4626633 tn?1382600722 You know Pat, I stopped them for a year in 08, simply because I felt my anxiety was better. I had no wds then. So I have no idea why now.? I have Visteril. I will check into Elavil. In fact, I was RX'd it before, but it knocked me out, so I didn't stick with it. I wouldn't mind being knocked out now! The first week I couldn't even get on here. I have never been more paranoid in my life. I was afraid I had permanent brain damage.
Avatar n tn Almost since birth I have suffered from malabsorption which in adolescents worsened and then mental problems surfaced: anxiety, depression, insomnia.

Avatar m tn You won't instantly turn into a social butterfly but you'll be able to maintain and endure without all of the anxiety symptoms crashing in on you. I also really commend you for realizing your anxiety is seeping in and making you worried about your health. For me, a therapist I can go to is dictated by my insurance company. So, get a list of those doctors, and then check them out. Your own primary care doctor may have someone they know/like/have heard good things about.
Avatar f tn Months later my symptoms developed into a deep depression and elevated anxiety. I then became uninterested in taking part in life simply because I felt so horrible all the time. I think you are very wise to have her evaluated by a Psychiatrist. This may not be depression in her case, but there is a good chance it could be and a good psychiatrist should be able to determine this. As for the treatment of clinical depressive and anxiety dissorder.....
3060903 tn?1398568723 Words to the wise Combining SAMe with an antidepressant is safe, for the most part, but in very rare cases may cause serotonin syndrome — a potentially deadly complication that causes agitation, anxiety, confusion, nausea, vomiting, and palpitations.

1216899 tn?1288573925 I'm going to list my symptoms, so that others may have some insight, in layman's terms. I hope anyone else with the deficiency would also post theirs.
Avatar n tn I felt so stuffed, and would feel a little something something in my stomach, and next thing you know I am vomiting in the bathroom. Happened several times a week. Now, I vomit randomly (almost always right after eating and especially drinking water). Usually, if I have a small portion of just one type of food, I don't vomit. But, that's not necessarily the case, sometimes if I eat something and my body just doesn't want it, it comes out.
Avatar f tn Just remember, if you ever DO decide to get him assessed by a psychiatrist, make SURE it is a doc specializing in the treatment of children/adolescents. That makes a HUGE difference in both the eval process and treatment options. Don't get ahead of yourself. You're feeling a lot of guilt because you are not at 100% right now, you feel you aren't being a good Mom because of what you have going on...been there, done that, hon.
Avatar n tn I almost got buried in the wasteland of psychotropic medication, when in fact, I needed hormonal treatment. Professionally, I worked with adolescents for almost 30 yrs. and it opens up a plethora of diagnostic and treatment questions. I have much to learn! Your son's example is very interstesting. How was your son's condition diagnosed?
5624042 tn?1372200166 Many young children also lash out because of low self-esteem, isolation, and a sense of failure and anxiety. Sadness and depression is often linked with anger in young children. Young children also tend to act out of angry defiance to assert independence when they feel unimportant and lacking control over their lives. It is important not to dismiss their transgressions, because childhood-onset anger and aggression is correlated with serious problems later in life.
Avatar m tn It just seems as if once you cross the bridge into health anxiety, the symptoms never end. I wouldn't put too much faith in that insect bite stuff. I have logged hundreds of hours reading about hiv and I haven't seen anything like that. I hope we all get over this soon. Im going to test again in the next couple of days, and am scared to death. Why don't you go this week too?
994817 tn?1249741878 They said it was just anxiety. The symptoms went away until July 25th, when I had my second panic attack. The symptoms haven't gone away since that day. So I went to a Dr. yesterday, and had some blood work done. I don't eat well or get enough minerals being a vegetarian. And all this year I had a big Red Bull everyday in the morning, ate starchy foods, and drank a ton of diet soda everyday too. At Urgent Care, I was told to get off caffeine. Now I only drink diet soda w/out caffeine.
Avatar f tn According to her they talked most of the time in the office ( started in June ) first time b/c Kate was in the hospital and I was staying with her and was real moody and we were arguing a bit. Then our son went in for surgery and once again I was there and we did have a fight about how he is not there for me and the kids and so on. IT ended up being pretty bad and yes the Scarlett issue came up. She said that is when she gave him her # and said if you need to talk.
Avatar n tn My ears have been popping and cracking when I yawn and swallow (everytime) since I was very young. In my adolescents I noticed it much more then now. I remember a time when I was about 6 that I may have damaged my eardrums...long story Anyway, I had lots of earaches as a child and had pressure and sinus issues as an adult. I don't think the popping is a health concern...I just think it can be very irritating if you let it be...
1689981 tn?1305847587 Good golly, (to put it mildly) what kind of doctor or information have you been getting. Lexapro is used to treat anxiety in adults and major depressive disorder in adults and adolescents who are at least 12 years old. Risperidone is used to treat schizophrenia (including adolescent schizophrenia). Neither of these are approved for 4 year old children. What kind of a doctor prescribed this?

