Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety nursing care plan


Avatar n tn (I used to help arrange hospice care for my patients when I was still a nurse). Usually they will develop a care plan in accordance with your mom's doctor. Any issues such as pain or severe shortness of breath will be dealt with quickly, the aim for hospice is comfort care and death with dignity. They will also help provide supplies that your mom may need...bedside commode if she can't walk far without being very short of breath for example.
480448 tn?1426952138 I thought an accomplishement thread might not be a bad idea...a place where those of us "fighting the good fight" can come and share our little (or big) victories. I got the idea b/c I wanted to share with you all an accomplishment I had myself today. But before I get to that...please share anything...goals you set for yourself, and how you went about meeting them. And IMO...there ARE no small "wins" when dealing with anxiety and panic.
Avatar f tn OK, I'm a tad confused here, so bear with me. Did you have a problem with anxiety BEFORE you saw the doctor about what I'm assuming was some sort of stomach trouble? And now, since you saw this doctor two weeks ago, you've had an on-going panic attack? Correct me if I have anything wrong here. Your doc put you on quetiapine (Seroquel) which is an antipsychotic. You said it knocked you out the first night, but now you need "lots more" to fall asleep.
Avatar m tn What you're experiencing is not at all silly and very common. I've never encountered what you are but I think anxiety is anxiety. If you haven'y sought help with all of this you should, therapy can help a lot, and if need be there is medication for the panic attacks. Anxiety can make us obcess over our health, and the fear and worry feeds our anxiety creating more's a vicious cycle.
Avatar m tn I don't know what other meds I could take, its like the anxiety is taking over and I felt like seven months ago that I was finely getting over this monster. I don't know what else I can do, every night I go to bed never knowing how I'll feel the next day. And I'm tired of it!!! I have no energy in the morning and I really am tired the next day. I'm getting to the point that my emotions are shutting down.
Avatar f tn and increased to 75, 150 and the maximum dosage is 225 mg. However, I am under the care of a p-doc and he has me on 300 mg. per day with 20mg. Celexa and 30 mg. of Risperdal. Honestly, I am still having issues but I am willing to give it more time as the Celexa was only introduced 3 wks. ago. Effexor is a wonderful antidepressant but I have been on the drug for 8 yrs. and feel it is losing it's effectivness for me.
Avatar dr m tn Many people with panic disorders can be treated either conservatively with therapy of stress control and relaxation methods, but many people end up being placed on an anti-anxiety medications. Any time I see patients in my practice with anxiety disorders, in almost every case, the person prefers not to sleep on his or her back. The reasons for this is that due to certain anatomic factors, if the person lays flat on his or her back, then due to gravity, the tongue falls back partially.
1486478 tn?1307466597 Those hurt, and bring more waves of anxiety. I just want to know if pvcs from high anxiety eventually go away after anxiety recovery, because I'm just about recovered from anxiety itself, but the remaining symptom of pvcs doesn't help matters any. They're manageable only when I'm in a good mood, because they're not every other beat. I feel normal, and then every about 10 or 15 minutes, I get the strong one that ruins my mood and brings anxiety. I just want them gone, it at all possible.
Avatar n tn This spring and last (at the same exact time, when oak pollen was strong) I got the constant burping and anxiety. For me, taking some Tussin product helped somewhat. Anxiety and allergies seem to go hand-in-hand for me and can produce some weird symptoms. Sometimes it helps just to know that's all it is. Hang in there!
612551 tn?1450025775 Thanks, my error not doubt... depression is the key difficulty. It may be the driver of anxiety - she is being treated for both. But, depression is the long term condition and has been diagnosed in several of her blood relatives. She has 4 siblings, all older, who have not demonstrated depression problems, but nephews, and nieces of hers - maybe it is common to skip a generation. That said our son was diagnosed with depression before my wife was.
Avatar n tn However, when I noticed the effects (for years but I denied them) I was way to far gone to be able to handle it by myself. Having worked in the ER and also LTC (long term care, aka nursing homes) where they hand out Xanax like candy, I was extremely predjudiced against taking what I called "dope". I have dealt with both drug seekers and addicts coming off of this **** so hard I felt like I was dying with them because I am very empathetic.
1912832 tn?1322191954 soooooo now we are at our PVC's are due to stress? and anxiety? thats all it is? I get having anxiety and having a palp here and there. But for us.. like me, who get one every 5 minutes alllll dayyyy longggg... that is anxiety??? really!??.. thats amazing to me, and upsetting. to realize. I remember I followed the casey anthony trial. ANd AT THIS TIME I had no pvc's for months and month and months.. maybe one every now and then, this was my " normal" time. ..
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone has been on birth control pills and have suffered from anxiety or depression issues? I have been on the pill for 11yrs now and cant take how I am feeling anymore. I went on the pill for irregular periods, but since then I have been feeling blah, libido has decreased severely, I have sinus problems- I found out I have no allergies- so I think it is related to axiety, I worry constantly about everything; I get so nervous I get light headed sometimes.
480448 tn?1426952138 ONE important thing to remember that I learned, and have never forgotten is that these two effects CANNOT exist without anxiety.....but that anxiety can exist without these sensations. Derealization is basically a change, an alteration in the PERCEPTION or experience of the external other words...everything LOOKS very strange, very "unreal" (movie like, in my experiences). Depersonalization is a subjective experience of unreality of one's self. So the difference is...
