Anxiety nos

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety nos


Avatar f tn What is the difference between GAD and Anxiety NOS? I've had symptoms that could fall under acute stress disorder, panic disorder, general anxiety disorder, and depression. Sometimes the symptoms can fit in one catagory and then switch over to a different catagory. For example, in the past I've had frequent panic attacks throughout the day. Overtime, I've found triggers (more trivial than life threatening) for some while others just happen.
Avatar n tn Both my twins were dx with pdd-nos at age 16 mths & after intense EI they have made huge improvements & now (at age 4 yrs) only one qualify for special ed, the other did not inspite of me trying twice with the school district but everytime the same story of "he's doing academically good & no issues in preschool classroom". I am happy that my son is smart & enjoying school but at the same time i am spending sleepless nights on wondering if he needs some services .
Avatar f tn Just wondering if anyone had a similar experience My son was diagnosed with mild PDD-NOS when he was 4. He is now almost 6. Ever since "interventions" started at school, he seems to be more withdrawn Before "interventions" he would participate in circle time, walk in line, play with children some, do some academic work. Basically now he needs MORE help than prior to interventions.
Avatar f tn developmentally delayed, ADD, Low IQ, you name it. He suffers from anxiety, has some odd mannerisms (ok, a lot), knowledgeable about areas he has an interest in (science), depression, etc. I think he is in the autism spectrum, PDD-NOS. School is trying to help but nothing seems to be working. IEP's are hard since his academic abilities versus working level are not at such a degree for a learning disability.
Avatar n tn My 8 year old boy was diagnosed with PDD NOS/Anxiety and is very high functioning except that he suffers from anxiety. He has said for a year and a half that he is tormented by the noise,chatter, laughing in his head. He says he hears constant chatter and laughing all the time. He says that the voices will talk about him and he fights them all day long. He is very present to reality, is doing well academically, learned to ride a bike wants to have friends.
Avatar n tn There is not a time when he doesn't have them. He has lots anxiety around peers and worries he will be in trouble. Risperdal,Zoloft Buspar, Abilfy all have not worked. Could their be some kind of inner ear problem or tumor in his head. He has consistently complains that the bridge of his nose is in pain and of headaches. Could someone please shed some light on this I at my wits end.
Avatar f tn I have a 4 1/2 yr old with a dx of pdd-nos that he got at the age of 2 1/2 but now other doctors diagree. They think he's just fine with anxiety problems. I see very little anxiety problems with him and in the testing that scored the lowest out of everything. He is very stuck on things being the same way all the time. He spins in circles without getting dizzy constitintly. He is very aggressive with others but does have friends and is finnaly giving eye contact with little coxing.
799827 tn?1237599735 From your post I presume she has a diagnosis of PDD NOS? What part of the diagnostic criteria for an autistic spectrum disorder did she fail on? I am in the UK, and the definition of 'education' in the UK is not limited to just reading and writing. It includes social interaction and play skills, life skills, emotional regulation and anxiety regulation etc. So, in short, I disagree with the school. Is she in a mainstream school?
Avatar f tn I just began seeing a new therapist who has classifed me as having Anxiety NOS (not otherwise specified). My doctor prescribed me Zoloft, which I will begin taking this weekend, but I'm terrified to go through changing drugs again. I will, as I know it can help, but I'm wondering if there is anybody else out there who feels this way. I feel anxious whether I'm at home, at the store, work, anywhere.
Avatar f tn Health anxiety is quite common in this community. when you posted on the HIV forum, I assume they told you there was nos risk since you had protected sex. In my experience with health anxiety, if I search for a symptom online to try to link it back to something I believe I have, then I will always find it. When you got tested how long did they say you had to wait to get the test?
Avatar f tn After a few assessments, the diagnoses was changed to mood disorder- not otherwise specified (NOS). The psychiatrist that I was assigned said he didn't want to diagnose me with the most serious condition right off the bat. I spoke with the regular therapist today and she said when I first started seeing her she diagnosed me with adjustment disorder. She told me today that she had changed her diagnoses to anxiety disorder with panic attacks.
1540869 tn?1351217613 Now I know this is a question I should ask my therapist I have seen a couple therapists and the only diagnosis I've gotten is mood disorder nos. I've thought I've always had add but am not going to dianose myself. I'm not asking for a diagnosis from you guys just an opinion and maybe if you've expeirenced some of the same symptoms.

