Avatar n tn By the end of the day , you should have gleened enough information from all of these great folks to start formulating a plan to deal with you anxiety. Here is my two cents... I have suffered from Generalized Anxiety Disorder since 1990 and have been gone through varoius medications and consuling trying to deal with it.
398624 tn?1266273049 Can symptoms of anxiety last 24/7? The only relief I get is taking 1 xanax a day, but as soon as the xanax starts to wear off, I feel the symptoms come right back. Can anxiety get that bad?
Avatar m tn 1 week later I came across Kegel exercises on the web and started testing myself by squeezing my pelvic floor muscles. I did Kegels for about 5 minutes and at the end did 10 second squeezes about 5 times. I squeezed hard and probably use my abs in aiding in the squeezes. While doing them I didn’t feel any pain other than exhaustion of the muscles. Since then I have not done any more kegels. About 1.
Avatar n tn I've always been a worrier and my anxiety symptoms started after i thought i got an STD from this girl i slept with. I've been tested 8 weeks after and the doctor said i'm fine, but somehow i didn't believe him and I went to think I have MS or a brain tumor or something terrible. I feel dumb because I have 0 family history of health problems so doc pretty much threw all those autoimmune diseases out the window. Plus I'm extrememly strong and athletic so its all anxiety i hope/think.

Avatar f tn so I found this natural herb called kratom it is supposed to help with pain, anxiety, depression. I have been off my pain meds for 6 days and I am feeling pretty good but yesterday and today my back has been hurting. I am not going to go back to the narcotic pain meds so I was looking for a herbal remedy and came across this. I just wanted your alls thoughts or experiences on this.
Avatar f tn In your current situation, ideally a regular counselor would be one of your best options, but foregoing that I would suggest you try to extend your circle of friends within the UK, maybe by going to yoga classes (which are also great for anxiety). Other means of dissipating some of your negative feelings can be minimized through exercise, meditation, deep breathing exercises and accupunture.
Avatar m tn I'm still having a hard time believing your Dr put you on this med when you do not have depression, but anxiety. What was your Dr thinking?!! It really can make anxiety worse. Were you on Wellbutrin for a total of two weeks, or was it longer? I'm asking because the longer you're on a med the longer it can take to get over withdrawals if you don't taper. If was 4 weeks the withdrawal, if that's what you're going through, should go away soon.
Avatar m tn i am a late 30s man who has had terrible HIV anxiety now for many years. It is without a doubt the most crippling and depressing aspect of my otherwise lovely life. I am now in prolonged counselling to work on the issue and am beginning to understand why I suddenly panic over incidents which, by every medical doctor i consult, are zero risk. My last perceived exposure was last week while I was abroad. I had a massage and was offered a hand job at the end.
1139187 tn?1355710247 Success rates are also different for everyone. He could get 100% relief or none. It's impossible to predict how much relief it will bring.
758077 tn?1282599161 I would have thought the anxiety would have gone by now. I know sleep will help, but I need to get rid of the anxiety first.
Avatar n tn It is extremely likely that you are having exacerbated anxiety attacks because of the september 11 tragedy, and the loss of safety that comes from that. Talk more about that with your friends and family...let your emotions and fears come out in the open...and discuss them. That will help you the most.
605458 tn?1539232408 mark medications taken, such as antidepressents or antianxiety meds, or things like relaxation exercises and maybe how much relief was gotten. Something along those lines. Would that be possible? It would be a great help to see what is working and what isn't. Getting a visual that the anxiety is decreasing or that you are working really hard and not avoiding situations would be a really good incentive.
Avatar n tn Actually, gabapentin is used for anxiety, in higher doses than those used for nerve pain. It's off-label, of course, but isn't everything these days? I only know this because my psychiatrist is considering it for my anxiety, and that forced me to research it, otherwise I'd be clueless. How well it works is another matter. But heart rate isn't causing your anxiety here. Some people get an increased heart rate from anxiety, but most just feel like they do and actually don't.
3133475 tn?1342676015 Please help how i can relief from fear in heart, stress and anxiety fast......?
Avatar m tn Many of us have anxiety or a history with it and will understand you fully with no judgement. Heck I've had anxiety for 16 years. Some great years with minimal anxiety, some bad years where I thought anxiety would ruin my livelihood. Here I am now. Doing better, not perfect, but a lot better!

1156856 tn?1262428193 I NEED HELP! please... Even at home.. I have a rapid heart beat, chest pains, & shortness of breath. But when I try to go out to meet some people & when I have to start something new...ANXIETY. Let's just say, besides the things I'm comfortable doing & seeing everyday, EVERYTHING about EVERYTHING gives me severe anxiety, like I'm constantly nervous about something. I HATE IT! I want to find a part time job, I wanna go out and hang out with who ever WHENever.. but..
Avatar m tn Exercise helps with anxiety, deep breathing exercises, keeping your mind occupied with other things, staying busy with friends, and family. Doing things you are passionate about as well. But with this interfering with your life on a daily basis, you really need to talk to a psychiatrist about alternatives to what you're taking. There is a lot of help for you, and you can get your life back.
Avatar f tn I am interested if anyone had problems with breathing along with anxiety? everything I am experiancing now,looks like asthma. I am doing so many tests to see wether is this organic or somatic Two pulmonary drs said that spyrometry looks ok, but both of them want to see more tests:(...I am just too tired of my anxiety, tests and this imitation of life....
Avatar f tn Hey everyone. I'm am on here just to get some relief about a cyst causing me to have an ovary removed. I just had my right ovary removed 3/13/14 and at first I was staying at my moms house as she was taking care of me. I wanted to come home since I have to pay bills etc and have been through extreme anxiety since I've come home.
Avatar n tn Relaxation exercises or even physical activity can help reduce anxiety a little. I like deep breathing exercises, or music or a hot shower. Something you enjoy and feel competent at may also help you relax.
Avatar f tn Anyway, by the grace of God, this morning anxiety finally went away...I actually did not do anything for relief, just accepted it! One thing I did find important for me to do in the morning in order to reduce the intensity in my amxiety, were to eat! Even if it's just crackers...snack on something! Hunger and anxiety do not mix! Also you 've gotten over it once and you'll do it again! :) Good luck!
