Avatar f tn I'm assuming you decided to try Citalopram because of your anxiety. Is this right? If so, what symptoms of anxiety were you suffering that made you decide to try medication? I'm also assuming the symptoms you're describing now are quite different from the ones you were suffering before taking the drug, but which ones were different and which ones are similar?
Avatar m tn I never ever get a break from this but the doctor has said its anxiety. Seriously though, shouldnt you only get physical anxiety symptoms when u are actually feeling anxious?? Im on Diazepam, but its not this as it was happening constantly before I started on this.
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 n tn It is most likely that you are having heart symptoms because of an underlying high level of anxiety. You have chopped off the peaks (phobia and panic) but haven't yet lowered the base.

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.
Avatar m tn Anti-Anxiety Diet Beth W. Orenstein Good-for-you foods that boost mood are whole foods, many rich in serotonin and B vitamins. If you're struggling with anxiety and stress, consider skipping sugar, caffeine, and alcohol — all substances that can worsen your outlook. Studies have shown that some foods make us feel calmer while other foods can act as stimulants — at least temporarily.
Avatar n tn I feel like I cannot think at times, ando thertimes I feel okay. I am not sure if its anxiety or not, but I haive been very paranoid its something like a braintumor etc, keep thinking to myself maybe i should have a cat scan to seeif its a brain tumor/ anurism/ hemmorage something like that.

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 n tn It could be your anxiety or your medication, contact you doctor and let him know how you are feeling. Take care.
Avatar m tn 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. Feels like burning from inside my spine up to my middle of my brain.
620877 tn?1282767697 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 n tn I wasn't too concerned because they didn't seem to be causing any other symptoms. I had an EMG done and had my potassium and calcium levels checked, which were all normal. That was approximately 3 weeks ago. Now these fasiculations have become very pronounced. They are almost constant in my lower legs and also now in my feet. I have sporadic periods of them in my shoulders, arms, hands, abdomen, eyes, and these are frequently accompanied by a tingling sensation and patchy areas of numblness.
Avatar f tn Most of us know it because we've lived it. I had anxiety when I was hyper and had it when I was hypo too. Anxiety symptoms go away away for me when my levels are on point.
Avatar n tn This drug isn't known for having as bad of a withdrawal problem as ssris and snris, but any drug that affects brain neurotransmitters can have this effect. What you're describing is pretty classic withdrawal symptoms except the anxiety, which if it's the same as you had that got you on the drug means it's just back again but if it's a lot worse, that's withdrawal.
Avatar n tn The following natural anxiety treatments that have scientific studies supporting their use: Magnesium Inositol Valerian Root Kava Herb Rhodiola Herb Appropriate Exercise (not too much, not too little) Hypoglycemia Diet "Food Allergy" Elimination Diet Candida Yeast Theory (speculative)
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.
Avatar m tn Closer to end of April when my last few finals were approaching, when I went to sleep at night I felt intense anxiety and my heart was beating really fast and I was very restless, sweaty and i experienced chest pains because I was stressed out and anxious about the finals as well I was getting more increasingly anxious about the loud sound and how it would affect my sleep for finals. I didn't really make anything of it though, as I thought that when finals would end I would feel more relaxed.
Avatar f tn The CNP put me on 20mg of Celexa daily and 2mg of Valium as needed. My anxiety is worse now than ever. My body gets hot and tingly. My stomach twists and turns and knots up. I can't breathe and my chest gets tight. I feel this way almost every second of everyday. It's only gotten worse since I started taking Celexa three days ago. I understand that it takes time for meds to build up in your system, but the Valium has done NOTHING to help my anxiety and my depression is still just as awful.
Avatar f tn I have suffered with severe anxiety symptoms for about 20 years. Three weeks ago I began the Atkins diet, so I continued taking my multivitamin and bought an additional magnesium supplement to take to cut down on the muscle cramps and twitches sometimes caused from this diet. All of a sudden, after about 2 weeks on the magnesium, I noticed that my irritability, anxiety, fear, fatigue, and mild depression were gone!! I am being much nicer and friendlier to people now.
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 f tn It would be essential at this point for your psychiatrist to explain your diagnosis and further evaluate the symptoms you are describing and your treatment. Some of the changes you are describing can occur in bipolar such as sudden episodes of anger but only a psychiatrist could determine specifics. If they would note bipolar could potentially part of it a full mood stabilizer is generally what is helpful but they would have to make that decision within their clinical discretion.
