Avatar f tn It is called derealization/depersonalization and is an anxiety symptom. It can go hand-in-hand with the other anxiety symptoms. I think you need to contact NHS Time to Talk again and see if you can go back and continue with the therapy. You didn't mention if you had stopped it or not but I'm assuming you have. Did they teach you cognitive behavioral therapy strategies? Did they discuss medication with you as an option provided you are open to that?
Avatar m tn Long term H.I.V Anxiety sufferer. Seeking help in the U.K for possible phsychological issues including Depression/Anxiety. Accepting this is probably my issue, but cannot at the moment control the worries. I wanted to know if anyone knows if the 'STANDARD H.I.V ANTIBODY' tests used in the U.K by the NHS would be the same as the ones generally used in the U.S?? If I need to test to relieve anxiety, like anyone I want a 'SIGNIFICANT' level of reassurance A.S.A.P.
Avatar n tn I have been going crazy for the last 13 weeks and when I heard this it has made my anxiety alot worse, I was always under the impression that the NHS guidlines say 12 weeks is 100% conclusive. Your advice would be greatly received. Many Thanks A very worried person!!!
Avatar n tn Hi I am from the UK but currently live in the US so know how both systems work. I would recommend seeing the specialist privately in the UK. It's usually not too expensive and you can be seen within days. For something like your eyes, this is a good investment believe me. In the US, you can see whoever you want......but believe me also when I tell you the bills are scary. Even with insurance! Don't hate on the NHS just yet.
Avatar n tn I am an engineer and in my line of duty I have to provide explanations of problems that occured and the solutions that were implemented. This can be in a management meeting or to a team of employees both junior and senior. I will be having all the facts with me but when I speak after the first sentence I start to fail to confidently express my self. My heart starts to beat faster and faster, my voice squeaks and I run short of breath.
Avatar m tn I had a urine test for both chlam and gonn at the local NHS GUM clinic at approx 11/11.5 days after the encounter which came back negative for peace of mind. I'd had no symptoms whatsoever i.e. discharge or penile sores etc. I went back this week (Wednesday) to the NHS GUM clinc for peace of mind (tests taken were chlam, gonn, syphillis and HIV).
Avatar f tn ve been on a waiting list for counselling for some months and hopefully will get help soon with my anxiety. I had been tested for HIV as part of a STD check in 2011. Results were negative. I worried though when I came across a post on the freedomhealth website, where someone else from UK asked if the test covered all strains of HIV, the Doctor replied the test from the GUM clinic on NHS would cover HIV 1 and 2 and most subtypes. I assumed any subtypes missing would be globally very rare?
Avatar m tn I am not even sure if it was an exposure for hiv or not, but because of my guilt and anxiety I started considering it as an exposure and started worrying. I approached him from behind to penetrate him anally but the place was really dark, my penis wasn't fully erect, I didn't try pushing or shoving it as it was my first time trying a sexual experience. Due to my anxiety I stopped it after 2-3 seconds, but wasn't sure whether I penetrated him or not.
1651508 tn?1322141280 I get a very similar feeling in my neck at times, which has been diagnosed as severe tension because I apparently "carry" most of my stress in the neck and shoulder area. My arthritis also plays a part in the stiffness, as it causes inflamation which can result in the swelling of tendons, muscles and ligaments and these can produce a sort of clicking or snapping sound when rotating your neck. (Hurts like hell, doesn't it?
1348086 tn?1370783185 It's hard to tell whether it's the med, the anxiety, or maybe even some depression causing your anger issues. When I'm feeling depressed (more than anxious), I'm also very short-tempered, impatient, moody, etc. Depression commonly accompanies anxiety as well. That may be something to look into. Do you have a lack of motivation? Do you not get much enjoyment out of things that would typically make you happy? Sleep disturbances (too much, not enough?
Avatar f tn Hi Cannybrit, Welcome to the Pain Management Forum. I am glad that you found us but sorry to hear about your neck pain. JHuxlet is correct. Some ppl find that acupuncture eases their pain. I also tried acupuncture. I found it extremely relaxing. I'm not sure it was effective for my pain but it was calming and it didn't hurt. In my opinion it is worth a try. Please let us know what you decide and if it works for you. I'll look forward to your updates.
Avatar f tn and he said that it is most likely due to anxiety. That while I might not feel anxious, there could still be anxiety manifesting itself in other ways physically...anxiety being one of them.
Avatar m tn Benzodiazepines have robust efficacy in the short-term management of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), but were not shown to be effective in producing long-term improvement overall. Although benzodiazepines are much safer in overdose than their predecessors, the barbiturates, they can still cause problems in overdose.
Avatar m tn Have you tried gabapentin for your epilepsy it's also works for anxiety. I currently take it for my anxiety and it works very well I take 300mgs 3-times a day. Maybe that will help. Good luck!!
370181 tn?1595629445 I am a 61 y/o woman diagnosed with psoratric arthritis when I was 18. Back then it was just in my knees, but now the only joints that are not affected are my elbows. (YIPEE. huh?) LOL About 10 years ago when the pain become quite bad and chronic, I managed with just mega doses of aspirin and the odd script from the doc for a mild pain med. I have now been through prednisone, methotrexate, Enbrel, Humara(Humira? sp) then back to Enbrel.......then nothing.
Avatar f tn That's a tough question to answer. I would say that the dentist should have quite a few techniques and different types of anesthetics that they could attempt to use to "numb" the area. But I can't specifically say what he/she has since I'm not there to observe. That's unfortunate you're not able to switch dentists. There's no process to find another dentist at all within the NHS system? I'm assuming the NHS system is based in Great Britain?
