Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety scale


765775 tn?1366028291 I was able to locate this and I am posting it so that it may assist our members in understanding the Pain Scale. I found it quite helpful. THE PAIN SCALE 0 – Pain free. Mild Pain – Nagging, annoying, but doesn't really interfere with daily living activities. 1 – Pain is very mild, barely noticeable. Most of the time you don't think about it. 2 – Minor pain. Annoying and may have occasional stronger twinges.
Avatar m tn I know we messed up and will deal with the wife issue independently. On a scale of 1 to 10, what is the likelihood of contracting HIV or STDs if he happened to have any? Would you get tested if you were in my shoes for HIV? Also, in general, what is the HIV viral count like in precum? Thanks for your time.
Avatar n tn My recent history is a steady dose of anxiety attacks. I used to be a fun healthy firefighter/emt, but these attacks have taken over my life. It seems that my limited knowledge of medicine has taken over. Any pain (and it seems I have more everyday) is thought to be something serious. I have been to the doc probably 10 times in the last two years and have been given a clean bill of health. I have been having bouts of dizziness (hyperventilation?
Avatar f tn Yes it could be anxiety if it last only 3-4 minutes its a symptoms of anxiety I had that symptom
Avatar f tn Hi, I just stopped taking hydrocodone this week, I was taking anywhere from 4 a day to 20 day depending on what was going on in my life. I feel today I am experiecing alot of anxiety. It feels like my body is just tied up in knots. My brain keeps telling me to take a pill it will take the edge off.. I did give all my pills to my husband, he has control of them ( it is was the only way I could do it was finally tell someone I had a problem) I feel like I am not going to be happy again either.
Avatar f tn We are all just like you, we have suffered depression, anxiety, and been paranoid about our health situation. You have to be positive and keep in mind that it is treatable, its not the end of the world, its jus a symptom and a hormonal imbalance that is causing you to feel the way you do, you are not alone, look at it like your on a trip and this part of the road is full of potholes, once you get off this stretch, things will smooth out.
Avatar n tn As it is very difficult to weine yourself off and may cause anxiety to return on a larger scale. As recommended by my doctor I exercised daily. I did a minimum of 30 minutes of cardio exercise to raise my heart rate to around 140-160 (I'm 25). I did that a couple hours before bed during the week with exceptions on weekends. I cut out ALL caffeine!!!! That includes pop, coffee, teas and yes, chocolate, although I have a bite from time to time. Not alot!.
1833175 tn?1319931206 Wow, I'm definitely feeling very, very odd. Spaced out and 'floaty', some confusion and lots of anxiety. Hate to say it but, feeling a bit like "oh, well. Wish I weren't here." Almost (but not quite) suicidal ideation. I believe I'm experiencing a withdrawal symptom from the Citalopram.
1833175 tn?1319931206 Felt really good both the exercise and reconnecting with the reservation. Anxiety and depression as well as the shoulder/back pain were nothing but vague memories until I started the walk back, then it let me know it was still there! The physical pain not the other things...

Avatar m tn The symptoms fade around late afternoon and on a scale of 1-10 are around 2 at night. I had taken Melatonin for sleep medication, which has now become a prescribed drug, but can sleep for 4-5 hours without doing this. Also have taken on relaxation exercises given by a hypnotherapist to release heavy tension in shoulder and arm muscles. Can someone please explain why symptoms go down the scale later in the day?
Avatar f tn I think I have always had a problem with anxiety, but was always able to deal with it. I have always had really bad nightmares or night terrors where I would have dreams of snakes trying to get me which would make me dart out of bed and run thru the house in complete panic. One time I woke up jumping on my bed and banging on the wall trying to get out of my room. (this started in my teens, I am now 28).
Avatar f tn Will this feeling go away, could it be caused by anxiety, the medication, or the incident that occurred the other night? Also I have been nervous because I just graduated college and my girlfriend is moving away for a few months, I am moving out, and starting a new job? Please let me know anything that could help me.
Avatar f tn Maybe it also a big part of being an entrepreneur which I haven't accustomed to. Being organize and hitting deadlines on a large scale. Apart from that I still find it difficult managing my stress level and just recently I felt like I discovered the true problem, I haven't and I couldn't spend time on the actual business because of my full time job. I got staff from previous owner but i hardly could get any training from them because I'm working during the day!!!!
Avatar f tn I have been suffering with HIV anxiety longer than I can remember, well 18 months since I gave oral sex. I have had every symptom in the correct tine scale, my partner has had a dry cough for the last 6 weeks and has just had a chest xray. I am so scared, so terrified we both have HIV, the guys at the HIV forum say its impossible to get HIV from oral sex. Please don't just say get tested as I am too scared.
