Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety management training


Avatar n tn I would recommend that you consult a psychopharmacologist. That is a psychiatrist who has special training in the use of drugs that control anger, anxiety and depression.
Avatar n tn Doctor's unfortunately have no knowledge about how this occurs because in essence they would also need advanced training in electrical engineering. Fortunately for my wife I am a trained Engineer and it was I who uncovered this phenomena. If you are interested in learning more about this write back to me here and I will provide more information about it. Please also be advised that a number of electrical devices that you encounter throughout the day play a large role in your headaches.
Avatar n tn All of the advice on the internet it really for non-pooping or how to potty train. I really do not believe this to be a potty training issue since she went nearly 8 months with an accident maybe three or four times. Myself, her father and day care spend a lot of time with her talking to her and getting her to go often. She does not drink anything two hours prior to going to sleep. She is brought to the bathroom frequently. However, she does lie about what happens.
718468 tn?1232418047 While it still works for me I have decided to stop taking it because it generally now only lasts 3 to 4 hours before the anxiety rebounds. Because of the nature of Xanax-I do NOT multi-dose on it. If I take it in the afternoon and its worn off by 6 PM, that's it for the day-I won't take it again-even if I'm feeling worse than ever. It's a good med but at this point in time, it's not the right medication for me anymore.
4190741 tn?1370181432 “On my way home, I found the holy grail for stress management.” Padgett worked for Semper Fit at the time, but she is now a health educator and registered nurse for Navy Health Clinic Quantico, where stress management is part of her job, and where she rolled out an iRest program last month.
Avatar n tn Now that it's fall and it's getting darker sooner, I have noticed that I'm dragging myself through the day and finding it difficult to wake up in the morning. A week ago, I had an anxiety attack after eating 6 or 7 expresso beans and taking 1 excedrin. I have since tried to taper down on my caffeine because I wake up feeling like adrenaline is surging through my body and I can't come down. My psyhchiatrist cannot see me for two weeks and wants me to increase my Zoloft to 100 mg.
Avatar n tn I am surprised as a midwife you don't know there was no risk to you. You should ask your management for training on HIV with regards to your job. I am not being insulting in saying that but you ,like me and many on here have an unrealistic fear of catching HIV, by the way we thought we had come into contact with HIV. My wife is a midwife she told me once that babies have been breast feed by HIV positive mothers and never caught it.
Avatar n tn Or even consider a new doctor if he is behind the times. Your son deserves a Dr. that has the latest training in medication management.
Avatar f tn You don't have any medical training, so should stop trying to be a doctor. An HIV doctor can't diagnose from symptoms so you should stop wasting your time examining your body then creating unscientific HIV theories.
Avatar m tn I believe that I have developed a very serious anxiety disorder which now is leading to depression caused by MDMA and LSD. I think this is mainly caused by LSD but I'm sure the MDMA has tied into it. I just started taking LSD this past summer and have about 10 times total since. The very first couple times I took it, it was great but my last trip was a text book bad trip. Was at a concert and just wigged out.
Avatar f tn Hi. Approx 1yr ago I began feeling extremely tired, fatigued, lost my appetite and just didn't feel right - one major change in me was that I didn't want to go anywhere or didnt want any visitors, I also started having "episodes" which involved feeling nauseous, bouts of diarrhea, fuzzy thinking, massive rushes of negative energy/ adrenal rushes during which I thought I was going to die.
Avatar m tn Hi I am 16 and ever since i was 10 i had a wierd problem, where i thought about cars flying and hitting me, i grew older and it went, then came back but this time the thoughts were different i thought about random things going fast, just like they show sometimes on Adverts (Commercials) it then went and came back but worse and it made me get loads of anxiety symptoms, i had help by a mental health consiler but a few calming techniques didnt work, after this they went slightly then came back wor
Avatar n tn Anything related to your heart can be very disconcerting. Anxiety only creates more problems. There is peace in knowing your anxiety symptoms are shared by others and you are not going crazy. My father has been almost incapacitated by his fear of cancer and heart attack. Head to you local library/bookstore or even a site like and find some books to help you.
Avatar f tn My advice is to discuss approaching your anxiety disorder with the long acting drug Klonopin. It is my humble opinion that most PCP's don't have enough training in the use and management of they play it safe by scripting AD's. I have only taken AD's twice in my life for clinical depression, but I've always ended up also being scripted a benzo for my panic disorder which the AD's could not control. Some things to think about and I really wish you luck.
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 m tn This isn't really a question, it's more or less a walkthrough of what I am going through with anxiety problems and alcoholism in hopes that it might help someone out there. Had I read online about how common anxiety attacks after a night of drinking are, maybe I could have started my road to recovery sooner, and maybe some of you can.
