Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety symptoms neurotransmitters


Avatar n tn I suggest you ask your darker about a medication like Klonopin to more directly attack the anxiety experience which seems to underly the symptoms you describe. There is no one-to-one correlation between symptoms and neurotransmitters.
Avatar n tn I have suffered from ADD symptoms as a result of my drug and alcohol use a decade ago. I have been on many ADD and anti depressant meds but all to no avail except with Wellbutrin XR and somewhat with Concerta. The Wellbutrin worked amazingly well a long time ago but stopped shortly after I took a small sip of hard liquor. My doctors are perplexed by this but that is the only explanation I can come up with.
5093508 tn?1390543931 Does anyone have any info on natural ways to balance the neurotransmitters in the brain? With so many anti-depressant medications and anxiety meds it can be very tricky and risky to find the right one for the individual. What might work for one, may have catastrophic effects on another.
Avatar f tn Your anxiety sounds kind of like mine. Are you an everyday worrier? Totally over analyze everything? Does your stomach stay in a constant "knot" alot? Like bad butterflies in your stomach? That's my main symptom.. and it *****. The thing with benzos like lorazapam , is that they are addictive. I have lorazapam too! And am JUST LIKE YOU it sounds like. I only take it when I REALLY need one... and I usually just take one before bed if I have too..
Avatar m tn So after the trip I kinda went back to normal then a couple days later I started to get really weird symptoms. They ranged from pressure around my eyes, tiredness and some anxiety. I went to the doctors, he said it allergies. So roughly a couple months go by and I was playing in a hockey game and I got hit the wrong way, my parents thought I had a concussion so we went to doctors he said I did. Then my symptoms just kept deteriorating and getting worse.
Avatar n tn What is the level of neurotransmitters ( or receptors = I don't know much) in Delusional disorder, affective disorder and Schizophrenia?
Avatar m tn I know. I grabbed onto Adrenal Fatigue as I believe I experience sexual exhaustion as well. And it's just everything mixed together along with the symptoms of anxiety and panic. It's something that makes sense as it encompasses a lot of how I feel. Do you not think it's adrenal fatigue? I just want to get a couple proper tests done and see if I need a rebalancing of my hormones, neurotransmitters, electrolytes, etc.

Avatar f tn Go to this webpage, it lists the symptoms of deficiency for all of the neurotransmitters (anxiety and depression are caused by an imbalance of one or more neurotransmitters). Tell me which one matches up the most with your symptoms, though it sounds like GABA and/or serotonin deficiency.
Avatar f tn About a month ago I started experiencing some very strange symptoms that came on very suddenly, and were also completely new to me. I began feeling extremely tired, disoriented, lightheaded whenever I stood up, extremely anxious/panicky, and experienced brain fogging (like I was in a daze of sorts). After these symptoms persisted for about a week, I began to get very concerned because my daily activities were a mission to accomplish.
462570 tn?1273632977 A shortage or excess of these and similar neurotransmitters are thought to be responsible for emotional disorders like anxiety, depression, ADHD, social anxiety and mood disorder. Someone who has Parkinson’s disease lacks Dopamine. This question is best suited for the specialists. It takes years of education to have a good understand of how all these work together for proper functioning.
10912630 tn?1413770190 I get very uncomfortable when I am around anyone I feel really scared in public I feel inferior to everyone, Its impossible to just be myself!!! HELP.

