Avatar m tn I got Vitiligo on my back and side 2 years ago. The question here is would Anxiety have anything to do with the gene or problems I have? I have to be on Zanax (small amounts) and Lexapro to keep my panic attacks from happening. Not a lot of stress in my life? My belirubin cound came back a little high and the doctor says I have gilberts disease. Whats next? Does anyone have simular problems and does it all have to do with the gene?
Avatar f tn Hello tasha24809, my name is Noelle. I am 14 years old and I to struggle with severe anxiety problems. I am so sorry about your baby, both my brother and mother have also gone to be with the Lord. I know that lossing someone close to you can hurt physically. Try to focus on things you enjoy that you are going to do later. If you are hit with any of these symptoms think about a place that at least feels safe- just focus on making it to that place.
605458 tn?1539232408 Mowing the lawn, riding mower, just ... died. This has affected my anxiety in that it doesn't help the fear I have of suddenly dying from my heart stopping or going into an arrhythmia due to my medication. Usually I fear this will happen while I sleep, sometimes while awake, after I take my meds because one makes my BP drop a bit and in turn my heart beats hard and fast. I am terrified of falling asleep sometimes.
Avatar m tn Yes, it should go away and regrow after you start your anti anxiety med. 17 sounds way to young to go bald. Haha no worries kid...again just anxiety and it will grow back after the pills chill you out. What kind of pills did you get? I need some anti anxiety pills too. Please tell me how they make you feel or if you do any better on them because I may ask my Dr. about them.
Avatar m tn I just got my mammogram result today and too bad I was not able to let my attending doctor read my result because he was already out when the result came in...To ease my anxiety..I would just like to know does it mean in the findings that it is Dense Breast with vague nodularities? What does it mean..I am hi risk of breast cancer because my mom has a stage 1 Breast CA...she's in her 4th year now of cancer survival. Pls.
Avatar m tn I know, when you feel the anxiety, it leads to more anxiety because you are anxious they will notice your anxiety... Higher heart rate, blood pressure, chest pains, wish to immediately leave the place... And to me, it seems better to leave home at night or when it is colder or rainy, because there are less people out there, on the street... You are not alone!
781077 tn?1236120299 So I am starting to comtemplate if i am suffereing from social anxiety or something near that.. I went on a trip with a friend I was dating for about a week and barely talked. But I never talk around people unless I get to know them. I just say I'm shy. So she got mad because I wasnt talking and it made me mad just like it always does when people say that bc it seems like I talk alot but i guess not. So I told her I didn't feel comfortable and I just couldnt be myself with her.
Avatar m tn My mother passed away at 49 and grandfather around the same age. I've been a hypochondriac my whole life, dealing with heath anxiety issues. Visiting the various doctor over 30 times in 4 years. I thought I had brain/neck/lung/testicular/liver/oral/skin cancer. All came back negative. Now the new findings literally left me on the floor crying for hours. I am only 30 years old with a 4 month old boy who I adore.
Avatar f tn We all get the crazy hormonal gene I stay in the room with my dead daughter and I pray and talk to her that's how I get through everything prayer is the key
1679320 tn?1306386514 Both types of anxiety will activate the JNK gene. 1. Meds for anxiety and other conditions are JNK gene activators. 2. Anxiety by itself is a JNK activator. (there are many other activators) Prolonged JNK gene activation WILL (it is definite) cause serious chronic disease (Alzheimer's, Anxiety, BiPolar, Cancer, Diabetes, Parkinson's etc) Please look into it. There are 14000 studies on the JNK gene and yet most Doctors are not up with this research! Hmm, I wonder why not?
Avatar f tn I tell myself that it's always been negative in the past, and it will be again, after all my BRCA gene test was not positive. Still having flashes of panic / anxiety when I think about or talk about the pending MRI or past mammo.
Avatar n tn Anxiety is an inherited trait and I suspect your son has inherited this gene. It was there at birth so the divorce, although this could exacerbate the issue, did not cause it. Whether your son suffers from separation or panic or social or some other form of anxieity is irrelevant (although I suspect it is social anxiety). Since your son is unble to function in certain social situaitons, it might be wise to educate yourself on this disorder.
Avatar n tn Therefore, omething other than HIV is causing yoru symptoms. Stress/anxiety seems the best bet. I don't give relationship counseling, but I strongly suggest you not discuss this with your wife until you a) have the 3 month HIV test result; and b) if still uncertain or can't shake your fears, until you have been evaluated with a counselor or other mental health professional.
268698 tn?1222557484 My mom, sister and 2 brothers have anxiety along with me. I believe that it is hereditary, but I also no people who have anxiety and nobody else in the family has it. It's really hard to say.
Avatar m tn It happened to be so bad that I had to end up going to the emergency room because I couldn't control my anxiety. However prior to Friday I was falling asleep fine without any chemical assistance. It was a sudden onset. This has been going on for 7 days now where the only way I can sleep is during the day because my body is exhausted, The amount of sleep I have been getting is typically during the day.
