671132 tn?1335247006 ve been using CBT for my anxiety issues for a year now, and it absolutely has worked for me! One of the advantages of CBT is that there are a lot of techniques and methodologies to work with, but the downside is that you have to discover what works and what doesn't.

Avatar m tn Symptoms of anxiety and panicky feelings are very disturbing, and unfortunately anxiety is prone to worsen/become more ingrained with time if not treated/sorted out. Hypno Therapy can be helpful to some people, as well as NLP(Neuro Linguistic Programming),but not to all. CBT(Cognitive Behavioural Therapy) can be very effective, and there are therapists(psychologists or psychiatrists) whom are trained in this particular method/branch of psychological approaches.
Avatar m tn i have been put on seroquel for long term management of terrible anxiety, it works very well for me and doesnt have the tolerance and withdrawal issues of benzos. having said that what works for one person may not work for the next. also do you have acsess to anyone that can teach you CBT, its a really helpful non drug tool.
Avatar n tn I think what needhelp4me434 meant was that there is an underlying issue as to why you are having these anxiety attacks that need to be addressed, and that the medication you are on only helps take away the symptoms, and that you have to play a part in recovering from and eliminating them. This is where things like therapy, CBT, exercise, proper diet and stress management come in...
Avatar f tn It can help, but whether it can help alone really depends on what your social anxiety is like. So, what is it like? It also depends on the CBT that you are learning. My first CBT instructor,who also is a therapist with an MFT credential, really helped me out with her type of CBT, which was very practical and deceivingly more in-depth than her steps suggested.
Avatar m tn I need help, I suffer from anxiety and I take 20mg citalopram. I had a good job my life was ok but now I can't go out I worry about little things like someone is following me, I can't shake anyone's hand or be next to them incase I might catch something, I hear voices in my head to kill myself but I would never do that. I just want to be normal.

Avatar f tn For me, anxiety can have a dramatic effect on ectopic heartbeats. I experience SVT, PVC's, and skipped beats. All get worse when I am anxious. If you think about them all the time, I suggest you immediately have the CBT. It certainly will not hurt but can only help. Of course, I am assuming your ectopic heartbeats are benign. If not, I would get checked out by a cardiologist.
780665 tn?1239026549 Cognitive Behavior Therapy is really effective for a lot of people! Apparently when we are able to change our thinking patterns (through CBT) depression and anxiety symptoms usually lessen, or disappear. Also, in my opinion, it's hard to find good care providers, so my suggestion would be to stick with the CBT therapist if that's working for you. If you ever want to change ~ Always Establish a Connection with a new provider before discontinuing any therapist.
Avatar f tn hi CBT helps a lot with anxiety, it helps you realise that anxiety can actually cause these palpatations etc anxiety is one big circle and CBT helps you break the circle cause once its broken you`ve cracked it, my therapist didn really ask about my past although bits of it did come out, they help you understand more about anxiety.
1669548 tn?1318788734 CBT is a powerful way to address anxiety. CBT skills take practice. Oftentimes, worry and fear start in childhood and adolescence. CBT skills work for young people too, and gives them a way to manage anxiety as they mature.
Avatar f tn What kind of therapy are you doing? Is it CBT? I've never had that kind of therapy myself but I've heard from many people that it really does help.
1455152 tn?1285378726 CBT has been shown to be extremely effective in treating a variety of conditions including drug abuse, phobias and most anxiety disorders. As you alluded to in your post, CBT is a recallibration of sorts. It can teach you how to deal with irrational fears through a variety of methods and not just sitting in a room and talking about it. Medicating anxiety is a symptomatic treatment and does nothing to address the underlying causes.
534800 tn?1217167359 Since 2003 I have been, related to perimenopause and relocating to an urban environment, living and dealing with various stages of insomnia. I have literally tried just about every product on the market, both OTC and prescribed, and they all work at first (a few days) then - nothing.
Avatar n tn Anxiety and depression frequently cause insomnia. All the symptoms you mention are quite common for these disorders and drinking alcohol only makes matters worse. Insomnia was one of the major symptoms of my anxiety and depression. I too would wake up in the middle of the night with panic attacks and life became a living hell. The suggestions given by the earlier posters should be given serious consideration, especially the CBT.
Avatar n tn As far as the thoughts go, they can TOTALLY be a byproduct of anxiety. Some people with anxiety - depending on the type of anxiety - do get intrusive thoughts of that nature (hurting themselves/others) and some of them get intrusive thoughts that are very much "what if something bad happens to me?" I get the second type, the what ifs, but it sounds like you're dealing with both. I'm so sorry! CBT can be really helpful in learning how to cope with these.
1515545 tn?1291395764 CBT goes a long way in helping with anxiety. Most people use both CBT and meds. So if you have not learned CBT, you need to. You need to so something because you cannot sit in your home figuring out ways to not go outside. I hope that you will do a reevaluation as soon as you can.
564491 tn?1320360393 I have sleep apnea, insomnia, Diabetes Type II, hypertension, chronic headaches/migraines, hypothroidism, dysthymia, genralized anxiety disorder, elevated cholesterol (all controlled with medication). I take Rozerem for the insomnia. Works a bit. I use a C-PAP machine for the sleep apnea, but it doesn't seem to help my migraines and chronic headaches as I was hoping it would do. I am at the end of my rope, as it seems nothing and noone can help me.
229538 tn?1300377767 Hey Jimmy...have you ever tried CBT? Since your anxiety seems to be peaked on weekends, I think it might help a good bit. Just a suggestion..
Avatar f tn OCD is one of the anxiety disorders so OCD and anxiety are one and the same. So glad you will soon be starting CBT - it can be a life saver. I wish you the best ....
Avatar m tn Even though I take medication, Wellbutrin, I do still have some panic attacks which I use CBT on...wondering if it is the same as me.
