Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety management skills


Avatar n tn Hello, I've been on Wellbutrin XL 300mg (2mos) and prior to that, I was taking wellbutrin sr 100mg 1x/day (1.5 yrs). I take wellbutrin for depression and anxiety which I've suffered with since I was a teen-ager (I'm 33 yrs old) but only started treatment after the birth of my daughter who is now 2 1/2 yrs old. Wellbutrin works well with depression and anxiety but lately I'm very short tempered. I could be feeling great then something slightly annoying happens and I start to boil.

Avatar f tn I started counseling and have been re-learning coping skills, stress management, etc. It helps sometimes but other times my anxiety/emotionality(comes 2nd) is horrific & I cannot get a grip on it-even with some Ativan and all of the coping skills I've learned so far. I also have these horrific chills and trembling inside that I've had for years-I call them cold flashes-they happen any time and have woke me up at night.
2010625 tn?1329375656 But yeah being sick and in pain can also cause anxiety. But also anxiety can cause symptoms. Hopefully youll find out whats wrong soon. Hope you feel better.
3060903 tn?1398568723 By focusing on your fears without trying to avoid or escape them, you will begin to feel more in control and less anxious. Time management and problem-solving skills are also effective behavioral techniques for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). MEDICATION FOR GENERALIZED ANXIETY DISORDER Medication can be effective for generalized anxiety disorder (GAD).
Avatar m tn Well to begin I have my degree in psychology ( I am NOT a doctor) but from what you have explained (the symptoms) sound exactly like anxiety. I also have anxiety but Im on the correct meds now so its controlled. With anxiety you really feel like your dying or something is seriously wrong, but really your mind is telling you this bc of the "fight or flight" reaction in your brain. I also experienced that too.
Avatar m tn Positive Thinking With Cognitive-Behavioral Therapy. Symptom management skills. This therapy teaches you how to reduce stress by controlling your breathing and other physical responses to anxiety. Supportive therapy. This can include: Education about the disorder. Family therapy, to support loved ones affected by your condition. Group therapy or support groups, to seek support from others also diagnosed with the disorder. Here's the meds suggested. But I suggest staying away from benzos.
6539069 tn?1383243807 like I know for some reason that we can control the anxiety by stress management and looking at more nicer things and even we cannot avoid panic attacks cause it may come suddenly, we can still control it by staying calm and focused, deep breathing until it subsides and gone. I guess we need to embrace and accept within ourselves that this is us, and this is a part of us.
Avatar f tn I have really major anxiety problems. Pretty regular panic attacks, irrational fear, OCD-like tendancies. I am scared of medication and I am scared of psychiatrists. How can anxiety be treated? Do you have to see a doctor or are there reliable self treatable methods? I am getting so desperate I don't know what to do anymore.
Avatar n tn I got up and asked someone to take me to the ER. The Dr listened to me and said I am suffering from anxiety and gave me Ativan 1 mg. I took them and they worked but he wanted me to follow up w/ a reg dr. I did and she said the same thing - anxiety. Now, my question is this: I don't feel PANICKED or terrified. I feel weird...dizzy, sweaty, a bit out of control because of the symptoms and what could happen (faint in front of everyone - things like that).
147426 tn?1317269232 This topic of anxiety symptoms versus real ones has come up a couple times recently and I decided to do a blurb on "Somatization" or the appearance of symptoms that represent anxiety or psychiatric difficulty expressed as physical symptoms. For the last week I have been doing reading and I will tell you that I come away both suspicious of the medical profession's take on this topic and confused about what I really know and what I want to believe.
Avatar f tn I've experienced anxiety that would not go away for weeks then I went on an antidepressant and I had to go through startup anxiety. It didn't matter what coping skills I used it continue to stay. I'm now on Effexor I'm not doing well on it and I'm so afraid of the withdrawal anxiety as well as my regular anxiety returning as well as start-up anxiety from the news antidepressant my doctor may put me on.

