Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety symptoms in adolescents


Avatar n tn All children and adolescents experience some anxiety. It is a normal part of growing up. However, when worries and fears do not go away and interfere with a child or adolescent's usually activities, an anxiety disorder may be present. Children of parents with an anxiety disorder are more likely to have an anxiety disorder. Anxiety disorders can be effectively treated. Treatment should always be based on a comprehensive evaluation of the child and family.
Avatar f tn s face it, stress is in the workplace in our schools in our private lives and in our world. It is state of mental or emotional strain or tension resulting from adverse or very demanding circumstances. However, stress and the effects of stress is a subject that has not been thoroughly studied. Even so, prescription drugs are readily available for illnesses that are the product of a stressful environment.
Avatar m tn A growing body of work exists about the short- and long-term effects of stimulant treatment on cardiovascular parameters in children, adolescents, and adults with ADHD who are receiving stimulants. These data, limited to healthy subjects without known preexisting cardiac anomalies, consistently demonstrate small, statistically significant, but not clinically meaningful increases in blood pressure and pulse as well as minimal changes during electrocardiography.
Avatar n tn s no history of any kind of disease in my family, and the only real health problems I suffer from are anxiety and stress..
Avatar f tn Oh and to clarify---- the psychiatrist handles the meds (such as an antidepressent) and manages the overall case. The psychotherapist manages the therapy portion. As conversion is part of stress----- the talk therapy part is key. But yes, she will likely need some meds. Finding someone that specializes in this probably isn't likely but a psychiatrist that is well versed in all psychiatric issues and adolescents will be beneficial. Good luck.
1130576 tn?1260150770 A 2008 study showed that children who struggled academically in core subjects in first grade were more likely to display negative self-perceptions and symptoms of depression in sixth grade. Meet with teachers to find out how your child is doing in school. If your child is having trouble in school, be sure to praise his or her other strengths — whether in music, athletics, relationships or other areas. Promoting participation in organized activities.

Avatar f tn Hello, There are specific types of ovarian cancer that are more often found in children and adolescents that are different from those found in older women. In children and young girls ovarian cancer usually presents as an ovarian mass and typically they only report pain if the ovary twists and its blood supply is cut off. So, ovarian cancer in young people is overall uncommon, but definitely occurs. Your symptoms would be atypical.

Avatar n tn Lexapro is mainly used to treat major depression in adolescents and anxiety in adults. Zoloft has wider applications in post-traumatic stress disorder, OCD, anxiety, and depression. Luvox, Lexapro and Zoloft are all antidepressants and are known as serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI). All three are longer acting SSRIs, but have different half lives, different pharmacokinetics etc so can show difference in side effects and withdrawal symptoms.
20801560 tn?1512718136 You know, you posted this misinformation once before. Shortness of breath, as I mentioned then, isn't anemia. Anemia is a condition that causes all the symptoms you describe and is the condition you get if you're chronically low in iron. You say young women and children are the most prone to anemia, but all females become young women and all humans start out as children and very few develop anemia. Too much iron can lead to heart disease, especially in men.
Avatar m tn Anxiety and stress play an important role in adolescents in the development of erectile dysfunction; and is the most common possible cause. At a primary level, I would suggest being a bit relaxed and working on the psychological factors with your partner. You could also see a psychotherapist/ behavioral therapist for the same. It might also be beneficial to get rid of factors like smoking/ alcohol/ drugs, if involved.
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 f tn It is a common skin infection caused by the yeast Malassezia furfur. This skin disease commonly affects adolescents and young adults, especially in warm and humid climates. Treatment involves topical and oral antifungal medicines. Most cases of fungal infections respond to over-the-counter products, which contain any of several basic ingredients: miconazole, tolnaftate, terbinafine,ketaconazole and clotrimazole.
Avatar m tn They can certainly occur in adolescents. The vision symptoms could occur with migraines, though an opthalmologic cause would need to be excluded as well. It may benefit your son to be evaluated by a pediatric neurologist. An eye evaluation is warranted too for his intermittent vision loss symptoms, and if on further questioning he reports vertigo (room-spinning), evaluation by an ENT may be helpful as well. Thank you for using the forum I hope you find this information useful good luck.
Avatar f tn It definitely sounds like you are suffering from anxiety. Anxiety can cause a host of very real physical symptoms like you describe. My advice to you is to seek out a psychologist who can start some therapy with you. The more you learn about anxiety, and discover coping mechanisms, the better equipped you will be to deal with it. You can ask your family doctor to recommend someone who is used to dealing with adolescents and young adults.

Avatar f tn I have been vomitting with no pain or any other symptoms for the last 5-6 months. This started happening after my spouce and I split up after a long relationship so I figured it was stress induced. It has been quite some time now and the vomitting is still happening (sometimes very violently without any warning). I have seen my doctor twice and I have gone for 2 ultra sounds.

1271018 tn?1296536826 The effects of whole-cell pertussis vaccine wane after 5 to 10 years, and infection in a vaccinated person causes nonspecific symptoms (3-7). Vaccinated adolescents and adults may serve as reservoirs for silent infection and become potential transmitters to unprotected infants (3-11). The whole-cell vaccine for pertussis is protective only against clinical disease, not against infection (15-17).
Avatar n tn My 15.6 year old son recently had his TSH, T4, T3 and antibodies measured along with an X-ray taken of his left hand to determine his bone age. The reason for the tests were no linear growth or weight gain in last 6 months. His symptoms are anxiety, fatigue & vision changes w/ blurring. The Labs reference ranges for our labs normal TSH are .34-5.60 His results were: TSH - 5.04 T4 - 0.84 T3 - don't have that result yet Antibodies - still waiting on that too Bone age - 14.
Avatar m tn Sore muscles, stiff joints, weight loss, loose stools, rashes, and warm flushes could all very well be because of ANXIETY (There are over 100 symptoms to anxiety--most are physical). Stress & Anxiety is the SILENT killer---it can mimic ANY illness, and break your body down QUICKER than being exposed to HIV. So relax, hopefully you get tested, and if you have anymore questions, feel free to contact me. Good Luck, and STAY healthy...
Avatar f tn ) Anyway, some of the symptoms that you are describing happen to be symptoms of anxiety also. My point is, yes, it may be possible that your body does not agree with a certain med. BUT, we are also prone to having physical symptoms in response to stress and they may hit you coincidentally when you are trying a new med. I have never had a bad reaction to any of these. Zoloft, Paxil and Cymbalta did not bother me.