Avatar f tn If I accelerated my heart rate to a certain, seemingly mild, point I would get horrible chest pains accompanied by dizziness, shortness of breath and sometimes nausea. My doctor said it was anxiety and prescribed an albuterol inhaler for before I exercise, and it worked well enough for a while. But as I began with my depression, it got worse to where I would get so anxious about school I couldn't get out of bed for my chest pain and nausea.
915369 tn?1355318410 I was diagnosed by a psychiatrist after wrongly being diagnosed with psychosis nos, social anxiety disorder, and borderline personality disorder by a court ordered psychiatrist who only saw me once every 3 months and never actually talked to me. The medication I'm on now helps A LOT, I was living in a different world before, one I hoped I would never see my next bday every year. I'm very confident that the psychiatrist I was just seeing was bang on her money with this diagnosis.
Avatar f tn Did I say not to get the birth certificate signed? No I said let the father have his rights until the court makes a decision on custody.
Avatar n tn Stress and anxiety seems to be affecting me more and more each day, especially since the semester is coming to an end (I'm a college student). Basically, I'm not sure how much anxiety is too much and if I should seek help to control it or not. Also, what are the physical symptoms that can arise when someone is experiencing too much anxiety/stress? I usually feel like I have no energy whatsoever, even after getting a good nights sleep.
2010625 tn?1329375656 I am diagnosed with MDD (Major Depressive Dissorder), and GAD (Generalized Anxiety Dissorder). No SSRI meds have worked for either. My doctor has me on Lamotragine (Lamictal), because it is the only thing that has worked for my depression. I do believe I have some Anxiety issues, but I think some of the things I am experiancing are outside the realm of Anxiety. I have been cycling through emotions, and having spikes and falls of energy through out the day accomanied with racing thoughts.
Avatar m tn 1) am a severe hypochondriac for the last few months my anxiety starts with i got a rash in my body , suddenly i googled and they told me that its because of aids , i was worried for several days and took hiv test , the result came as negative 2) after 2 weeks i got an ulcer in my mouth and again i started thinking that am suffered with oral cancer , ulcer gone after 4 days and my worry still there , i consulted 3 ENT and 4 DENTIST, all said my oral health is fine from there onwards i started
1384357 tn?1322782506 i agree they are one of the worst symptons that are related to anxiety,maybe you could talk to us about why your anxiety started four months ago.
Avatar n tn I have been to see a psychatrist and she said I had an acute case of anxiety NOS and OCD, I get the shakes and I hyperventilate. I am an engineer, and just want to know what the odds, are here. We are both Caucasian, and she claims that she gets tested once a year at the Gny and says she is clean. I read sites like the cdc and went to planned parenthood and they both said 3-6 months avg 25 days for accurate results.
6530778 tn?1456887401 Hi. I suffer from OCD & anxiety. I go for therapy & take meds which help tremendously.
Avatar n tn The list would go on and on, but I think you get the point. Is all this anxiety typical of a PDD/NOS child or is he a PDD child that might also have some other kind of anxiety disorder. He has been checked by a neurologist and showed a normal EEG. He currently receives 2 hours of OT a week. He was in a special ed preschool but will not return in the fall b/c we feel he is too high functioning, especially in his language. We are enrolling him in a "normal" child care center in July.
Avatar n tn The prognosis from chest pain from this cause is very good and should overly concern you. We also know that people with anxiety can have angina like chest pain with other normal cardiac testing. It is possible to have one or both of these problems going on. The "vagal" or passing out symptoms you describe is often associated with anxiety. The word anxiety is often taken to mean that you are "crazy" or that you don't handle stress well, but this is often not the case.
Avatar n tn He is at our home two nights a week with his three year old sister. I have two boys ages five and nine. He seems to have a high level of anxiety for his age. For instance he seems to be afraid of just about everything and he is very clingy. He follows me or my husband around constantly and if my boys are at their fathers house he doesn't seem to know how to play by himself. He cries very easily and becomes very emotional about very minor things.
Avatar f tn I just keep thinking if he was hiv positive surly someone would no as he nos absolutly everyone and he is never without a girlfriend or just a ladyfriend he is seeing.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm really hoping I can hear from a medical doctor or anyone with insight on this question. My daughter is turning 7 in March. While she exhibits many "typical" behaviours, she has several behaviours that I am concerned about. Since she was 4, we noticed repetivive hand movements. She wriggles her fingers, about shoulder length at various times in the day.
Avatar n tn Also, many children with sm are often misdiagnosed with ADD/ADHD as well as expressive/receptive disorder. So, having a child suffering from anxiety (and selective mutism is a severe form of anxiety - usually social anxiety or generalized) misdiagnosed with some other issue is not uncommon at all. As I mentioned in my first reply, our child was thought to be mute due to trauma caused by abuse.
