Avatar m tn today after lunch with the girls, I got a voicemail from someone threatening to sue me. Of course, I was shocked, stressed, depressed. Felt like a **** magnet - cried and cried and cried. I haven't cried like that since... since my brother passed away - ok, that crying was worse. But I haven't cried continuously as I did today - took an anti sychotic to destress me, slept most of the later afternoon and evening.
Avatar f tn Unintentional and unexplained weight loss is definitely not good. There are many causes like worms in stool, depression, anorexia nervosa, AIDS, cancers especially colon cancers, drug abuse, infections and loss of appetite. Loss of appetite can again be due to certain medications, drug abuse, depression, AIDS, acute and chronic infections, cancers and hypothyroidism. Either you do not eat well or there is increased metabolism as in hyperthyroid states, HIV, cancer etc.
Avatar m tn Whenever I go to my therapist, I feel like I've been beat to death. I've spilled my guts, whined " Oh woe is me! " and it takes me hours or days to get over it.
Monster being depressed has caused a increase in weight gain for me. being injured has not helped. it is hard to do anything while in constant pain. sometimes I feel like I am crazy to feel this pain all the time. what is really wrong with me? why always this pain? I just want to be fit and exercise. is it really to much to ask of myself?
Avatar n tn He has physical symptoms that we have been ruling out with the doctor for physical causes (his lack of belief that anxiety/depression is the cause). He has been on med's again for 5 weeks, but they are not doing their job. The psychiatrist has boosted & changed his med's to help speed up treatment, but so far not good. Bipolar disorder runs in his family & so does alzheimers disease. Could anxiety/depression cause these disorders to rear their ugly heads?

Avatar n tn I woke this morning after a largely sleepless night in tears. I hope I can pull things together for my Mom's birthday this afternoon. I know I can do better. I wish my family would not keep interfering. When I don't do what they want, it causes so much friction. I don't want to see them for a few days. My sister wouldn't even return my text last night. I wish I didn't have to act all happy today when I am so down. I will take some ativan and see if it calms me down.

Avatar f tn So I have been having problems recently but my doctor says my tests are fine. They include the back of my head feeling fuzzy which makes me want to shake my head to clear it, I feel sick to my stomach and weak, my eyes get unfocused and my face feels hot, but I dont have a fever. I pant and want to eat but also want to throw up and my doctor says I'm fine. It happens at least once a day in random moments.

Avatar f tn Am I the only one who has become depressed since becoming pregnant? I'm excited to meet my baby and start this new chapter in my life but for some reason I feel sad and worthless and I had to quit my job because I've had such horrible morning sickness and I sit around all day which makes things worse.. But my body won't let me do anything.
Avatar f tn I suffer from panic disorder and just recently found out I'm expecting. I take Lexapro (10 mg) and although my Dr. doesn't foresee a problem with my taking it I'm afraid it will harm the baby. I'm also thinking about asking for a c section when the day comes for fear that I will suffer from post pardum depression. I'm also worried that although I haven't had any real morning sickness I have experienced mild headaches and dizziness.

686172 tn?1256839717 Most commonly, vertigo results from motion sickness. Motion sickness may develop in people whose inner ear is sensitive to particular motions, such as swaying or sudden stopping and starting. Another common cause of vertigo is an abnormal collection of calcium particles in one semicircular canal of the inner ear. The resulting disorder, called benign paroxysmal positional vertigo, or BPPV, is especially common among older people. It occurs when the head is moved in certain ways.
Avatar f tn If you are referring to unintentional weight loss, this may be due to depression, possible cancer, chronic diarrhea, drugs, eating disorders, infection, loss of appetite, or malnutrition. If it persists, have this evaluated further by your doctor. Nutritional assessment and blood tests including a chemistry profile will help determine the underlying cause. Take care and best regards.
Avatar n tn For more than 4 yrs I have been on 20 mgs of Paxil for chronic depression. Since I learned of the pregnancy, I discontinued the medication after learning of the pregnancy. The side effects of the discontinuation of this medication have been both physically and emotionally disturbing. The nausea, blurred vision, inability to concentrate have only made the normal morning sickness all the more unbearable.

97615 tn?1212678589 I have felt extremely nauseous this AM and had to eat a bowl of cereal and a bagel before it stopped. I hope this isn't a bad sign for GD. I have that test on Friday. I didn't take the Kamut yesterday or today. Only b/c I drank some spirulina that actually made my belly all gurgly and gave me stinky bunnies. My dh said, no green stuff for a whole day!! I will go back to it once I get home. I just couldn't stomach it this AM w/ feeling so sick.
Avatar m tn To answer your question "will depression make me sick?" Yes depression will make you sick. Depression is an illness itself and it's symptoms are frequently physical sickness. The most common are the ones you are already experiencing. For me the bad physical sickness is what made me sad and filled with 'gloom and doom'. If I weren't physicallly sick because of it, I would be happy and positive.
Avatar f tn what causes brain swelling and what can be done about it? also what causes spots on the brain. my mothers mri had showed swelling and spots.
Avatar f tn ive had multiple blood tests ultrasounds and a scope done threw both ends .. I have anxiety and depression and im staring to think I may also have borderline personality after reading up on it ... I have basically no pain tolerance and almost everymornign when it gets to a certain point and I cant stay positive about it anymore ... I shake and hyperventilate and my hands and feet always go numb and tingly ...
Avatar m tn Have there been events in your life to make you feel this way??Mmaybe you might be fed up with life because of things you have been through?? I would suggest going to the doctors for a full physical examination to rule out causes such as thyroid problems etc. If they come back clear, then your next step would be counselling. Talking about what you are feeling may help. Hope this helps!
