the diagnosis because she's very young to differentiate between various diagnoses and the school system and her IEP is written so it addresses the areas she needs help in, not based on some label, based on her individual needs. At some point when she's a bit older we will go back to a specialist.
Avatar m tn My sister also had delayed speech and motor skills, though her speech was so behind and she had a language processing disorder that she needed to have speech therapy, which was offered through the public school system. She was 3 1/2, going on 4 when she started. My parents thought she was a little behind but didn't realize how far until she was that age.
Avatar f tn Medically, he may be diagnosed ASPERGERS or PDD-NOS (or something else.). But there is NO EDUCATIONAL DEFINITION OF PDD-NOS nor Aspbergers. So the best fit is autism in the IDEA sense of the word. This way he gets special ed servioces. . Unless you see any of the other 12 IDEA categories he fits better go for it. But from what you describe, I think autism (IDEA definoition) looks like the best fit to me.
Avatar n tn He will play with other things some of the time, but he would rather watch movies and play his Leapster and it's when I make him take a break from either of those things then he plays with his puzzles and action figures. So theres Aidan up against the criteria....there are certain criteria he seems to meet, but then other criteria, like difficulty with imaginative play, rubbing or licking things, flapping hands, lack of eye contact, speech developement, and so on....he has no problems with.
Avatar m tn He never shows anxiety when in large crowds or at restaurants. He enjoys watching children. He will smile at them many times, but will not interact with them. He is okay with babies at first, then he acts a little afraid of them. The babies he has been exposed to all have siblings, so they are a little aggressive with him. Sometimes he will grab at them and sometimes not. The only times he is exposed to other kids are at church and out in public. He is my first child.
Avatar m tn severe depression with psychotic features, anxiety disorder, anxiety nos, gad, moderate social phobia, eating disorder nos, ocd, ocpd, bpd, complicated adjustment disorder, severe chronic dysthymia and other miscellaneous stuff like perfectionism, symptoms of binge drinking (if one glass of wine when I feel like **** constitutes binge drinking because I don't otherwise drink) and ptsd, etc, etc. I blame all these on hospitalization. Similar to what you're doing with withdrawal.
Avatar n tn I wish the medical community would look at the common threads here and take this disorder seriously. It seems too simple to just attribute it to anxiety. For myself I've had spells during very relaxing periods of my life and no spells during periods of mild, moderate and extremely high stress and vice versa. Though I can appreciate that anxiety is an easy method to explain this away it simply doesn't ring true for me.
Avatar n tn This will be your best circumstance for the investment. DH and I defined our own criteria in baseline after the docs always said....less than 10 looks good to go and we would get different sizes and not enough mature. So we set the rules after that and it has REALLY paid off. Min 8 antral follicles and all about 5 mm.
