Avatar f tn Here is the latest scoop: Went to shrink appointment yesterday. First...he reamed me out for discussing how long the wait time is in his office. My appt. was for 11:45...the gentlemen next to me was scheduled for the same time (WTH). The waiting room was filled and everyone was talking about how long the wait time is/was for them. Jeepers Cats....we we not talking very loud about the issue....don't know how he new about the waiting room conversations. Second...
Avatar f tn I am dissapointed that once you have a label of anxiety in your medical record, then everything is a symptom of anxiety. If anxiety was the culprit, then pills and CBT, their breathing techniques and progressive muscle relaxation etc would have helped and it didn't. Physiotheraphy and postural correction has helped me tremondously, which to me indicates, it is not anxiety. I have a consultation with a specialist from the sleep apnea team this week.
1244499 tn?1397549123 I guess I'll start by listing my mental health problems. I have "major depressive disorder", social anxiety, GAD, and panic disorder, but that can't possibly be all. No.... I have been deemed treatment resistant. I have taken.... well, let me put it this way: my psychiatrist recommended electroshock therapy. SSRI's don't work. SNRI's don't work. I don't know what Wellbutrin is, but that's not working with Lexapro, which is the combo I'm currently on.

1487801 tn?1288632834 So many ailments can present with symptoms that are the same as anxiety disorder. When you see the ENT be frank and simply explain all the symptoms you are having and have been troubled by. Explain the treatment you have already had and what the findings were. Let the ENT explore the things he specializes in and hope he tells you that he can't find anything. Remember you can have symptoms that can be caused by a number of things.
Avatar m tn Do i have anxiety disorder? For about one month now I have been feeling tired and like i am drunk all the time. It all started a day after a big night of drinking. Now the feeling went away for about a day but then immediately returned and has not gone away since. Now I have noticed my tonsils are huge and even when I get a good night sleep I feel unrefreshed. I feel dizzy when I sit up after lying or sitting down for awhile and I have not been myself what so ever.
Avatar m tn primarily used for short-term anxiety treatment. Not very sedating and not addictive at all. 3. A benzodiazepine (xanax, valium, librium; psychoactive anti-anxiety drug): primarily for short-term anxiety relief. Benzodiazepines are very fast-acting, but can be highly addictive. I would not even recommend benzodiazepines except that you intend to use medication for short-term relief. They can be very addictive. Of these, I would try either xanax or librium.
589870 tn?1222666787 Side Effects of Panic Disorder Without treatment, panic disorder can have very serious consequences. The immediate danger with panic disorder is that it can often lead to a phobia. That's because once you've suffered a panic attack, you may start to avoid situations like the one you were in when the attack occurred. Many people with panic disorder show 'situational avoidance' associated with their panic attacks.
Avatar f tn Having a conversation with your doctor is the best way to discuss treatment options and rule out other conditions. The Anxiety and Depression Association of America, NAMI, or Mental Health America all have lots of information and resources on anxiety.

Avatar n tn There is an excellent quiz that rates your potential for stress-related illnesses (used a lot with depression/anxiety disorder evals) that is great to take. Just by lookling at the list, it's easy to see how we can become so easily stressed...a lot of things (changes) we would consider insignificant adds to our stress levels. I encourage anyone to take it...it was developed by professionals and is still widely used by doctors/therapists. Here's a link to the quiz: http://www.stresstips.
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 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 I am a 22 yr old student, and I sought blood tests recently for worsening fatigue not alleviated by rest. My bloodwork showed TSH levels less than 0.01 and elevated T3. (T4 was in the normal range). However, I felt that my symptoms were more like hypothyroidism. In addition to the fatigue, I have dry skin, especially on my scalp- to the point where it if forming sores from simple abrasion. I have experienced an increased appetite, but no significant weight change.
Avatar m tn If severe and it requires treatment, there are a few medication options though this condition is not very common, and the research that has been done on its treatment is limited. Minimizing caffeine and stress, and treating anxiety if it is present, will improve your symptoms. I recommend continued follow-up with your neurologist. Thank you for this opportunity to answer your questions, I hope you find the information I have provided useful, good luck.
