Common Questions and Answers about Anxiety treatment webmd


Avatar f tn About 40 million people have been diagnosed with an anxiety disorder in the US, now imagine what the REAL numbers are, as many people either won't or haven't yet sought treatment to be included in those numbers. There are definitely ways to address your anxiety. For starters, you have to find a professional to work with that will help you formulate a treatment plan.
Avatar f tn Can taking fish oil make anxiety worse? I have read that several places on the web latety and now wonder if it is contributing to my anxiety.
Avatar f tn I can relate to both of you, I always tell myself, dont do it dont do it! But I do.. and feel 100X's worse in the end. I end up thinking I have heart problems, cancer, tumors, diabates, you name it - I've probably searched for it. 29sillygirl, I am so sorry to hear about your son.. but if I were in your shoes I would probably be doing the same thing, unfortunetly, like you said - it just ends up hurting you :( WebMd, although an awesome tool, totally freaks me out!
Avatar n tn You should go back to student health service and ask them about treatment resources for generalized anxiety, which may be what is happening. It is very treatable.
Avatar f tn My stool appears to have mucus in It, along with some slight constipation. I immediately ran to Dr. Google and Webmd. Needless to say, I think I have cancer now. Health anxiety *****. Like being a prisoner of my own body.
Avatar m tn I'm now 5 weeks post treatment...treatment itself wasn't easy but no where near as bad as what I've heard about the older treatments but I seem to of crash landed coming off it...I am suffering server brain fog, short term memory is shot, I can't multi task, think straight, concentrate, focus, I keep forgetting names for things and getting lost mid sentence, this is a nightmare. I didn;t feel ill at all with hep c, now i feel broken!!
Avatar m tn So the first place you should have been sent is to a good therapist who specializes in anxiety treatment -- if you can stop the chain of anxious thinking the problem will go away, whereas drugs will only suppress the feelings. However, if therapy doesn't work for you, then your psychiatrist is right, antidepressants are the safer long-term choice -- benzos are addictive if used regularly, offer only temporary relief, and are hard to stop taking.
Avatar n tn It is amazing what the mind can create for the body. I was fired from my job six months ago and almost immediately began suffering from anxiety. I have had a list of symptoms, all very really and consistent throughout the day. Dizziness, eye pain, shakiness, derealization just to name a few. I also went to numerous specialists and had numerous tests including a brain MRI. ALL came back "normal". You are not a unique case, although I know you feel like that right now.
Avatar n tn This spring and last (at the same exact time, when oak pollen was strong) I got the constant burping and anxiety. For me, taking some Tussin product helped somewhat. Anxiety and allergies seem to go hand-in-hand for me and can produce some weird symptoms. Sometimes it helps just to know that's all it is. Hang in there!
12006219 tn?1422811931 Achillea, what you added is so true! Acceptance is probably the biggest obstacle for us with anxiety. It doesn't matter if it's social anxiety or health anxiety, it's acceptance of it all. There is a theory that anxiety is a manifestation of the fear of death.
Avatar n tn You have REAL physical symptoms and they are probably NOT caused by depression or anxiety. Rather your symp's probably cause the anxiety/depression. Who wouldn't have stress or get depressed feeling the way you described. Trust me, we understand! Lyme tests are usually wrong. Check these websites out: & FMS, CFS/CFIDS may also be a possibility.
Avatar f tn -went up to his brother and said “this is the night, I’m going to die” -began to have a psychotic episode: ~began to cry ~told us to stay away from him, get out of the house, “get away from me, I might hurt you”, “im going to die”… later…”are the cops coming?”, “don’t do it”, “don’t kill me”… etc…. he was trying to make himself vomit… was making a “dry heave” noise??... like metal music… etc black metal growl noise… ???
Avatar f tn Personally, I started treatment without using an SSRI, but by week 8 or 9, the interferon induced anxiety/depression, coupled with anemia from the Riba, was too much for me, so my Dr. prescribed a low dose of Paxil, which took the edge off. As the weeks of treatment progress, I'm in week 31 now, I feel more down, but it is still manageable. If it gets worse, though, I'm going to ask my doctor about it. Anyway, yes, depression is common in Interferon therapy. Don't hesitate to ask for help.
Avatar n tn No one can diagnose you but a qualified therapist/doctor. I have been taking Zoloft for the treatment of anxiety for six years. Most likely your doctor will perscribe an SSRI for you, but talk to your doctor if you have concerns about the medication. Be careful there are a lot of mis-information on the internet and in these talk forums. Make sure you are getting your information from qualified people and/or internet sites (WebMD is a good one). Good luck.
Avatar n tn When I got a rapidly developing cataract following retinal surgery, learning more about cataracts and cataract surgery really helped to reduce my anxiety. There's a lot of information available online at sites such as WebMD. (One of my favorite info sources is the patient education video at www tecnisiol com. It made me want to sign up for Tecnis lenses immediately.
