Anxiety relief for cats

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety relief for cats


1232362 tn?1333139006 I found some videos for accupressure for tmj and migraines and found I got some relief, particularly the tmj pts. This led me to wonder about trying this for Spirit's arthritic shoulder and the sneezing she's been suffering from if she's not in my humidified bedroom. Has anyone tried this?
379754 tn?1227127988 Since then I have had to be on wellbutrin and celexa for anxiety and depression. I was having trouble falling asleep,the blues, anxiety and a fear that something terrible was wrong with me. I have tried bioidenticals because an obgyn said it might help, it didn't. A new Dr. said not to take them because I am not in menopause, I had a test done that said I was still producing eggs. Although I had a hormone test done and I am low in testosterone and estrogen for my age.
1448936 tn?1363209946 I hope that I didn't ramble on too much and that I was able to offer alittle insight to my health anxiety. Thanks for the post and for listening. I hope you feel better soon!!!
Avatar f tn (the cat is no longer living with us after today, but I feel like the whole house is contaminated). Anyway, anyone on medication for anxiety or was for a previous pregnancy? My doctor said she could prescribe something, but that makes me nervous to be on medication while pregnant. I don't want that to harm my son either. But the stress might be worse...
Avatar n tn For what it is worth, why not drop by my journals and read the one about "Could it be?" and see if there is anything of value for you there. That's the hell of anxiety- its like herding cats when it comes to chasing down and properly identifying symptoms. Please stay with us and keep us up to date.

Avatar f tn What if there is something wrong and they are blaming it on panic/Anxiety. He felt my neck and my mother said that was for thyroid, if you have hyperthyroidism ( she has graves disease) then they can feel a lump there. She doesnt think i have that either because my symptoms dont match hers, plus he didnt find anything. Then i am thinking what about in my brain. I yawn alot at home, i shake every so often, my heart beats rapid ( 104 at the doctors office).
Avatar m tn I never noticed any symptoms before hand of any rabies at all. iv had panic attacks for the past month due to my anxiety and i had extremely bad heartburn last night after eating mexican food. i have gerd and possible ibs and so i have been having anxiety about my pains all week.
Avatar f tn Hello, I have this problem too and was puzzled about the anxiety reality, its not so much anxiety as it is a for of OCD. We have become aware of our breathing and thinking about it put it into all kinds of odd patterns. Harmless but miserable to say the least. It took six months for me to come to the grip that this is not medical but something in my " head" The good thing is, I can make it go away, and IT WILL GO AWAY.
548980 tn?1214826012 Have you tried a chiropractor for the vertigo? I have been twice and it has reduced the vertigo to some degree,I gave away the medications as everything I have tried doesnt work.As for the anxiety I do take a mind calmative only when I really need to,and I also go to a Reiki practioner and I find that it really does help,so good luck hope that I have been of some help to you.
Avatar m tn People in these forums pour out their hearts with their troubles and pains, and pour out what worked for them. Anxiety can be responsible for everything you mentioned, and a whole lot more. You may even have anxiety, plus another condition that feeds the anxiety, making it worse than if the other condition were treated. If you purposely involve yourself in doing things, anxiety will have to be satisfied with just intruding upon your consciousness part of the time.
480448 tn?1426952138 I survived another morning in my anxiety ridden world. Wow! I am PROUD of myself. And I have been up for an hour and 16 minutes. Oh yes, life IS good, stroke and all. I turn around and slowly pull back up the driveway, as if I am sightseeing. After all, there is no rush, I think I’ll enjoy the drive. Now, my only pressing decision is oatmeal vs. Cocoa Krispies for the little boy. Oh, and to tend to this nagging headache. A Headache! That is all it was and already, it is improving!
Avatar f tn I worry about losing my rescue dogs and cats if i were to have to go to a place for treatment as i have no one to help take care of them I am worried about continuing nerve and bone pain after I get off the vikes and what I am going to do to relieve it and hopefully the answers come clearer as I research more about non-narcotic ways of alleviating pain.
748543 tn?1463449675 For the past few weeks I have been throwing around ideas as to the best way to respond to this matter. You see a recent article ( Feb.3 , 2009 NY times) titled "Best treatment for TMJ May be Nothing" nearly made me clench my jaw to pieces. While well written, I found that the author, Ms. Brody, relied heavily on out dated and narrow perspective supplied to her by a small group of dentists.
Avatar m tn Along with adding the Fetzma at 20mg a day, I am also on Effexor (150mg), Trazadone at night for sleep(200mg), restoril at night for sleep(30mg), Klonopin for anxiety (1mg up to 3mg as needed.) I have taken so many different medications and I can honestly say that none of them made any significant difference in my depression. I get so depressed that I don't even have energy to cuddle and play with my kitty. Feeding her and changing her litter seems overwhelming most days.
428506 tn?1296560999 If you haven't done so talking to your doctor about about a sleep aid or something that helps your body rest would help too. I take trazadone for sleep and something for anxiety that helps my pain when it's really bad. It helps me relax and finally sleep. Last night was the first night I slept well in weeks. Take care.
Avatar m tn She stopped taking the xanax because she said if it is anxiety that is causing all this, she does not want to be medicated for it. Because medication only makes it worse in the long run. She has been taking the xanax for a week now and today is the first day she has stopped taking it. So she could be withdrawling? When she did take a xanax, 3 hours later she would be shaking and seemed like withdrawling. Let me know what you think.
Avatar n tn thanks for all your replies =] see this all started 2 years ago my anxiety comes .. stays for a while then goes away for a few months and comes back sometimes so randomly tor for a minute or two in months difference .. for no reason that's why I keep thinking it's not anxiety because it comes and goes weirdly and I don't know why .. usually when people have anxiety they always have it but I don't ...
480448 tn?1426952138 Therefore, I am going to share with you all what *I* know about these phenomena, and hopefully reassure some of you that this is par for the anxiety while irritating, maybe even is totally harmless. Derealization and depersonalization are two terms that are sometimes used interchangably. Truth is, they DO vary a little bit in their presentation....but overall, they also are VERY similar.

