Anxiety therapy nyc

Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety therapy nyc


Avatar m tn Welcome to the forum. An African American CSW in NYC, especially a street walker, is obviously at high risk of having HIV -- but even "high" leaves the odds in your favor, with maybe a 10% chance either or both women were infected (that's just a guess, however). If I correctly understand your question, you probably did not have unprotected vaginal (or anal?) sex -- but you are the only person who can make that call; I cannot and will not try.
Avatar f tn Medication will block the attacks, but therapy can lead you to recovery. Don't waste any more of your life cowering from anxiety! Show it exactly who is driving your bus!
Avatar f tn I have been sick on and off since 2003. All really weird symptoms and never any explaination found. I have had Brain/spine/abdominal MRI's Ct scans of the brain/pelvis /ear and abdomen...tons of bloodwork and everthing comes up neg. I have had ear infections, urinary retantion, gastroparesis, GERD etc. I just started on a sm dose of prozac as my doc and I am at a loss..... We've ruled out autoimmune stuff as well....Is this anxiety. I had been very "keyed up" after 9/11..
Avatar n tn I don't tell everyone that what they have is anxiety driven. I only state this to the people that I think are having anxiety driven symptoms. Certainly, you are entitled to your opinion but that doesn't mean that you must denegrate mine. I have read some of your posts and I believe that you are here because you have had a dozen doctors that can't diagnose you and you are waiting for or have found one that finally says what you want to hear.
Avatar m tn If you haven't been in therapy this is also something to consider. There is always a root cause for your anxiety and with therapy you can find out what this is, deal with it and move on, often without medication. You've had a lot to deal with, and it may just be all the worry over your heart has created all your anxiety. In therapy you will learn coping and relaxation techniques as well. There are many wonderful people here who can help support you through all this.
Avatar f tn I worked myself up into fear mode of about a week once and had an ECG which said there was nothing wrong so I accepted that and never had any anxiety since, so self-cure works for some. . Therapy is likely quicker since they are objectively looking at your situation as you explain it, however the resolution is the same in the end - you accepting that it is hurting you to imagine tragic scenarios that won't materialize.
1979414 tn?1337806949 I am a 21 year old female and for about 5 months now have been dealing with severe anxiety (or so I believe). I will get lightheaded and dizzy, hot, irregularly strong or fast heartbeat and feel like I am just going to pass out. I've seen multiple doctors, including a cardiologist, who tell me I'm fine and it's just normal anxiety. But every medicine I take doesn't help. I'd actually rather cure this without medicine but I just don't have the time with my 1 and a half year old son.
Avatar m tn This isn't really a question, it's more or less a walkthrough of what I am going through with anxiety problems and alcoholism in hopes that it might help someone out there. Had I read online about how common anxiety attacks after a night of drinking are, maybe I could have started my road to recovery sooner, and maybe some of you can.
Avatar f tn I was just wondering if anyone has been on birth control pills and have suffered from anxiety or depression issues? I have been on the pill for 11yrs now and cant take how I am feeling anymore. I went on the pill for irregular periods, but since then I have been feeling blah, libido has decreased severely, I have sinus problems- I found out I have no allergies- so I think it is related to axiety, I worry constantly about everything; I get so nervous I get light headed sometimes.
Avatar f tn can give you something for the anxiety until then. the chest pains are probably a symtom of your anxiety. there's alot of us here that have chest pain and get all kinds of tests done only to find out our hearts are fine. any physical problems your having should probably be checked out, but i bet it's the anxiety causing them. take care.
Avatar f tn I almost failed out of a top 10 college and my life was miserable. I went through an intensive therapy for health anxiety and got better for a while but now I'm getting bad again. I am starting to think and worry about my heart 24/7 and I have massive, horrible headaches, too (probably from the stress and worry). I have been offered every medication under the sun by too many psychiatrists to count, but I am scared of taking anything but a beta blocker and Xanax. What can I do?
1717715 tn?1318300895 hey guys, I am currently looking for a therapist in the NYC area for my anxiety/panic attacks. now this panic/anxiety disorder gives me a lot of physical symptoms and the panic attacks come completely out of the blue. I know CBT is the way to go, but should I go the psychiatrist route? or the psychologist route? I know the main differences, and i think both have their pros and cons concerning therapy. have any of you had either success or failure with either of the two?
Avatar m tn Not all of us need to take medication. Many of us anxiety sufferers do very well with therapy. Do you know why your anxiety started when you were a child? It sounds like the issues were never dealt with and that's why you're having anxiety now. I would highly recommend getting in to therapy. It really can do wonders to help you understand why you have anxiety and to learn coping skills.
2099560 tn?1333840586 I had to take my wife and daughter to the airport this morning. They are flying to NYC for a week for her sisters baby shower. I hate it when they leave I get so anxious.Although I overcame some big obstacles today with my anxiety. I had a total panic attack the whole time on the way to the airport. I thought I was going to really lose it this time, but it didn't I actually got a little teary eyed when I was driving away from dropping them off.
1302779 tn?1287408629 Im fairly new to anxiety after a tough year learning how to deal with chronic migraine. I guess i never wanted to accept that I have a "chronic condition". After moving here to florida from nyc last Christmas and coming down with this migraine situation I recently realized it spun me into a depression/anxious state of being. II am seeing a therapist now for 3 weeks and started lexapro about 3 weeks ago so i am doing what is needed for myself to heal.
Avatar f tn The diagnostic was H pylori but the test was undetermined. Just moved to Austin from NYC, I saw a gastroenterologist and took the tri-therapy of antibiotics and after 10 days I was back to normal! But since then I still have nausea/ abdominal pain on a regular basis but very supportable, it's just annoying. No fever or no other symptoms. I can eat normally. I did blood/urine/stool tests and abdomen ultrasound that were both normal.
Avatar n tn You should be seeing a psychiatrist because a combination of some mild anti anxiety medication and talk therapy will help you greatly. I have an office in new york, and if you email me, I will help you find a therapist.
Avatar m tn chest xrays (normal), ekg, cbc, liver and pancreas enzyme blood tests (all normal), upper gi series (showed some thickening of rugal folds), upper endoscopy with biopsy (mild gastritis and gerd, negative on celiac and h pylori), gallbladder ultrasound (normal), ct scan of abdomen and pelvis with contrast (normal), colonoscopy (normal) and hida scan with cck (normal). I do have health anxietys and am currently in therapy and taking vybrid for anxiety.
559410 tn?1233504129 Is it clear if her disappointment in therapy is because the therapy was not very good or if she is re-experiencing the life pattern of not being treated well in the therapy? Meds can work for anxiety, depression, and psychotic thinking. They may be useful for her, but the best treatment for abuse involves confronting it, not suppressing it.
Avatar f tn I am a 33 year old woman who suffers from depression, anxiety and panic attacks. I take 100mg of Zoloft daily and 0.5-1mg Ativan as needed. I've been on these medications for a little over 2 years. I see a psychiatrist every 2 months. I have an intense and irrational fear of being alone. I'm afraid something is going to happen to me. For example, there is a conference I would like to attend later this month that is in New York City.
Avatar dr m tn Guilleminault and colleagues reported on a study where they took patients who have both insomnia and mild sleep breathing problems, and randomized them into either a surgical arm (to treat the sleep-breathing problem) or to cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). Based on subjective questionnaires, people who underwent surgical management rated much better in their insomnia scores than people who underwent CBT, although the CBP scores did improve to what was considered "normal.".
Avatar n tn Where to begin...I've had a hypercondriac-type anxiety all my life...always scared of being sick or dying...never resulted in normal freak outs though, I guess because I was a kid. I think I will type this in a time line so it is easier to read for everyone. First off, please know I am a 20 year old male. Please help. April 2003- Fifteen years old, I come down with mono on a vacation.