1390055 tn?1365618655 So, we go into Google or WebMD, type in a disease or symptom, and see if things match up. This is called Googlechondria or Cyberchondria. It's caused by Hypochondria, which is also known as health anxiety. We type away at the keyboard, and press enter. Swollen lymph nodes. Flu like symptoms. Someone with no past sexual history may be told that they are experincing Acute/Primary HIV Infection, also known as Acute Retroviral Symptom.
Avatar m tn I have tried everything from hormone creams, thrush medication and amitriptyline drugs nothing is working. I haven't yet started my treatment for Lyme as I am waiting to see a Lyme literate doctor. Has anyone else has this problem with Lyme and is there anything I can do to make it better? Thank you for any help given.
Avatar m tn See if you can get treatment for that and some counseling to boost it. When my anxiety acts up I fret and have the same physical symptoms. Problem with anxiety is you can worry so much about being sick that you can make yourself sick. Focus on wellness topics. Read about prevention and zen meditation, positive stuff.
Avatar f tn Hi, I have a history of health anxiety and manifestations of physical problems that get exaggerated by anxiety and then I assume the worst right away. A recent one would be my cat ran away after some moving and finally getting him and my aunt (lives with me) to the new home and 10 minutes later he got out from the stress and he’s gone again. After that I’ve been waking up dizzy and sometimes I’d feel a headrush as if blood flowed down out of my head in a cooling sensation when I wake up.
Avatar f tn i felt like putting in a complaint againt her, i was spoken to like i was a child , i wouldnt be at the docs if my anxiety wasnt this bad, but i can never rest , i feel charged and on edge all the time, i carnt focus, i go out to public places like the shopping center for example and my anxiety is so bad, it causes depersonalization / derealization , and it really scares me thus just being a visious circle of anxiety im struggling to get out of, i suffered really bad with anxiety a couple of
Avatar f tn Alot of the people being prescibed Methadone have had a history of opiate use/abuse and I just wasn't quite sure if this 'TREATMENT' is BECAUSE of the opiate use/abuse OR if it's just another way for the people to deal with there pain thru the use of Methadone... Hope my question makes sence...
Avatar n tn It does not necessarily reflect the opinions of Henry Ford Hospital or the Vattikuti Urologic Institute.
935922 tn?1244819160 the list goes on, I've even had 2 miscarriages, I've seen numerous doctors over the last three years and possible diagnosises have ranged from Multiple Sclerosis, Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome, and anxiety, I found clonopin (anxiety med) really helps with easing the palpitations, but that's about it. I'm left with the other problems everyday, for three years. Someone mentioned to me recently about thyroid disorders.
4190741 tn?1370181432 Meditation, Mindfulness Exercises Reduce PTSD Symptoms Deborah Brauser Apr 26, 2013 Mindfulness treatment that includes meditation, stretching, and emotional acceptance can help lower symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), new research suggests.
Avatar m tn Have felt bad, feet tingling and anxiety back badly, especially around 8 a.m. Also feel spacey and get headaches. As some of you know, I have lost a lot of body fat during the last two years, and it is still getting worse. Shouldn't all this help stop problems? I'[ve gained weight but keep seeing skin get worse. Not sure if all this is medications or herxing. My first 5 weeks on Bicillin LA was like a vacation, then symptoms all came back. Any ideas?
Avatar n tn Hi rando, I looked up the medicine on webmd. This medicine has a lot of interactions with regular medication so I would be very careful...It also says to be careful with antidepressants.
Avatar f tn One night, after a stress filled evening, I experienced pain on the left side chest, went down my left arm. I have been dealing with anxiety and panic attacks for years. So I called a health line, cause I thought must be heart attack. Nurse says sounds like anxiety attack take a clonazepam (I had some on hand) and sure enough I felt better. There are none naracotic drugs you could try if you wanted to see to help. Amitriptyline is one for example.
Avatar m tn from the information that I have gathered on WebMD, gonorrhea will NOT go away without treatment. Since it is a bacterial infection, antibiotics that your doctor can give you should clear up the infection. If you do not take the antibiotics specifically as directed, the infection may not be cured. This is the same for chlamydia infections as well. Do not ignore your diagnosis, doing so will only compromise your health!
Avatar n tn You have anxiety. You sound like someone who has anxiety. You are on the anxiety forums. People with anxiety are paranoid that they have different diseases. Look at all the signs of that instead. It's clearly anxiety. People with AIDS don't all look like rappers, nor do they all have last names that are AIDS treatments. Remember that! Google your last name. It doesn't bring up anything to do with AIDS, instead it brings up results that have to do with the Homeless Animal Rescue team!
251908 tn?1189759431 i am extremely alarmed at this as I am only 22 years old and deal with anxiety issues, yet I might hav been a little bit dehydrated at the time. I take seroquel and gabapentin for sleep/ anxiety related issues.
