anxiety

Avatar f tn I think you would benefit from trying a different medication and also asking about what other options you have such as therapy , biofeed back, massage therapy and many other options. Have you had injections done at any point? The medication needs to be changed and you need to ask what else besides the medication is available for your type of pain.
Avatar n tn Celexa does not do anything for anxiety, and one of the sx's listed on label, is ANXIETY.. The drug they recommended, and Rx'ed for me was Effexor. This is for anxiety and depression. Seems to work, but as far as anxiety, nothing like a good old Zanax, or two, or three, damn, lost count.. kidding!! Good luck, and talk to your Dr.
Avatar n tn Boninclyde, I'm glad you set the date. You will make it through the surgery I have no doubt. I'm praying for your anxiety and Ziggy's rapid heartbeat. I don't want to make you more anxious by bringing it up all the time, so please let us know when you want to talk about it. Or, let us know if it's ok if we keep asking you about it. I know you want this and have thoroughly research your options to make sure you're doing the right thing. It is going to be ok! My mammo is scheduled for Oct. 18.

Avatar n tn 14:38 What is the medication most often prescribed for ADHD and anxiety in a ten year old 75lb. girl? I've tried ritalin which has just made her depressed. We then switched to Dexadrine which seemed to work well twice a day but when we switched to a time released capsule, there seemed to be an inconsistent release of the medicine into her system. We upped the dosage to 35mg. per day and she went through a paranoid pschotic state with possible hallucinations at night.

Avatar n tn My GP and neurologist, who are both great individuals, both think it is anxiety related. After almost 4 months of symptoms, I am sure if it was ALS that I would be in worse shape, but cannot seem to trust my doctors. Is it possible that my anxiety over the disease is causing somatic symptoms? I am thinking about changing from Lexapro to something else, because I am gaining weight and am still worrying a lot. Do you think I should change to another SSRI?

Avatar n tn I have had panic disorder and agoraphobia for approx. 20 years, in this time I have been on many different meds (zoloft,paxil,surmontil,marplan,nardil,buspar,xanax,klonopin etc) and I am now on lexapro and klonopin. I still suffer severe panic attacks and agoraphobia, which now has affected my job. My job location has been changed due to forced rearrangement and I have not been able to get myself there without severe attacks. I am at a loss, I have been through C.B.
Avatar n tn Have you tried things like Magnesium? Cutting out simple carbs? Sometimes theses things help. Many times I can control mine by just eating light meals of protein, vegetables and light fruit (only after protein). I've read that other people have had this same experience since simple carbs raise insulin levels quickly.
Avatar m tn I went through a typical course of PT and OT at The Childrens Institute in Pittsburgh. During the therapy, I was put through was 5 to 7 hours of therapy a day including intensive physical, occupational and pool and/or yoga therapy. While it was often painful, such therapy helps to improve blood flow and break the pain cycle. The therapy usually lasts between 2–4 weeks before the child has the pain under control. This therapy is mostly to teach mind over body.
Avatar n tn Not all ADs are used for anxiety, but many are. Also, Buspar can help with anxiety, but it is not like a benzo such as Xanax. It must be taken for a number of weeks to get into your system and is more effective if taken along WITH an AD. It's not a pill you take and suddenly say, "Wow! It helps!" No, it is more subtle than that. 2) Consider getting the old books written by Dr. Claire Weekes (an anxiety researcher pioneer).
1448936 tn?1363209946 yeah.. this shi*t absolutely *****. For me, I dont even have a CLUE as to why I have this anxiety disorder or why i have these panic attacks.
Avatar f tn realm, then they are obligated to continue monitoring you for quite a while (that means repeat neuro exams and MRI's) to see if it will declare itself enough to warrant the beginning of Disease Modifying Therapy. Do you have any abnormalities on your neurologic exam? Balance, reflexes, coordination? So, when did you deliver? Because MS is most likely to manifest itself in the several months right after delivery.
Avatar m tn i believe i've learned my lesson on the maintenence part of anxiety. relaxation/therapy/exercise etc... these are going to be life long things for me, as with my A.A. program. i've only been depressed once in my life, that is when the business deal mentioned above went bad/the 1st semi agorphobic phase that i pulled out of. the business was my whole life basically, i had no balance. i took no medication for this. i just sort of rode it out, did postive things and it went away and i got better.
1719825 tn?1316269432 Taking meds strictly by a family physician's prescription may help you weather the anxiety storm, but it won't help to actually treat the anxiety and what is really troubling you. What type of anxiety are you suffering from?
Avatar m tn If it is cervical spondylitis, then this can be managed by a combination of medications, physical therapy, manual therapy, swimming etc. You could wear a corset to support your spine. Other than this, I am sorry there is nothing much which I add. Please discuss these possibilities with your neurologist. I sincerely hope you will find this information useful in your journey towards better health. Hope you get well soon! Good Luck and take care!
253566 tn?1219683299 My Hep C treatment was handled thru the University of Pittsburgh Liver Center and I saw a Endo there as well so very competent doctors. I was left for years with symptoms that seemed to be endo but all my numbers were normal?!?! Crazy weight gain! Horrible chronic fatigue! Sleep issues so many more... Finally the Mayo Clinic came out with a diagnosis of Post-Interferon Syndrome. This fit me perfectly. ____________________________________ So, back to this issue with my scan.
Avatar n tn The Doctors watched her for about an hour and then told us it was just anxiety. They sent her home. She never had the problem recur. Anxiety can cause many symptoms that seem like they must be dangerous but are not. I am glad your tests are normal. Please be aware of the effects that anxiety can cause. Be happy and healthy.
Avatar n tn 4 months ago I had an unprotected one night stand with a girl who afterwards told me she had genital herpes but that she was on suppressive therapy with Famvir. About 24 hours later I started to get burning in my thighs.
1040516 tn?1253036624 The North American Pet Health Insurance Association (NAPHIA) has raised awareness of the value of pets, and pet health insurance, by designating September as National Pet Health Insurance Month.