Avatar n tn i may share some of the symptoms, but im not sure if they are all the way severe enough to be the disorder. Maybe i just have really bad anxiety? and another thing im 21, i used to get in a lot of trouble throughout highschool with alcohol and stuff. my father died when i was 12, so maybe im just trying to find myself since i didnt really have a role model? or are these symptoms severe enough to be a disorder? i still feel like im leaving stuff out... anyways.. any advice would be great.
Avatar f tn Hopefully hormone issues get resolved, my weight gets back in order (I'm 70 lbs over after previously never being overweight in my life) and body feels better. There are a lot more options for dealing with anxiety without pain. I just think it's strange that my doc is willing to prescribe me drug after drug to treat pain - including NSAIDs so strong I ended up in the ER with an ulcer! - rather than carefully monitoring me on a narcotic medication.
Avatar n tn MPLS, I believe that avoidant personality disorder is actually part of the continuim of Social anxiety disorder. It is characterized by anxiety induced by various social interactions that ultimately lead to avoidance as a way of ineffectively coping. Treatment of choice is CBT (cognitive behavioral therapy) in addition to anxiolytic agents such as the SSRI's, Buspar, and the benzodiazepines.
Avatar f tn Once you're seen by a psychiatrist, he/she can start discussing treatment options with you which would likely include medications and therapy. When BOTH treatment modalities are used together, success rates significantly improve. Just hang in there..it will happen, it may just take some time. Very best of luck to you...please update us about your situation. We really do care. You're among people who understand and live with depression and anxiety every day.
Avatar n tn If she as real bipolar, I know of no natural treatment for it that is proven to work, or that has worked historically. If it's a new-fangled bipolar diagnosis such as bipolar 2, then of course those drugs won't work because she isn't actually bipolar, they're just selling her pharmaceuticals for a non-condition. So the first thing to determine is whether she's in fact bipolar, or just diagnosed as such -- this is a much abused diagnosis.
Avatar n tn This has led me to the point where i am now...an undergrad senior doing my thesis on the treatment methods of panic disorder/anxiety. I understand what it is like to experience panic symptoms and all the difficulties that come along with it and I am hoping that you will help me. My question is for all panic/anxiety sufferers who may read this... What methods were offered to you as treatment? Medication? Cognitive therapy? What did you try? Which were more helpful?
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm in treatment for anorexia and trying Seroquel XR 50mg to help with mood and anxiety. Really scared of the weight gain I've researched associated with it and have a strong history of hypothyroidism and diabetes in the family. Can anyone help?
Avatar m tn For the past several years, and up until about 6 months ago I suffered from Generalised Anxiety Disorder, a condition which dramatically lowered my quality of life. To all intents and purposes, I am now cured of my anxiety condition. I can say this because I no longer have panic / anxiety attacks and it does not control my lifestyle in the way that it used to.
Avatar f tn I've had an eating disorder for about 5 years. Almost 3 years ago I went inpatient for help. Now I'm within 2 lbs of when I was admitted the first time and I don't know how to ask for help or if I even should ask for help. Asking for help would mean I would have to skip this semester of college and I really don't wanna do that. But if I don't ask for help I'm not sure I'd stay medically stable through May and then I might have to medically withdraw due to Anorexia. I'm so torn through all this.
955560 tn?1250198145 If they persist, or you start to constant worry about them, you might have an anxiety disorder. Your doctor will be able to properly diagnose and treat you. He/she might first want to rule out physiological causes of the anxiety / panic (like a thyroid issue or vitamin / mineral deficiency). You can then discuss what treatment options would be best for you. These might include exercise, talk therapy, relaxation techniques, medication or a combination of these. All the best..
Avatar n tn After reviewing this wonderful website I do have concerns that he does have some type of anxiety disorder. As a child I grinded my teeth together until I was in High school and now I pick at the skin on my fingers and my son does this as well. when he was younger you could call his name and he seemed to be ignoring you. He did not start daycare until he was 1 1/2 and he has had seperation anxiety since the beginning. He is very connected to certain toys.
