Common Questions and Answers about Anxious fearful disorder


Avatar n tn The neuro also wrote me a 30 day script for .5mg Clonezapm (I've had a moderate anxiety disorder for going on 11 years). But now I'm driving myself nuts with thoughts of ALS sneaking up on me even though the neuro told me that 99.9% of the time BFS sufferers have nothing to worry about (unless I start experiencing muscle weakness/atrophy). This morning, my left forearm started bubbling; then my left kneecap; then the back of my left thigh; my right forearm also has a slight twitch. Great.

Avatar m tn My eyes also feel a little strained sometimes, everyone says these symptoms come from anxiety (minus the whole lymph node and sore throat thing), but im so fearful of having lymphoma, lukemia, thyroid cancer, or any form of cancer!! I fear that all these symptoms are really not anxiety, and that im dying or something, I just want reassurance that this will all end and i'll get my life back, but that feels so..afar.. I thank you reader that you've gotten this far.
Avatar n tn While I admit my life is largely disrupted by this panic disorder and agoraphobia, I am not suicidal or depressed, I am actually quite hopeful when I look back on myself 4 months ago, I have made progress and have been able to hold a job as a waitress. I am confident that with the right help, I can overcome this... So any advice you can offer me as to non-medicinal therapy, or personal experience, I will listen to with an open mind. Thank-you!

Avatar f tn I started having stomach issues, sweating, nausea and bad or fearful thoughts about three years ago after certain events like partying with friends or traveling and losing sleep from jet lag etc. At the time, I didn't think much of it, but now several years later I am experiencing these symptoms regularly. I call them "attacks" because I never know what will bring them on, or how bad they will be. I usually take several trips to the bathroom as everything goes right through me.
Avatar n tn I've been DX'd with panic disorder and general anxiety disorder, with a chronic fear of cardic disease, making me cardio-phobic. With therapy and Klonopin, my panic attacks are under control, however, my chronc anxiety and hypervigilince of heart diesease remains, even though my cardiologist says my heart is fine. I'm also on Toprol and a diuretic for mild HBP, again, caused by my anxious state.
Avatar m tn It is likely that the more attacks you have the more you may fear having an attack and the more likely that you may have another attack (as you are already fearful / anxious). From what you've said I can reassure you that your sugars are normal! Wishing you health.

Avatar f tn Her mood drops, she becomes unpleasant, verbally impulsive (saying embarassing things), she gets fearful and seems totally unable to cope with people, making a decision, or doing anything other than slumping and cutting off. She used to do this when playing with friends when little, just slump and abandon them. She says she gets dizzy and things around her look and feel strange.
Avatar f tn The counselor said that they had no suggestions or solutions for them. They sometimes get extremely anxious and fearful. They talk fast much of the time. Of course, they were instilled with talking fast/taught to talk fast as their parent says come to the point fast or they get brushed-off. It is very difficult to get a word in edgewise with their only parent. I see no real evidence of psychosis or delusions with them.
Avatar n tn I began feeling REALLY drugged, out of touch with reality and fearful of losing my mind. I have never been the same ever since that day. Basically, the feelings I have described are present for most of the day. Sometimes I am much better, sometimes I am much worse, - but at no point in the day do I actually feel completely normal. Thus, it is not quite your regular panic attack, which last 30 minutes and then gets better.
329165 tn?1515475590 you are now on a manic/hyper phase of possibly Bipolar Disorder or major depression! I was shocked and the Doc almost got a good kick on the knee for saying that, but my spouse was also there and he told the Doc how I've been behaving hyper all week and they both decided that they had the right to place me under "suicide watch" (visit GP 4 consecutive days at 4pm) and start me on Valpro and Seroqual.
17568 tn?1424977159 I have been painfully shy, withdrawn and very uncomfortable in social situations for as long as I can remember. I only very recently realized that social phobia/anxiety disorder fits my symptoms like a glove. I am intelligent, have a graduate degree and have been relatively successful in my career (although I seem to be fearful of success and being in powerful/authoratative positions for any length of time).
Avatar f tn A forum member mentioned conversion disorder. I am interested in knowing if anyone else was told their symptoms wee psycho somatic and if so, did they finally get diagnosed and how long it . Thanks.
Avatar n tn I am a 30 year old closeted gay man who have lost myself to hook-ups. Basically, I am fearful that I have contracted HIV because of my numerous partners and sexual behavior. In the past four years, I may have had around 50-60 sexual partners. I feel I am the most promiscuous man on earth. My sexual behavior is only limited to passionate kissing, oral sex (more on getting sucked), and mutual masturbation.
Avatar f tn 5 mg of Xanax four times a day to address the anxiety. I'm still anxious and fearful, but also incredibly fatigued, sleeping a great deal, and - here's the worst part - have had severe diarrhea for 3 weeks. I love food, but cannot tolerate anything. We've tried tapering the Zoloft from 150 down to 100 mg, but the diarrhea is just as bad.
569458 tn?1221396019 (anxiety rearing it's ugly little head) Why I am fearful? I don't know. My boss is very understanding about my panic attack disorder. offcourse he has no idea about my other little nasty secret!! Usually I take 80 to 100 mg of hydrocodone a day. Sunday I took 40 mg. Monday 30 mg. Today isn't over yet but so far 12 1/2 mg. One day at a time! I am going to do this!!! I will feel better and there will come a day that this will all be a bad memory and my life will be good!
Avatar f tn A few months ago every week or two I would wake up about an hour after falling asleep with what I thought was a panic attack -I felt very fearful and like I was going to puke. Then I settled myself down and went to sleep. During the day I was fine. Then, a few months ago, I started feeling like this during the day all the time -very anxious and like I needed to vomit, but this never happens at night anymore.
Avatar m tn Your son is anxious and fearful when he wakes up, so he seeks you out. The fundamental problem is that he is waking up through the night, rather than sleeping through the night (which is the norm). You should ask his primary care doctor about a referral to a pediatric sleep disorder program.
1540869 tn?1351217613 Having a substance use disorder, PTSD, panic disorder, depression, or one of the anxious-fearful personality disorders makes it especially hard to recover from BPD.