Avatar n tn I had been told previous to all this that i had panic attacks-so i exercise and lift weights to control them. With the stress and anxiety i was conviced i had the same symptoms as my father. Left Arm: weak,twitching,burning,cramping,numbness,-Left Leg: weak, twitching in calf,numbness in foot and shin area, Upper body: burning sensations throughout back and chest,numbness, the more i thought about it the worse it got. I went to the same nerouligist my father went to he did the needle emg on me.
Avatar m tn I have been suffering with anxiety for 29 yrs. now. I have seen doctors, tried bio-feedback and antidepressants. My biggest problem is that I am allergic to anti-depressants. I have tried every anti-depressant under the sun and have had terrible side effects. My tongue swells up, my throat closes up, my eyes feel like they are going to explode and every muscle in my body aches. Not to mention my blood pressure drops. Every doctor I have seen has told me you can't take anti-depressants ! DA !
Avatar n tn I am suffering from true health anxiety and I am hoping that some of you may have been in my shoes and can help. My fears all stem from perceived heart disease risk. I am a 38 year old female, 2 small kids. For years I have had high chol and bp issues (now on meds), but I have always been upset about this b/c I knew of no one else my age who had these problems in their 20s or 30s. I fear that because these things appeared at a young age, that I will die at a young age.
Avatar m tn I’ve seen my doctor 3 times in the past week and he’s checked to see if i have a swollen optic nerve but doesn't see one (big indication of a tumor). He keeps telling me that its anxiety and prescribes me some antidepressants. To me, this is a cop-out thing to do. I asked my doctor to refer me to a neurologist but he can’t get me in until two months away. The reason for this is probably due to the fact that I'm on Medicaid.
774736 tn?1311334985 I have been posting a lot lately but I am confused on whether or not my anxiety is causing my depression or the other way around...Ive been suffering from derealization and health anxiety for about 2 weeks now as well as severe depression...Ive lost interest in just about everything and am trying to figure out what is making me so miserable the depression, anxiety or both?...
Avatar n tn 11 years ago I was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder,after fainting with seizure activity and then for an entire year I had anxiety out the yang. Anyway,it comes and goes.Well I thought maybe the fainting was a one time thing.I was checked by doctors a neurologist and had a MRI,EEG,BLOOD TESTS,CAT SCAN.I was fine for about 5 to 6 years not much anxiety and no fainting.Then it hit me hard I fainted 4 times in a year and a halfs time.
Avatar n tn Earlier I posted, may be, on the wrong forum -so i would post again. Sorry for duplication. About couple of years ago, some researchers had found what was termed "fear gene" -namely GRH and Stathmin which were related to innate and learned fears. Does anyone know what is the status of their studies, meaning -how does all these gene finding help a lay-person who is "exessively" fearful/panicky/phobic?
Avatar m tn Hello - I heard that many people carry many diseases or cancers in their bodies and it just takes a "trigger" to make them active - because everyone is different it's hard to pinpoint what triggers each person. For our daughter I think it was stress & anxiety that triggered crohn's. She still hasn't found the drug that works - a year later.....we're still trying and hoping but she's at the point of feeling disillusioned with doctors and the overall medical community....
Avatar f tn This protein is encoded by the ABCB1 gene, non-responders often have a genetic mutation in this gene which can greatly modulate the concentration of several antidepressant that are substrate of Pgp. This genetic mutation is often responsible of the non-responding effect of several antidepressants. Unfortunately not a lot of doctor are aware of this and they goes trials and errors before trying Prozac which is, like I said, not a substrate of Pgp.
Avatar n tn My main symptoms were pains in the stomach, constant heartburn, loss of appetite,very loose stool, gases, weight loss, weak muscles, fatigue and exhaustion, but the worse was constant anxiety and depressive moods. The docs said I just have a irritable colon and stomach, probably because of the beginning of a burn out and depression.
Avatar f tn I have suffered from depression, anxiety, and sleep disorders my entire life. I have taken antidepressants for almost 20 years. I recently found out I am missing an allele on C677T and A1298C in the MTHFR gene. I am thankful for an answer, and hoping that I can find a successful treatment and see an improvement in my quality of life. I just started taking metanx. I am seeking success stories! I can only handle hearing positive stories right now.
Avatar n tn I am not suffering from anxiety. I am writing on behalf of a loved-one (though unbeknownst to her). I am also not 100% familiar with her condition. We have talked about it quite a bit and I have helped her through some bad episodes, but there are some things she isnt comfortable talking about. Heres what I know: She is afraid of vomiting (emetiphobia?). I have gathered that this is related to a traumatic childhood experience, though she has never actually told me what the experience was.
Avatar n tn My daughter also has many friends, but refuses to attend birthday parties and playdates. I, too have anxiety and unfortunately my daughter has inherited this gene from me. My husband (anxiety free) has a much more calm and positive approach to her anxiety. My husband feels as if she will grow out of it in time and that my obsession with making her better is only making things worse. I think we try so hard beacause we don't want our kids to go through the same things we've been through.