Avatar n tn You can go to your community mental health agency and get help with anger management, parenting skills, and any other connected issues, like substance use, anxiety or depression.
Avatar n tn The treatment is mainly focuses around management of symptoms by using medications for anxiety, depression, and neurologic symptoms. Levo dopa has been found to be helpful. Please consult an experienced neurologist about it. Take care!
Avatar m tn Hello, Anxiety can cause you to clench your teeth. How often is this occurring ? Have you ever tried and stress management skills. That might help.
Avatar f tn executive skills, language processing skills, emotion regulation skills, cognitive flexibility skills, and social skills. For example, one of the executive skills is separation of affect which means separating emotions form thinking. The goal of intervention would be to teach the child how to think clearly in the midst of frustration. (As opposed to punishing the child for not thinking clearly in the midst of frustration).
Avatar f tn I know I have had a lot of anger issues in the past along with anxiety (actually my anxiety caused anger, but a good bit of mine was caused by other reasons). I don't know your situation and issues and normally I would never suggest seeking a doctor/therapist for medication but maybe it will help you. I would just seek the help of a professionial in your area (therapist or doctor) and get their advice on it. Sometimes a family doctor can point you in the right direction.
Avatar f tn I have a 16 year old daughter who has type 1 Diabetes since the age of 5 and who also suffers from anxiety and depression since the age of 11 she has been getting treatment by seeing therapists and taking anti depressants for the past 4 years from numerous sources available in our home town she has had major problems attending school due to her anxiety its to the point where I can barely keep a job because she wont go to school and they call me everyday because she just will not stay longer than
Avatar f tn Follow up was recommended, but fast forward 4 yrs and I end up seeing a neurologist for vague complaints that can easily be caused by anxiety and depression (which I have). Some examples are fatigue, irritability, and difficulty concentrating and remembering things. Doctor recommended repeating brain MRI which showed one new lesion. lumbar puncture was also positive for oligoclonal bands.
Avatar f tn Plus it's no longer helping me other than slightly helping with anxiety. I have an appointment soon with my neurologist. Is there anything else I can take? I can't handle being severely depressed with no energy! To make things worse I have tried 2 different SSRI's for my depression, but they make my tremors worse. I feel lost. I need a good combo of an SSRI with anti-tremor medication. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn 5/325 norcos over a year now I hate what these pulls have done to me I take a lot of pills for bipolar OCD anxiety disorder depression too any suggestions on the best way to get off these things I can't c/t because of my new job just started 3 months ago I'm scared and I feel so alone starting this tomorrow damage is done today would love suggestions and sorry if I sound like a broken record and if I don't respond it's because I am trying to figure out how without putting it in private message
Avatar f tn I try to be optimistic but find it difficult with 24/7 pain and anxiety of wondering if there is something more going on. When is enough enough. Is there anyone who can shed some light? Thank you for listening :) P.S. As a pianist, vocalist and speaker, the problems make it nearly impossible to do any of those things. Can anyone relate?
983954 tn?1280511486 My psychiatrist enrolled me in the Day Program offered through the hospital. It was 4 weeks of group therapy on depression, anxiety, coping skills, art therapy, etc. It was really tough to go to but I stuck with it. I went from not wanting to leave my house to volunteering for 2 hours a day, to getting a part time job, to now applying for full time work. It really boosted my confidence. Because the reality is you must treat the social anxiety to get ready for the work world.
Avatar m tn Example: how to play the piano, how to type, how to hold a bat and hit s baseball, how to rollerskate, how to swim. These are all things that require learning, and then you practice to get better at them. As a child we have been taught how to brush our teeth, how to MAKE our bed, how to bathe, how to sweep, mop, vacuum, wash dishes, do our homework, how to speak politely to people. These are all skills we learned.
Avatar n tn I chalked it up to anxiety and ignored it. It felt as if my arms were weak, however, I could do everything I needed to do like carrying the babies, etc. We quit daycare and found in home care again & my anxiety seemed to be going away, however the perceived arm weakness was not. I even started having hand tremors quite strongly in the mornings and whenever I had to use them. I visited my dr. who told me it was all due to the anxiety and stress of my busy life.
Avatar f tn Dear doctors!

333612 tn?1302886990 As a recovering person, you need information in order to realize what symptoms are normal during recovery. You also need to learn management skills so that you will know what to do to interrupt and control the stress and the symptoms when they occur. Through retraining you can improve your ability to remember, to concentrate, and to think clearly. Retraining involves practicing certain skills in a safe environment as you build confidence.
Avatar n tn Hi Lene, Welcome to MedHelp's Pain Management Forum. I am glad that you found us and took the time to post and share. My dad passed a several months ago and I can relate to your sorrow and grief. My heart goes out to you. Yes grief can increase pain. BUT don't assume that it's what is causing your pain. I had increased pain immediately after dad died....which I attributed to his he died in my arms.