1858011 tn?1319840953 It seems as though they are finally getting down to the wire on what is going on with you and it seems they are thinking along the lines of a ruling out nerve or muscle disease. If you think you're going to have an issue with anxiety over the muscle biopsy procedure, just make sure you have an anxiolytic prescribed for that day. It depends on what they will do? Did the doctor say it would be a needle biopsy or an open biopsy?
Avatar n tn amongst other things. Once the surgery is over, and after the period of physical therapy..you should be able to get off the meds. Good Luck to you. I hope you get the help you need. I also hope to see you posting in the future..let us know how you are doing. Take care.
Avatar n tn Hello, I've been on Wellbutrin XL 300mg (2mos) and prior to that, I was taking wellbutrin sr 100mg 1x/day (1.5 yrs). I take wellbutrin for depression and anxiety which I've suffered with since I was a teen-ager (I'm 33 yrs old) but only started treatment after the birth of my daughter who is now 2 1/2 yrs old. Wellbutrin works well with depression and anxiety but lately I'm very short tempered. I could be feeling great then something slightly annoying happens and I start to boil.
Avatar n tn 5 mcg/kg sc each week, plus Rebetol 13 + 2 mg po daily to no interferon therapy (Vitamin E/Milk thistle) in genotype 1 patients with mild liver disease: Fibrosis scale of 0-2.

Avatar f tn We just became aware of the vision issues as #1 he has had his optic/intracranial pressure checked regularly and has neither, and #2 a typical optometrist saw no problem and reported him to have 20/40 vision. It was actually a post-traumatic brain injury dr in Pittsburgh that runs a hyperbaric clinic that alerted us to his eyes...our son then described seeing life in "frames" when his brain feels "wound too tightly". Definitely not a good thing!
Avatar n tn My cardio has assured me that an NSVT in a structurally normal heart will VERY rarely become sustained, and will almost NEVER become V-fib. I can sense your anxiety, and that's the hardest part for me. On anxious days, I am so hyper-aware of my heart, I can convince myself that the next irregular beat is going to be a death sentence. On days when I'm feeling good and feel that I can power through these, the blips hardly affect me.