414333 tn?1226195093 I am so fearful that I am losing my mind!!!! Also known as going bonkers... I hope I am not, coming off of Psychiatric Medicine is the most challenging thing I have ever encountered in my life, especially benzodiazepines... I hope I make it back to sanity, cause I am pretty sure I am not there right now.... Maybe it is just my OCD coming back full force, I can only hope.. I would rather have my original diagnosis, than suffer from an illness that requires life long treatment via medication...
Avatar m tn Tics are the core symptom shared by transient tic disorder, chronic motor or vocal tic disorder, and Tourette's disorder. It is the severity and course that distinguishes these disorders from one another. The age of onset for these disorders is between two and 15 years. In 75% of Tourette's disorder patients, the symptoms appear by age 11. Causes and symptoms Causes Emotional factors were once viewed as the cause of tics, but this explanation has been largely discounted.
Avatar f tn I ve had epilepsy for37 years, I do definitely agree with you. EPILEPSY makes you feel very insecure and fearful. After I had a seizure and come round I felt really insecure and needed someone to hold on to and hated being left on my own. As you probably no its a Nervous Disorder and effects your nervous system . Make sure if take VIT B not to take with Epilepsy Med cos can interact and stop it from working cos yr Med is strong.
Avatar m tn i posted this a while back..when i was so afraid that i was bipolar or schitzo..i look back and laugh a lil cuz anxiety is an A-hole..but read all the way and you'll understand the big differences.. Heres something i was reading and will hopefully rest ur weary minds about going insane and all k.. Common anxiety and clinical depression are types of "neurosis”.
Avatar f tn I think your son is showing signs of anxiety issues but that does not mean he has an anxiety disorder (disorders are far more severe than issues). Children who sufer from anxiety often suffer from sensory issues (the two seem to be co-morbid).
Avatar n tn Welcome back. I'll try to help, but probably not in the way you are expecting. Both this and your previous thread indicate an irrational and frankly abnormal fear of contagion. Nobody in the world ever caught HIV from the sorts of events described in your previous question and especially this one. The "rational" you indeed is correct; the fearful you is mistaken to be so afraid.
Avatar m tn I hope so. I'm anxious by nature, so it will be a long three months with a 6 month follow up before the paranoia go away. But it sure is a wake up call. Few things have terrified me more than that call. I think it's back to the cautious nature I had in the 80's when hiv was a death sentence. Its sad that something as fun and beautiful as sex has to be so fearful. Thank you for your info.
Avatar m tn I don't want to take any medications, and have had *some* relief from exercise, teas, passionflower, etc. Can anyone give me any tips to keep my mind from getting anxious when out eating our around my girl's family? THANK YOU.
Avatar n tn For the past year and 1/2 or so I have been suffering from some sort of tactile hypersensitivity, it increases drastically when I am anxious also. I am taking no medication or anything. There are certain things I cannot STAND to touch like terrycloth, I hate touching paper like writing paper, I cannot even fold laundry at all.
