Anxiety relief tactics

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety relief tactics


Avatar f tn The good news is, there are a lot of treatments out there for anxiety...relief comes, it just takes time, work and patience on our part. There really isn't a "magical cure" per se, but learning how to cope is possible with therapy, and there are a lot of different meds that have helped countless people control their symptoms. You're stuck in the anxiety cycle, where your anxiety triggers scary thoughts and fears, which of course then triggers more anxious feelings.
371848 tn?1206211434 I went to a doctor and told her what I was experiencing and she told me that It was probably a panic disorder and depression, so she prescribed me Lexapro. I took that for five days, and it just made me feel worse, and made me have more anxiety, so I quit taking it, and the attacks lessened... well, on Feb. 25th, i had a dentist appointment and found out that I had an abcess tooth.. and he put me on antibiotics to get rid of the infection before i had it pulled.
1486478 tn?1307466597 Seems like that reset everything back to the way it was before recovery tactics, as the pvcs got bad again, and even the anxiety symptoms like achiness, headache, etc came back. Symptoms are just about gone again, but the pvcs are still hanging around, as they seem to be the last to go like they were last time.
Avatar m tn Thanks for the help guys, I know that a lot of the anxiety was from me worrying about the anxiety! Im going to see a doctor on wednesday (I also suspect I have a prostate infection, no biggie). Im glad I didnt get any comment telling me that masturbation will send me to hell, as I saw a lot of that stuff on my google searches.

657036 tn?1229927156 for example, i took up yoga, attempted meditation exercises as well as the anxiety relief tactics i was taught by my psychiatrist, acetaminophen and ibuprofen, robaxisil, tylenol 1s.. the only two things that have assisted with the pain were zopiclone and ativan (which friends have given me upon learning of my condition). basically, i'm curious to know if anyone has experienced any sort of similar pain, and if you have any recommendations whether they be medicinal or exercise related.
135886 tn?1214368635 Took an ambien, thought that will knock me out. Heck no, made me not able to walk a strait line, but still in full withdrawls, no sleep, no relief. Then in the am I couldn't even get the kids to school. I cannot quit this way. I'm going to a sub doctor for help, I'm scared. Anyone know how the sub feels, works etc....?
202436 tn?1326477933 How long does is usually take for some relief from these annoying things? I feel like I'm going crazy because the tics I currently have are making it hard for me to sleep and eat. My jaw and head hurt all the time and I feel like a freak out in public.
Avatar f tn Don’t become discouraged. Dietary changes and stress-relief tactics should provide a significant dose of relief. For more insurance, combine them with one of the alternative therapies noted below. Once you have a system for controlling your symptoms, IBS will surely put less of a cramp in your style. Manage your stress ‘ Since stress is one of the factors known to trigger an IBS flare-up, learn to short-circuit it with meditation, yoga, or a simple breathing exercise like this one.
Avatar n tn I hate Pfizer USA because they use underhanded tactics here in the States to keep generic companies from producing their product after patent experation. They even go as far as to pay off companies that may potentaly want to make their generic. They have done this with Viagra also. A 10 year old drug and still no generic in the US because Pfizer strong arms companies that wish to make their product equivelent even after patent experation. Their like the damn Mafia here in the states.
9709782 tn?1405429045 She started me on anti-depressant, and when it wasnt strong enough to quite control my anger, anxiety and bursting into tears for no reason, she referred me to a psychiatrist. Both my psychiatrist and primary care agree now that I am over 40, some of my symptoms are perimenopause, and some of my other conditions are affected by it. So now, I am being treated for ADD, depression, anxiety, hypothyroid, diabetes, high blood pressure, cholesterol, migraines and i forget what else.
Avatar f tn I was sitting at my desk not doing anything particularly stressful or anxiety producing and all of a sudden my heart started to beat very fast. I went to the nurse who quickly called 911. They clocked me with a hr of 214 after hooking me up and started an IV and had to administer 2 doses of adenosine for it to slow down. I'm going to see a cardiologist in a few days but am anxious to understand what's happening. For those of you with SVT, did it happen all of a sudden?
Avatar m tn The ultimate goal (as was stated above in one of the other posts), is pain relief. The medicines will continue to work longer for pain relief than for energy or euphoria. I really hope the epidurals help for your pain. I have had 6 lumbar epidurals so far and the pain relief seems to lasts longer after each repeat epidural. I don't know what your specific back conditions are but they work great for some and not at all for others. Did you get any relief from the first epidural?
Avatar n tn For one, they have a fairly high failure rate. You may get relief in the short-term but then the problems may return. And those surgeries seem fairly risky. But even worse, many gyns do a hysterectomy for prolapse and having the uterus removed increases your risk of (another) prolapse not to mention all the other nasty after effects of hysterectomy (with or without ovary / gonad removal). I will be happy to expand on these effects if you want. Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn Actually, Paxil another SSRI has been used for your type of anxiety with great results plus pain relief but has serious weight gain in some people. You may want to try that one instead. Also, let them give you something for pain if they will. You deserve pain relief until this is figured out. Now, if those meds don't help then go back and ask for Cymbalta that is an SNRI. Close but works on a diffenent neurotransmitter.
366811 tn?1217426272 But it is always in the head -for everyone and for every sensation and feeling, good or bad. What makes panic and anxiety especially difficult is that the triggers and source material are not always as easy to pin down as a hot burner or a hammer. If they were, we wouldn't be having this problem, now would we? The point is that there are no physical symptoms without some mental (in the brain) component. And in fact, the origin of many feelings with physical aspects is in the brain.
Avatar f tn Do not stop using tramadol suddenly, or you could have unpleasant withdrawal symptoms such as anxiety, sweating, nausea, diarrhea, tremors, chills, hallucinations, trouble sleeping, or breathing problems. Talk to your doctor about how to avoid withdrawal symptoms when stopping the medication. Do not crush the tramadol tablet. This medicine is for oral (by mouth) use only. Powder from a crushed tablet should not be inhaled or diluted with liquid and injected into the body.
Avatar f tn You can find some natural things to help with sleep, anxiety, energy and so forth. Make sure you pick up some good vit/min too. These will take time to kick in, so I would Eat very Healthy to get those vit/min in you right away. Look for things that will help build the immune system and some antioxidants. Drink and Drink tons of fluids and mostly water. You can find all kind of good vit/min to add to the water, like Emergen-c or Airborne.
Avatar n tn With this advice, several people I e-mail with have been able to actually handle the drug and the titrations and get some relief. Neurontin definitely made me fat! I never got great relief with it either -- it was only marginal. I now take effexor -- which has relieved my parasthesias, twitching, and burning pains greatly. Plus, it tends to inhibit the appetite and is a bit of a "happy pill" for me.
Avatar n tn Hi, OHC, I'd say as soon as THAT reading starts repeating the same ideas, it's time for some mystery, sci fi, or funny books... use diversionary tactics... Please send us some sunshine!