Avatar n tn I was taking 30 mgs Lexapro for about a year to treat depression and anxiety. It did not seem to do the trick so about 3 weeks ago, my psychiatrist started me on 150 mgs of Wellbutrin and gradullaly reduced the amount of Lexapro by 10 mgs every 3 days and taking 10 mgs until the prescription ran out. Last week we decided to increase the Wellbutrin SR to 2, 150 mgs doses per day. In the last couple of days I have been feeling really strange and sort of sickly.
Avatar m tn Recurring symptoms in a short period following at least partially effective therapy and without re-exposure suggests the need for re-treatment, either with longer therapy of a different antibiotic Hope this provides some direction.
Avatar n tn If everything checks out okay, then it is time to address it as anxiety. This can be done many ways. Some people prefer to try medications, therapy or both. Also, btw, these medications aren't "unhealthy". Sure there are risks, and everyone must make that decision for themselves. What *I* personally feel is "unhealthy" for ME is to have my life taken away due to fear and anxiety. If medications can help me with that...I'm game! It's always a personal decision.
Avatar n tn Her suggestions regarding replacing some anxiety drugs with talk therapy and exercise also seems positive. Maybe see how it goes with the new doc. Of course, "bedside manner" should not be dismissed entierly, and if it turns out that she and your husband don't connect at all -- then seeing someone else in the group is always a possiblity. I do know you two have been through a lot.
Avatar m tn Dr. Jose, As you know from my posts to you before, I have considerable anxiety about HIV and sex. I have also decided from this point onward I will not mix alcohol with sex. Just not worth it. On Saturday evening I went out and had sex with a man I met a bar. We were drunk and I bottomed. It hurt really bad and so didnt last long, and he ejaculated outside of me. We had sex the next morning and he came outside again.
Avatar f tn I think it depends on the severity of you BPD. One session a week is standard but, you may need more if you are newly diagnosed, or still having a lot of problems. Have you been prescribed any meds?