Avatar f tn For me, taking the dog for a really long walk, swimming, or working out can really help my anxiety. Don't forget that at times when your anxiety is really bad, your diet is very important. Reach for the fresh fruits and vegetables whenever you feel peckish. Don't eat too close to bed time as that disrupt your sleep. Always go to bed thinking positive thoughts, so don't watch a horror movie or a depressing programme before retiring to bed. Music is great therapy for me.
Avatar n tn You could report to a doctor, who would screen you for anxiety and/or depression (often using a questionnaire, the value in that approach is in follow-up results to see if you're changing, for the better or worse). I've many anxiety management tips in my profile's Journal if you're keen on self-help methods.
Avatar n tn If this curbs his anxiety and helps his violent side, will he need this forever? Does behavior management training eventually take the place of this med, or because my son is extreme, will he need this as well as the training? He is so young and so maybe I shall need to wait to see the outcome, but have people had to stay on this med. well into adulthood?
Avatar n tn Well, the number of bowel movements a day is dependent on a few factors such as inherent bowel training, dietary factors, hormonal/ endocrine status, infections, inflammations, stress, anxiety, drugs/ medications etc. While a few of the factors can be controlled, others are unlikely to respond. You could try making a few changes in the diet and avoiding stress.
Avatar f tn I was told back in 2003 that I have mild mitral valve prolapse. I since then have suffered from anxiety and panick attacks. I get frequent palpitations, which makes me panic and have a bowl movement. I've done numerous EKG, heart ultrasound and holster monitors. They all came back normal. Could my heart have changed since then?The last one was 2 years ago. I am active work out 6 days a week, cardio and weight training. Should I be worried about a heart problem?
Avatar f tn This typically results from excessive stress and/or anxiety experienced during waking hours. If so, some basic stress management will help, along with getting some good sweaty exercise most every day. Very important for you to set and keep a consistent sleep-wake schedule 7 days a week, especially a consistent wake time. Allow no more time in bed than you normally need. Don't sleep in, and don't nap, because that may in effect steal sleep from you the following night.
Avatar n tn Ask your pediatrician for a referral to a psychologist or child behavior specialist who can provide Parent Management Training, Parent Effectiveness Training or Behavior Modification techniques (all basically the same approach). The psychologist will help you improve how you communicate with your child and teach him to engage in desirable behaviors. In the meantime, there is an excellent book called The Kazdin Method by Dr. Alan Kazdin that will help you get started.
Avatar m tn They include methods for management of both stress and anxiety, in addition to a good sleep supportive lifestyle. There's no good reason why exercise especially earlier in the day should negatively impact your sleep. For most people, intense exercise increases NREM or deep sleep, which is when the body repairs and rejuvenates itself. There's no reason to think you're any different.
521840 tn?1348844371 This means that a psychologist applies scientific findings to provide effective treatments. Psychologists diagnose and treat psychiatric disorders (like depression or anxiety). Psychologists are trained to diagnose psychiatric disorders using assessment tools called psychological tests. These tests measure how well a person is thinking, learning, and processing information as compared to other people his age. Psychologists also provide psychotherapy.
Avatar f tn I've finally decided I need to get professional help for my stress management, social anxiety and recurring mild depression. I'm just not sure if I should see a psychologist or a social worker. I found a psychologist that was highly recommeded but she's not accepting new patients. Her receptionist recommended another psychologist or his wife who is a social worker. Both are on my insurance. Yay! So, just wondering what the difference is between a psychologist and a social worker.
Avatar m tn two years ago i felt pain in my stomach cruciating from side to side for more than two weeks i didnt go to hospital because i thought it was just muscle pain associated with training and took a lots of ibuprofen to relieve the pain. after sometime i felt better.
Avatar m tn But this can be controlled through proper technique of masturbation or through 'Press and Squeeze technique' or Male Kegel's exercise- training of pelvic muscles to control urine flow and ejaculation. But before any proper management,you condition must be ruled to see what causes this abnormal urine leakage.
Avatar f tn It is a new procedure as you mentioned and physicians who work with this device must have specific training and expertise in the management of treatment-resistant depression. My guess is that a majority of physicians don't have this type of training so they don't work with the device and therefore patients don't hear about it. Looks interesting though and I hope it works for you.
Avatar n tn If you can get some behavioral therapy, I strongly recommend you and your husband start working with a professional as soon as possible. Ask for parent management training, parent effectiveness training or training in behavior modification (all the same general approach). I would not recommend individual play therapy for him until after you have the behavior under control--thats the first priority. I think you have so much work to do with this child that you need a professional to help.