Avatar f tn Do not use this medication if you are allergic to amphetamine-dextroamphetamine, or if you have hardened arteries (arteriosclerosis), heart disease, moderate to severe high blood pressure (hypertension), overactive thyroid, glaucoma, severe anxiety or agitation, or a history of drug or alcohol addiction. Some stimulants have caused sudden death in children and adolescents with serious heart problems or congenital heart defects.
Avatar m tn Unless someone lives in an HIV endemic area such as an inner city, is an immigrant from a country with high HIV prevalence, is bisexual or a partner of a bisexual, or is an injection drug user or commercial sex worker, the prevalence of HIV in people without these risk factors is extremely low- less than 1 in 1000 people.
Avatar n tn so reading this i feel better again that im not alone with the cramps under my breast. i do have anxiety and also pulled muscles in my back as well as a pinched nerve directly in my back where the pain is under my breast actually.
Avatar m tn This forum in particular is filled with caring people that are in all stages of the anxiety/panic cycle and can relate and care about progress. Fourth; REALIZE that this is normal process and that you are not alone going through this. I have talked with many people that are going through this for the first time and feel like they are alone and have no hope whatsoever about becomeing their 'normal' selves again.
Avatar n tn Hi mrsdennen, To my understanding, fibromyalgia does not affect the joints. Also, the swelling and fever you have, I don't believe could be related to the fibro. It sounds like you could have lupus or now have CFS (chronic fatigue syndrome), along with fibro. Rashes can appear with fibro, but not CFS. Also, dermatitis is common in patients who have lupus. Sometimes people diagnosed with fibro will get CFS and CFS patients' get fibro sympdromes.
Avatar f tn ) if I had never started taking vyvanse, because I would never be able to keep my thoughts in order enough to resist temptations or drinking to relieve anxiety. It helps me refrain from acting on an impulse to drink and think about what I'm doing before I do it.

In one study, 56% of boys and 74% of girls between the ages of 12 and 17 reported having had a headache within the past month. By age 15, 5% of all children and adolescents have had migraines and 15% have had tension headaches.
Avatar m tn That said, one of the other things that we see fairly frequently in adolescents is relative dehydration. This causes the heart rate to increase to maintain blood pressure. I recommend making sure that you are taking in 32-48 ounces per day of fluid (water/milk) and a salty snack (pretzels, saltines, pickles), plus not skipping meals AND eliminating any caffeine, which can also cause palpitations plus cause you to urinate more.
Avatar n tn I should also mention there's no history of any kind of disease in my family, and the only real health problems I suffer from are anxiety and stress..
521840 tn?1348844371 David Goodman*, researchers emphasized that the same symptoms we recognize in childhood ADHD also occur in adults. These same childhood symptoms take on different forms in adults with ADHD. For example, most adults with ADHD are not floridly hyperactive. Instead, an adult is more likely to report ‘inner restlessness’ or problems with impulsivity.
Avatar n tn I've also noticed that in general I have a constant issue with body odour (i.e. sweat). My anxiety and perspiration are, granted, an ill fated combination, and I imagine this is another thing contributing to the odours. I notice no one has mentioned anything in regards to their physical health or fitness. Personally, I'm near over-weight. I have had issues similar to hose described with diets, and noticed a correlation between the two.