Avatar f tn Hello i was hoping to gain some help. I was ill back in Feb the doctors i saw before this queried labrynthitis, sinusitis or migraine, It was the first time in 26yrs i had been ill really & it scared me as i felt rotten. Since then i suffered badly of health anxiety all related to my head & thus overtime this caused a nervous breakdown & depression as i was so worried that i had something serious wrong with me. Overtime this has improved through the use of a natural drug 5-htp..
1348086 tn?1370786785 After Wednesday (2 weeks ago) attack I have had (only in the weekdays) high anxiety at around lunch time (which is when I had the initial attack). I scale my anxiety 0 to 10, where 7 and up is an attack. Every day last week and this week I would wake up as a 0 or a 1 and then at around 11:00 I would rise up to a 4 or a 5. If I can make it through without getting higher then by 1:00 I am back down to about a 3 or 4 and with depression. Does this seem weird?
Avatar n tn draw a 10 point scale 0 = no anxiety and 10 is your worst nightmare level and then every day put an arrow on it. SOmehow when you detach yourself from your anxiety it actually decreases it. This way you can track how it fluctuates over time. 1. Best- try the anxiety video from it will work wonders.remember you can really control it...Acceptance really breaks the cycle. This is better than any pill out there! 2. SUN light - 30 min early morning + 1 hour rest of the day. 3.
Avatar m tn How sick will I be on a scale from 1-10. I have been taking 6-7 Vicodin ES for let's just say a 1/2 a year and have been on 3/day for the other 2.5 years.
Avatar f tn Now I weighed myself on Friday afternoon and I was 219 lbs, I went to bed and on Saturday around 12pm I weighed myself and I weighed 209 lbs, now Im not sure if I dropped 10 lbs in one day or if my scale is wrong because I had been around the same weight for the last 3 or so years.
Avatar n tn The short answer - yes. If you gooogle the Holmes and Rahl scale, it will show 43 events that causes stress. If you add up what has occured in the past year, it may determine the need for coping skills before illness will occur. One year, I had about 6-8 different life changing events happen which led to my anxiety issues including memory loss and loss of appetite.
Avatar m tn thanks.. are u confident that i will escape.. the disease.. i'm really scared now. wht are my chances of getting saved..
Avatar n tn Anxiety, depression, and your seizures. Anxiety is a depression-related disorder, which can be treated with standard anti-depressant medications. Plus, you mentioned earlier that you have had seizures, and anti-depressant medicaiton will actually help out with that. I DO NOT recommend Prozac, Zoloft, or Paxil. These medications may work for you, but they certainly didn't work for me. They just made me feel even more anxious.
Avatar f tn However, there remains a shortage of literature exploring the relationship between the alleviation of anxiety and the use of acupuncture, In this study, the S-Anxiety scale (STAI Form Y-1) of the State- Trait Anxiety Inventory (STAI) was administered to 89 patients, before and immediately following one acupuncture treatment. The S-Anxiety scale comprises twenty statements assessing the subject's feelings at that moment. Specifically, apprehension, tension, nervousness and worry are evaluated.
Avatar f tn I domt get sick and no history of cancer in my family but this is freaking me out.. my anxiety is 9 on a scale of 10.. now I can sleep or think straight.. I have this feeling of impending doom pls can someone talk to me..
Avatar n tn I'm hoping that someone out there may be able to give me some pointers on what to do next or share similar experiences with me... 4yrs ago I stopped taking Depo Provera injections as I was admitted to hospital 3 times with suspected thrombosis; on the 3rd visit a vein in my leg had "popped out" and had to be surgically removed.
Avatar n tn Rose, I am 56 and have had anxiety problems. I realize you don't have insurance but there are always sliding scale offices listed under mental health. You have obviously seen a physcian and it is time to do something different. You can even google your city and state and look for mental health providers or contact DHS. It sounds like you have kinda lost your will to go on and that s not good. Depression and anxiety have been my world.
Avatar f tn It happened again tonight as I was trying to tell a family member I was experiencing anxiety, saw another figure, and had a panic attack (from what I think). I keep being paranoid about what might be in the house and every sound/movement freaks me out. I don't know what to do, I can't afford treatment and I won't even sleep due to fear and racing thoughts.
Avatar f tn I have had some kind of paranoia all my life since in was a kid. I used to get nervous all the time but then over the years i calmed down. But for almost a year now i have been suffering with a lot of stress because i find that my paranoia gets triggered with the fear of pregnancy and STD's with any intimate moment i have with my boyfriend. We are not having sex because after having the worst pregnancy scare of my life i decided to become celebate.
Avatar f tn I did find a counselor to talk to, but only 3 visits were covered by my insurance, and cannot afford any more visits, so that makes me super frustrated, and adds to my anxiety. Such a vicious circle. I have been have my symptoms get worse in the last 3 years, and am trying to find help. Help that I can afford, that's the problem. I am still searching for an expert to diagnose me (with whatever I have), that's in my insurance.