1075109 tn?1281835691 Many believe it was invented by pharmaceutical companies to add medication when an antidepressant caused increased anxiety or mania, which is a common side effect. Better to ignore these labels and deal with whatever the real underlying problem is. Fibromyalgia is a collection of symptoms without a known cause, though there are a lot of theories, and I have mine, but it usually comes with emotional difficulty of one kind or another, usually anxiety and depression.
Avatar f tn What is canal? As to above, there's no being for or against medication, and nobody knows the cause of anxiety but it doesn't have anything to do with "the nerves." It has to do with neurotransmitters and hormones acting in too strong a fashion, probably from miscommunication with a part of the brain called the amygdyla. What you should do is the least invasive approach that works.
620877 tn?1282764097 They both are problems of the neurotransmitters. Chronic Anxiety Disorder, along with others like Social Anxiety Disorder are often easily treated with medications that change the levels of neurotransmitters in our brain - dopamine, serotonin, and norepinephrine. Often these are AntiDepressants. I can easily see that sudden onset of anxiety could be a part of a relapse apart from the normal concern or anxiety that we all might have over new or increased symptoms.
Avatar f tn If you lay a certain way, you may be collapsing some blood vessels in your legs, and when you get up they open up, and you get that tingling feeling. Because neurotransmitters serve more than one function, or combine with others to do other functions, they are probably the same neurotransmitters that are making you feel tired, or lack energy, effecting moods, anxiety levels etc.
Avatar f tn Sounds like symptoms of anxiety, I have severe anxiety and I have those same symptoms and I am 44 yrs old.Also at 17 your body could be lacking a certain vitamin, you need to have an extensive blood panel done to see if something shows.
Avatar n tn It could be your anxiety or your medication, contact you doctor and let him know how you are feeling. Take care.
Avatar f tn i can ask around because my mom has a lot of friends who have really bad anxiety that take does my mom..she has bad anxiety. but i will do a study and ask around! if that helps....
Avatar m tn This is my first time I've done this. I usually go to the ER or the Doctor but the tests I've done all come back negative. New symptoms arise and Ive done lots of exams but here recently i have been concerned with this sudden burning sensation that creeps in internally. I sense it like my neurotransmitters are misfiring and the burning sensations starts from middle outward and my neck burns and i feel irritated and disoriented.
18298688 tn?1463859539 No, this isn't serotonin syndrome. That's much more severe and quite rare. But meds that affect brain neurotransmitters often cause sweating and temperature changes and weight gain. Effexor is a very stimulating antidepressant, and as such isn't usually used for primary anxiety, as it can cause anxiety and some of what you're experiencing.
Avatar f tn I have had such major problems with making decisions and following through on them that it is really making me question my brain. I had Graves onset a year ago but was sick a few months before that. I wonder if this is why. I have some important life decisions that are hard to make with lots of pros and cons and big consequences and literally change my mind sometimes within a day about where I stand!
Avatar f tn I have been suffering from anxiety for six months now after being diagnosed with Ménière's disease. During that time have had many symptoms that have come and gone but the one that keeps lingering even as my anxiety has lessened is achey legs and twitchy tight calf muscles. This discomfort is almost constant and seems to be getting worst - although my increased worry about it could be playing a role in how I am perceiving the pain.
Avatar m tn Exercise will also have an impact on your neurotransmitters but more on your hormones. Hormones are almost the same as neurotransmitters. Neurotransmitters are used for short term action potentials (you can have like more than 50 action potential for a neurotransmitter while some hormones can take minutes, days, months or even decades to start acting) and the hormones are just like neurotransmitters but they are entering the blood stream, generally acting in the long terms with some exceptions.
1760175 tn?1313014293 when ever very small thing happens ,i take lot depression and go to anxiety mainly..i masturbate a lot ..i think its not normal as well.. what should i do to avoid this thing..
994817 tn?1249738278 Well, if you think about it, when you have chest pain from anxiety, and catecholamines (adrenaline) and neurotransmitters (serotonin, gaba, etc) are likely off balancce. When your neurotransmitters aren't functioning correctly, you can experience anxiety or the flight or fight response for no apparent reason. This often raises your blood pressure, raises your pulse, raises your awareness of your surroundings, dilates your pupils, etc.
Avatar f tn How do you know what you're feeling is withdrawal? You're on a lot of very heavy meds and what you're probably feeling is a lot of side effects. You could be feeling some problems with overdosing on affecting your neurotransmitters, such as serotonin syndrome. The problem is, you don't describe for us what it is you're feeling -- the symptoms.