Avatar n tn Some of these comments are awful. Honestly, no matter what is going on anymore, the child needs to go to sleep, my kids have had the same "stalling" tactics. All you need to do is tell her that everynight she will be in bed by so and so time. If you read a book, then read the book, tell her you love her, and now its time for bed. Period! You'll answer questions in the morning, but right now its sleep time, she can talk to her dad before the bedtime, or in the morning.
Avatar n tn Also, I have a tremendous amount of responsibility with work and family, stress is a serious threat to my health, and if these are scare tactics, I feel it is extremely irresponsible and unethical. If anyone else tells me how great it is I stopped smoking, I will start screaming. What concerns me most now is misdiagnosis. What I need to know is if anyone else had a similar experience with a physician or similar diagnosis.
Avatar f tn I saw my GP again and she recommended another PPI and she gave me a small prescription. That was the only thing that was giving me any relief at all. In May I had so much pain in my side on top of pain in my chest that I drove myself to the hospital. I had a heart attacks 3 years ago so the chest pain had me really scared. They did a cath, my heart is great. Then they did an endoscope of my stomach. It came back with severe inflammation and old bile in my stomach.
Avatar n tn i hate telling dr.'s this is happing they think its anxiety or think i'm crazy. i just found out i also have gastroparisis with and unknown origin. have loss tones of weight and feel weak. i'm also very cold when everyone else is confortable. the vibrations i feel drive me crazy mostly because i don't know why i'm feeling this way.
Avatar m tn Every so often the doctors will pull out the bone mass or heart health scare tactics, but being hypo is also very unhealthy for the heart and all other parts of the body. If your doctor has any studies to support the bone mass assertion I would be curious to see them.
148588 tn?1465782409 Trying to turn it around on Obama because he doesnt fall for the extortion tactics doesnt work, people know better. Well, shall we say most people? And that there pass you are talking about? One year was given because the corporations were not ready yet, did not have everything in place, and lest we forget? Republicans asked for that delay and are now using it as a weapon.