1819252 tn?1317095602 The weeks leading up to treatment were the worse for me. After my first shot I felt such a relief. If it would make you feel better to have him there then by all means do it, it won.t hurt and you will sleep better.
Avatar n tn That's why I've been wondering if this is really asthma or something else. i know for sure that this is not anxiety because my peak flow changes. I've been getting sick way too often and I'm right now sick. I was wondering as well if the pneumonia came back or if I was having some sort of respiratory infection but when I went to my PCP yesterday he game me only a cough sirup and I got really frustrated.
Avatar m tn Lyme seropositive, Generalized pain disorder, Poor sleep pattern, Dizziness, Marfanoid habitus, Marfan's syndrome, Chest pain, Anxiety disorder. (what I don't understand is why am I being diagnosed for these things and then not being treated???) The first round of medication I received was Doxycycline, which was a dreadful experience, however I finished the prescription 100%. Then after about a month I was told to try another round of antibiotics called Amoxicylin.

Avatar n tn He massaged this muscle spasm 3 times a week for about 2 months and the dizziness has not yet returned. It has been about 3 months now. What a relief. Just thought it might be useful info for you. Good luck in your recovery.
Avatar n tn im panicking, pacing, lying down, getting up, having obsessive thoughts about the stupidest things, that im going to die, that im going to have a siezure, etc. i had anxiety attacks in the past, and for years i was free of them. until now. i talked my fiance into taking a day off work so that i wont be alone, so i will have a few days to get through the worst of it. that will be wed/thurs/fri and then the weekend. after that the semester resumes...
Avatar f tn Could she go stay with them for a week or so, for some relief time for you? Anyway, just some thoughts on coping. Take care of yourself, and bless you for caring for your mother. Wish I had mine to care for, but wasn't in God's plan. Hugs & Prayers.
685623 tn?1283485207 Nanni, who is a paralegal, maintains that he continues to suffer emotional distress and should be compensated for that. He is asking for no less than $15,000, which is the minimum amount that will ensure the case will be heard in this particular court (Arlington Circuit Court). So…it certainly is a sad case and one that should have never happened (Nanni evidently picked up the dog as he and Smith here fighting and Smith attempted to hit him with the board).
369472 tn?1198749292 I tried the Tums like Jaybay suggested, they gave her some relief for several hours but nothing was longlasting. She stopped eating (KD dogfood, hamburger, dark meat chicken, bacon, some steak, chicken broth with shreds of chicken, a special mixture of raw eggs, honey, whole yogurt, babyfood, etc.) We were constantly giving her ice water chips and pedialyte ice chips, We realized if she lapped, she threw up everytime-if we gave her ice chips, she seemed to hold it down most of the time.