808293 tn?1238605783 remember, they are usually well educated, well informed people who have heard about all kinds of people who are suffering like you and they may know more about what you are going through then you might think. No matter what, don't give up on yourself. And take care of your anxiety first... then worry about your other issues, because the anxiety is just going to make it all worse. Keep us updates as to what the psychologist says. Good luck, don't lose faith.
477746 tn?1254788147 It is characterized by a climate of distrust and conflict between the patient and the care team related to the use of opioids for pain. Its etiology is pain that is inadequately treated, leading to patient demands for opioid analgesia that are interpreted by the care team as being excessive.
849476 tn?1241383115 Well, tell that to someone who suffers too with GAD (generalized anxiety disorder). I take clonopin for the anxiety but lately it's doesn't seem to help. I also take Atenolol, 50mg. daily for the palpitations. It seems to help for about 3 hrs. and then things start up again. I also have hypertension and take atacand, norvasc, and clonidine for it. I am at a loss as to what to do. I've had a stress/echo and a couple of echocardiograms and have been told that things look good.
Avatar f tn I'll admit I'm a worrying fool then and I'll do everything I can to stop the hypochondriac thoughts then. I'll comply 100% with the psychiatric care and medication plan. Put my mind at ease that I'm not going to have a heart attack when no one is home. That I won't leave my son and husband with less then $100000 in life insurance and heart broken. And besides the extreme thoughts, think of how disruptive dizziness is. I can't think clearly when it happens and feel clear headed when its over.
Avatar n tn My husband is 28 y/o and was recently admitted to the hospital with a DX of Malnutrition, Ketoacidosis, and Anxiety. For the past couple years he has been dealing with anxiety issues and frequent panic attacks. Many times following a bad attack he gets severe nausea and vomiting. His diet has been minimal/poor due to this nausea and work schedule combined. He has always been skinny (140-145 lbs) but seemingly healthy with no prior DX.
139792 tn?1498589250 But in a nursing home, two things have changed. First, there's a sign that you cannot take care of yourself anymore. And then there's the sign that you know you only have limited time to live, which is different for an 80-year-old." Elderly worried about direction country is headed The research also confirmed that worry and anxiety contribute to depression in centenarians.
1311328 tn?1273669292 Thank You, I am not doing nursing with people any longer as I choose to give it a break and continue with veterinary nursing. At the time it was hard being around people and I find it a lot easier being around animals. I still have to be around other staff and owners bringing their animals in although it is not as hard as working in a hospital for me.
Avatar n tn I bet your anxiety stems from your unhappiness at your job. Years ago I had a job I loved and it was pretty easy to get up every morning even though I had anxiety because I was excited to get there. 3yrs later though, I was hating that job and my anxiety upon waking became so bad that I called in sick alot and eventually lost it. As soon as I didn't have to get up to go to a job I hated every morning, the anxiety eased up.
1219499 tn?1410753330 So after I lost Ruby I was told for my next pregnancy I would have a lot of intervention and be under the high risk clinic at the hospital. The plan was low dose asprin, progesterone the entire pregnancy, stitch in my cervix at 12 weeks and heparin shots. Well I'm pregnant and so far they have been fobbing me off regarding the heparin. I am under the impression from a few of my friends on here, that I should have started it the minute I had a positive hpt.
980681 tn?1248487378 This is my first pregnancy, and I recently had a terrible anxiety attack and took 2 valium 5mgs. Im almost seven weeks. I dont plan taking this unless its prn/as needed. Being as I have severe anxiety causing dangerous black outs and loss of consciousness . So in weighing pros and cons, I took this medicine. As long as its months between each use- I shouldnt have any birth defect issues, correct? I know the risk of benzos. Thank you Ps... Just off topic and for giggles...
Avatar n tn Its really not as free as people say thanks to having to buy pumping systems, nursing bras, pads etc, but at the same time formula ranges from $20+ unless you make it yourself. I had to formula feed my first, and as she got older, the more often I found myself buying it. Probably more expensive than breastfeeding, but you gotta do what you gotta do!
Avatar f tn I am very frustrated with some doctors b/c they tend to blame it on stress from nursing school. I just finished nursing school and plan to take my boards in January and I feel this is getting in the way of me focusing on my nursing career. What I learned from school is that some arrythmias can give you chest pain and dizziness, especially A-Fib and SVT's. I just feel like no one listens and understands when I tell them about what is happening to me.
Avatar f tn Scalp hair loss can happen for a number of reasons- some of them are stress, iron deficiency, thyroid function being off, and adrenal disorder, such as Cushing's. Take care of yourself! Going to nursing school can involve a lot of use of your back in clinical (been there). You don't want to go with a bad back. And your child needs you to be healthy if possible. So, please go in to the emergency room- have someone take you or if you are having those symptoms right now, call 9-1-1.
1764174 tn?1313462480 I'm glad that your able to do that for yourself, strive for the best and prepare for the worst, hopefully your care group is successfully working out for you, if it's been more then 2 weeks and the anxiety medicine isn't working, give your doctor a call and see what your options are some anxiety medications make your anxiety worse, that's what happened with me when I was taking zoloft, I wish you all the best!
