Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety disorder self test


3060903 tn?1398568723 WHEN TO GET HELP FOR GENERALIZED ANXIETY DISORDER??? Self-help strategies are enough for many people with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). Others need additional therapy and support to get anxiety under control. If you can’t seem to shake your worries and fears, despite trying the self-help treatment tips, it may be time to seek professional help.

Avatar f tn Hi, I have been diagnosed with Anxiety Disorder in 2006. Back then, I was in a very stressful sales role and managing a really bad relationship where a third party was involved. I thought I was able to manage it very well by ending the relationship then. One night, I was trying to relax and had a mask on my face. I fell asleep but suddenly woke up feeling extremely breathless and I thought I was going to due from a heart attack!

Avatar m tn Have you been assessed by a mental health professional? If not, you need to. You exhibit all the classic signs of an anxiety disorder (like OCD). As I'm sure you've noticed, our HIV forum (and those on other sites) are just littered with posts from worried wells like yourself. I'd say that the actual percentage of people asking realistic, sincere assessment questions is VERY low, probably 10% or less.
Avatar m tn definitely sounds like panic disorder to me...youre too young for heart problems. i am 27 and am going through the exact same things you are....cept my face and left arm go numb. i hope one day it will go away....keep on exercising and drink plenty of seems to help me quite a bit. also this works for me too....inside your head...
Avatar m tn something definately triggers the extreme anxiety that causes us to develop an anxiety disorder. for me it was my family moving 4 states away! that was 5 years ago. my current state is so bad that i have the depersonalization, nothing seems real, constant pressure in my head, dizzy all the time, constant feelings of passing out. this is very overwhelming and at times there seems as there is no hope.
Avatar n tn I've been DX'd with panic disorder and general anxiety disorder, with a chronic fear of cardic disease, making me cardio-phobic. With therapy and Klonopin, my panic attacks are under control, however, my chronc anxiety and hypervigilince of heart diesease remains, even though my cardiologist says my heart is fine. I'm also on Toprol and a diuretic for mild HBP, again, caused by my anxious state.
Avatar m tn After reading into it a little bit, I've thought it might be anxiety related. I posted this question in the allergy section as well, but the more I think about it, the more anxiety related I think the reaction is. I'm almost 16 now, and my throat closing has been a constant worry of mine for a while now. I went through a phase when I was young, maybe 10 or so, where I thought every food I ate would end up getting stuck in my throat.
Avatar n tn If you're not going to believe your doctor, why go? So, he has given you "every" test, but what is he DOING for your anxiety? Are you on any meds? Are you in therapy? Does he just simply tell you that you have anxiety and then walk out the door? That is VERY poor medicine. I personally would look for a different doctor. Your's sounds like a moron. The floor moving is a very common side effect of anxiety.
Avatar f tn I posted a web address before if you look above this posts and if you would read that book “it’s free” it’s not a book I wrote or any crap like that, you can just copy and paste the address and it will come up as a PDF so you don’t even have to go out to get it, it just explains what the hell is going on with you if what you have is anxiety, I almost drove myself crazy running from doctor to doctor, test after test and nothing, if you are having anxiety attacks then you should really read this
Avatar n tn Two pieces of medical history before my question. I have anxiety/panic disorder(3yrs) and sinus bradycardia. From time to time I feel fluttering sensations in my chest and pauses where it seems like my heart stops and the recharges it self, all lasting half a second to 3 or 4 seconds. Anyways I recently have had a set back and had an intense panic attack. Since then I have been in a world of anxiety. I'm a runner, but during times of anxiety it is tough for me to run.
Avatar n tn Hello everyone, I`m 26, dignosed with anxiety disorder, which is getting really bad at times - heart paltpitations,chest pain, breathing problems, twitching musles, nausea, headaches, chronic fatigue, nonstop frequent infections - sinus, UTI, kindey ect. Till a certain moment I`ve managed to keep the things under control, but now it`s becomeing more and more difficult every single day.
Avatar n tn By the end of the day , you should have gleened enough information from all of these great folks to start formulating a plan to deal with you anxiety. Here is my two cents... I have suffered from Generalized Anxiety Disorder since 1990 and have been gone through varoius medications and consuling trying to deal with it.
2111850 tn?1334369185 Some other predisposing factors to panic attacks and an anxiety disorder would be familial history (someone in your family with anxiety issues) and MVP (mitral valve prolapse, or a heart murmur). The good news is, there is help out there, and there are millions of people with anxiety disorders, so it is very common, you are not alone. Also, you have reached out early on, that will help you immensely.

Avatar m tn I received my first diagnosis back in 2007 of social anxiety disorder and was later diagnosed with generalized and OCD obsessional type. Throughout this time I also received the diagnosis of major depressive disorder. The most distressing of these, however, were the anxiety disorders. My anxiety used to manifest itself primarily as bodily symptoms - constant heart palpitations, feelings of impending doom. I would experience these things from the minute I woke up til I went to sleep.
Avatar m tn Hi there, last friday I was diagnosed with "somatization disorder" after an extensive evaluation at a local psychosomatic clinic. my backround is the following: I´m struggling with a lot of debilitating symptoms since April this year. It started with fatigue,exhaustion and heart problems in May and then developed into symptoms of weakness and muscle weakness along with balance and coordination issues since June.Since that it got worse on a constant basis.

220917 tn?1309788081 What I meant when I said that I was thinking about Millerman and others is that some of these wacky doctors misunderstand anxiety problems and conversion disorder. If we were suffering from it, we wouldn't BE ANXIOUS! At least that's what I got from the article... Please read it for yourselves and correct me where I'm wrong or join in a lively discussion!
Avatar m tn As of today, I still have stroke like symptoms, left leg drags, speach is still messed up, I have little to no strength in my left arm, the newest thing is I am having uncontrolable muscle spasms on my right side, OH yeah I don't sleep more than 2 hours a night. I have been dignosed with Conversion Disorder, Post Tramatic Stress Disorder and Acute Anxiety Disorder. I am not allowed to work, drive....daily activities are becoming more and more difficult. Before March 4th I was a normal 33yr.
Avatar m tn just remember you was once normal you can be again , yes you will have anxiety from time to time but you can get back to self take the meds and try and relax
Avatar f tn I read about Borderline Personality disorder and Narcissitic personality disorder only recently, and felt so many things reflected her behaviour. By then we had enabled and reinforced many of her negative behaviour. She now says we are the ones with a problem and will never accept an evaluation by a psychiatrist. And because of her ego and pride, she will never heal. She says her life is empty as she has no frieds or kids or family.
1263071 tn?1270297845 My MRI is clean and I keep hearing you might want ot consider conversion disorder over and over again. I am discouraged though because I have been to a psychiatrist that ruled that out. So I have half drs saying MS and half saying conversion disorder. Has anyone every experienced this and do you ever feel like you leave your dr office like you have just had the wind out of you? How long have some of you had to wait for your diagnosis? Did people say you were nuts?
696755 tn?1236019912 You can't understand everything with Conversion Disorder, but through therapy and self reflection eventually you can see what the problem is. This probably sounds confusing and all. I was sure I didn't have Conversion Disorder because dang it I was happy. I was happy with my marriage and with my job and then everything started going bad once I got hit in the head. It wasn't until I decided to come out to Cleveland that I was really able to focus on what was bothering me.
Avatar n tn I think all of your symptoms are due to anxiety. Get the test already. There is nothing worse than living in fear. Your waisting your life away. I can't wait til you post your negative test. You will see things in a whole new light.
